Baby Assessment

How to know if your baby is OKAY or not

This baby assessment tool does not diagnose your child. It is a simple evaluation to determine your child's movement health for milestone development. 

For typical and non-typical children - This tool is to help you understand your child's movement needs and what you can do to improve their movement abilities and milestone development.

1. Assess your child for rotational movements.

Rotational movements are more than just range or motion.

Rotational movements play a significant roll in your child's development process because the more rotational movements a baby has the more movement and milestone success the baby will experience. 

The less rotation a baby (child) has in their system, the higher the risk for movement and developmental delays physically and cognitively.

The Newborn Movement Assessment™ is the only baby assessment of it's kind that can determine a baby's early intervention needs from day one of birth if needed.

 

Please note that the baby assessment is called the "Newborn Movement Assessment," but the assessment can be done on any child of any age. A child's birth experience plays a roll in determining your child's risk for developmental delays due to movement restrictions in their system.

"Words can’t describe how grateful I am towards Michelle and her team for all they did for my daughter. After 9 months of physical and occupational therapy without results, we decided to take her to Arizona to get movement lessons. We saw progress since day one. My daughter loosened up and started to reach her milestones. Now, she is on track. Thank you, Michelle, you guys can’t imagine the big and positive impact you had in our lives."
