This fun workbook is a collection of 34 sensory-motor activities, imaginatively conceived and whimsically illustrated that address both fine motor and gross motor skills, perfect for children of all abilities.

Sometimes babies are born with a condition or special need that affects their development. Other times a condition is not apparent at birth, but over time parents and doctors begin to wonder if the child is developing appropriately. 

Early Childhood Intervention means finding specific ways to help a child become as functional as possible.

In some situations, the therapy a child receives at an early age enables that child to reach developmental milestones on target or close to target. In other words, early intervention can sometimes help a child "catch up" to peers. There is support and education for the family as well.
