Welcome to Our Blog!
It is our mission to help parents find relevant infant development services and resources they need to make choices for their little ones. We are also here to guide professionals such as occupational and physical therapists that want to learn more.
As an occupational therapist, I’ve worked with over 6000 babies with flat heads or that tend to look in one direction. The technical terms are plagiocephaly, brachycephaly, and torticollis. Our hearts and our skills will always be devoted to the highest quality of care for those infants with neck and head shape issues.
Some babies with flat heads will benefit from cranial banding (commonly referred to as baby helmets). When a cranial band is needed, we are highly experienced and will lead you through the process. Our clinic in Charlotte is devoted exclusively to infants with plagiocephaly, brachycephaly, torticollis or neck and head shape issues.
Parents do not have critical information they need!
And when I say parents, I mean devoted, intelligent parents. It’s not uncommon for us to work with parents that are doctors themselves. Parents do not know what equipment helps development; what equipment can be detrimental; and what is the best way to position your baby in his car seat. When it comes to tummy time – the how, why, when, and what (to do if your baby doesn’t like it) and when it comes to ways to feed and lie your infant down to sleep – parents don’t have the information they need!
Every parent wants to nurture infant development and head shape. Now, with classes and individual consultations in your home, we can help. This part of our efforts is devoted to every parent that has ever said “I wish I had known!” Just listen to a satisfied parent.
“I will tell you, I have been impressed with the service that you have provided to Knoxx. You always seem to know what milestones he will be reaching next and always make me feel at ease when I’m there. I think it will highly benefit him to continue to see you until he is developmentally on target with his actual age”
Why is there continuing to be an increase in babies with flat heads?! It’s been 20 years since 1992 The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended that infants are safest to sleep on their backs to prevent SIDS. So why after 20 years does the issue of babies with flat heads keep getting worse?
