Homes in Stanislaus County (Infant Development Specialist)
This is why I am passionate about special needs.
I believe that everyone has untapped potential and deep intuition that responds to nurturing and connection. Working with infants with special needs allows me to watch that potential and intuition blossom, as their parents and I help clear obstacles between them and interaction with their world.
Skills: these are areas where I have expertise and might be able to help others.
COMMUNICATION, INTEGRATIVE THERAPIES, POSITIONING
Needs: these are areas where I have questions and will be looking to learn from others.
SENSORY SOLUTIONS, VESTIBULAR ORIENTATION
The most valuable piece of advice I would offer to others regarding special needs.
Think of it as a dance. Each child has to find their own rhythm, and create a new dance. Hopefully, their parents are willing partners. There are always other people who can join the dance and add their own flair, but they should stop to learn the rhythm and the steps that have already been established!
What I hope to gain from My Special Needs Network
A forum to communicate with the families assigned to my caseload, and a source of ideas and information for myself and for them.
