Infant Massage has shown to be impactful on every area of child development. As a birth mandate state, incorporating Infant Massage into our early intervention programming allows us to make a greater impact at an earlier age, allowing us to narrow the gap between children with a delay and their typically developing peers.
Infant Massage also gives us a new skill set, which allows us to directly intervene on the child/caregiver relationship at an age when bonding is the most critical.
We are in the process of training all of our home visitors in the county.
