Does My Child Need Early Childhood Development Therapy?
A Developmentalist (DV) has a background in child development, psychology, education, special education, plus experience with children under 3 years of age, and often a master's degree in Early Intervention.
The DV works with families to help children achieve skills in a typical developmental order. They are able to assist children in the areas of physical skills, cognitive development, communication, social/emotional skills, and adaptive skills.
A Child Developmentalist assists the family in following through with licensed therapists’ recommendations, including integrating recommendations into play activities.
