Each year, 1 in 40 children in the United States is born with an early motor delay, and an estimated 400,000 children are born at-risk for a delay. When healthcare providers know what to look for, they are better equipped to recognize the subtle signs of a delay in infants as young as 2 months of age, giving them the opportunity to receive early intervention services and thereby reach their fullest potential.
This footage shows a comparison of two children at 2 months of age demonstrating typical development and atypical development in the Standing position.
The full video (12 minutes) goes through all 8 positions with the two children and has an accompanying handout, showing the children in each position side by side.
