Should I worry if they are not talking yet? What can I do to help my baby in their development? Dr. Chava Shelhav draws on her forty-years of experience in the Feldenkrais movement to offer answers using her holistic approach to child development to practitioners, parents, and caregivers. Child Space is Shelhav's unique method for assisting babies in achieving specific developmental milestones at the appropriate time. This includes developing physical skills, language, social skills, emotional attunement, and cognitive development. A baby's natural curiosity and innate desire to learn is stimulated through movements, games, and toys. Methods of touch provide the deep stimulation a baby needs to feel parts of their body, creating the awareness required for mastering motor skills, balance, and coordination. Also covered is the importance of nutrition in the beginning years of a child's life. In addition, healthcare professionals such as pediatricians, family and child therapists, and physical therapists working with infants will benefit from the new perspectives and techniques presented in this book.
