Join us to learn about tummy time and why it is important. This series of C.H.A.T. Resources programs are designed for parents, professionals and the community. Our Occupational Therapists will answer your questions including:
- When to start tummy time?
- How to incorporate tummy time in your routine?
- What if my child’s head is flat or prefers to turn their head to one side more than the other?
- Will my child’s head always look like this?
Learn essential tummy time moves and positioning techniques to prevent early motor delays, neck tightness and flat head syndrome (Plagiocephaly
