Parent Coffee: Motor Milestones in the First Year
IN PERSON, AT THE EDCJCC!
Led by Shawn Leis of Little Feet Therapy
Join us for coffee, the company of other new parents, and a relaxed conversation about purposeful play and how to help your little one reach their motor milestones. Shawn Leis, pediatric physical therapist and founder of Little Feet Therapy, will discuss purposeful play positions to encourage your child to reach their motor milestones, when these milestones should be reached, and when to reach out to a medical professional for additional assistance. Bring your questions – we’ll spend a lot of time talking through participants’ specific situations. Babies warmly welcomed!
