Hi! My name is Karen and I am a pediatric physical therapist. I hope to empower all parents and caregivers with the knowledge, tools and confidence to support their child’s development no matter their background, experience, or season of life they are in.
I offer virtual developmental coaching sessions, pediatric physical therapy services (in MA), and free education via my blog and social media platforms! Not sure what service is right for you? Fill out the contact box below, or start a chat!
I can't wait to meet you and your little one!
Celebrating the inchstones to milestones through everyday play!
Often the focus is so much on children achieving the big motor "milestones" (rolling, sitting crawling, walking, skipping, etc.)
For years I have been educating parents and caregivers that there are many smaller skills that need to be achieved and developed before the milestones are met and children succeed. Just like a butterfly has to start their life slowly inching along before they are able to spread their wings.
Especially if your child is having a hard time reaching their milestones, it is important to celebrate and appreciate the small "inchstones" along the way.
I believe that EVERY child is unique and child development should NOT be generalized. To see how I break down the milestones into inchstones, check out some of my posts below, and make sure you are following me on social media for more!
