HOW CHILDREN LEARN
Research has shown again and again that children learn best through random interactions with their environment and other opportunities in everyday life. Parents are their child’s best teachers, and they above all others have the chance to work with their child, throughout the day, every day.
In order to provide the best learning moments for a child to be successful in, parents or caregivers need to have the competence and confidence to teach their child within naturally occurring routines. The support offered by a developmental therapist in the natural environment can play a vital role in learning how to make the most of what is already happening in the home.
