From Birth to Two: the Neuroscience of Infant Development

From birth to two years old is marked by great cognitive, emotional, social and physical development in children, and the brain is growing at a rapid pace. Research has enabled professionals and parents to identify developmental milestones for assessing a child’s progress across time. Although children develop according to a predictable sequence of steps, they do not necessarily proceed through them in the same way or at the same time. Every child’s development is unique, influenced by genetics, prenatal development, the care he/she receives after birth, and the experiences prompted by his or her environment. So there is a wide range of what may be considered ‘normal’ development. Leading scientists will review both basic and clinical research and discuss factors that influence child development from birth to two-years old, helping us understand what to look for, how to interpret what we observe, and what, if anything, can be done to intervene if something goes “wrong.” Please join us as we delve into the world of infant mental development, with Lisa Freund, Pat Levitt, Lisa Shulman, and Mark Frankel.

The Neuroscience & Society series is a partnership between The Dana Foundation and the American Association of the Advancement of Science (AAAS).


OT-V Episode 10: Sensory Seeking in Children

Entwistle Power Occupational Therapy presents Episode 10 of our Occupational Therapy Video series: Sensory Seeking in Children.

Issues with sensory processing are one of the most common reasons parents seek the services of an Occupational Therapist. One of the most troubling sensory related concerns for parents is when their child is a “sensory seeker.” Sensory seekers are constantly “on the go” as they are attempting to obtain the sensory input that their bodies crave.

In this episode we discuss how an Occupational Therapist can help if you are concerned that sensory seeking may be a problem for your child.

We hope you enjoy this episode of OT-V! Please subscribe to our channel for more informative and helpful videos.
