Child’space NYC offers small classes for children who would benefit from more individualized attention.* It is a wonderful option both for infants who receive services through Early Intervention, and for those who were denied services but for whom concerns remain. It can be a helpful additional program for children who are undergoing physical therapy or other therapies. Child’Space NYC is a privately offered class, and has no connection to the EI program.
In Special Attention classes, just as in all child’space nyc offerings, the focus is on: a) helping parents better connect to their infant through touch and b) teaching techniques of touch and movement specific to each baby’s needs to support their development. These smaller groups allow for more individualized time with each child.
