NEW!!! Infant Play and Grow

Infant Play and Grow offers a variety of learning opportunities for infants (6 weeks to 6 months old) and their parent, grandparent, or other caregiver. Under the direction of a pediatric physical therapist, caregivers learn and encourage their infant’s development through massage, developmentally appropriate positioning, early reaching, social skills and toy selection.

Carefully planned activities may include massage/touch techniques to increase bonding, tummy time principles, discussion on use of baby equipment, toy play progression, and strategies to promote reaching, rolling, and sitting.  Caregivers are provided with guidance to help build parent/infant interactions and their baby reach their full potential in development.
