Then why not book in for a baby MOT with specialist paediatric physiotherapist, Deirdre O' Donoghue, at Move Kids Physio.
Like their Mummies, all babies deserve a full MOT to give them the best start in life. The Baby MOT offers a full and thorough assessment of baby's motor skills, neurological and physical development to date. Like your baby gets percentiles for height and weight, the baby MOT will provide you with a percentile for their overall motor development. The baby MOT will also provide you with a tailored programme of play based activities to maximise their developmental potential.
Baby assessments are very important at an early age to screen for potential developmental and/or orthopaedic conditions which when spotted early are much easier to treat and babies are much more responsive to early intervention versus intervention when they are older.
What the Baby MOT provides:
Full assessment of motor skills, neurological and physical development with standardised assessments with a highly specialised and experienced paediatric physiotherapist
Tailored home programme of play based activities, carrying, positioning as needed
Access to online educational materials including pre-recorded video content, education handouts, useful website links regarding infant development for 1 month
