DATES: July 28, 2019
The first year of life is crucial in the development of a child, and the adult the child will eventually become. During this time, an infant is forming the patterns of movement, perception, and organization of information on which it will build its relationships to itself, others and the world. Facilitating development during this time can greatly enhance a child’s physical, emotional and intellectual abilities.
This workshop will explore essential principles of a baby’s movement and perceptual development, with special focus on topics particular to newborns through 7 months of age. The workshop will integrate two aspects of learning:
Time with Babies and Their Caregivers: While Lisa leads a workshop for babies and parents, practitioners have a chance to observe and appreciates the developmental process of each child.
Experiential Learning with Lisa: Workshop participants will explore specific development ages and skills in their own body. Using an embodied approach to learning, we will experience first hand ways to support and facilitate the developmental process.
