The Development Gap Clinic is designed to address those “gut feelings” or desires to get a second opinion allowing parents to be proactive and have peace of mind about their baby’s development. Subtle motor delays and skipped milestones have become more common and are frequently being brushed under the rug, considered “normal” because they have become common, or parents are told, “let’s wait and see.” The truth is, many of these subtle red flags are preventable and babies can easily get back on course when parents have the right information. The Development Gap Clinic provides specialized development coaching in lieu of waiting for a referral to a licensed therapist.
"We found Erin when our guy was just a few months old. He was so easily overexcited it was a challenge to go anywhere or visit with more than one family member. We learned how building his core strength and focusing on nutrient dense, clean foods and sleep were all connected to his mental and physical development. As he got older we also learned the importance of crawling and bilateral development (He was a risk for early walking and skipping crawling). So much needs to happen before walking to set them up for health and strength! He is one year old now and just started walking. The change in his ability to focus, as well as, his coordination and play skills are profound. Prevention is the key, and there is so much developmentally the parenting books don't cover. These changes will impact his development for the rest of his life. We are forever grateful!" ~ Katy C.
