  • Developmental play and strategies to ensure milestones are met
  • Range of Motion to address movement limitation or prevention of movement limitations
  • Positioning to foster optimal movement patterns and comfort
  • Therapeutic handling to decrease stress/irritability and foster self soothing behaviors
  • Containment touch/modified massage to optimize comfort and decrease stress
  • Feeding / swallowing difficulties
  • Parent education and support
