At Growing Forward Therapy, we are here to support babies and families in order to optimize health and well-being. Occupational Therapy Services include comprehensive assessments, individualized therapeutic interventions and support for reaching goals.
Baby may need skilled OT support for:
Concerns regarding development in motor, sensory, visual and cognitive skills, torticollis / head turning preference management, head molding, success during tummy time, feeding difficulties, among many others.
Mom and Family may also need skilled OT support:
Ergonomic evaluations to minimize pain, upper body and musculoskeletal assessment including hand and arm conditions, adaptations in order to best support family and baby wellness.
OT is a holistic practice and we may assist with referrals to other healthcare professions as needed to ensure you and your family are fully supported (speech therapy, physical therapy, lactation services, specialty doctors).
Along with traditional skilled occupational therapy, we also offer TummyTime!™ Method group or 1 on 1 sessions. This is a wellness based educational approach to empower and equip families to best support the unique needs of newborn to precrawling babies. This is done by providing parent education, awareness and support.
What is TummyTime!™ Method?
A progressive scientific program with a philosophy of early infant development based on encouraging floor time, movement, Autonomic Nervous System Regulation and Resiliency and connection & relationship with parent and family.
It includes significantly limiting the use of containers/infant furniture, swaddling and anything that restricts or inhibits baby’s natural movements and parent’s innate behaviors.
This program was developed by a renowned occupational therapist named Michelle Emanuel. For more on TummyTime!™ Method, please visit her website: https://www.tummytimemethod.com/
