Child’Space practitioners create an environment and interact in ways that stimulate a baby’s healthy functioning. It is a holistic method in which the practitioner builds on the client’s present resources, awakening and reinforcing core functions while guiding her to use them spontaneously, creatively, expressively. Eventually the practitioner finds ways to bridge that experience (and the confidence of being able to learn) to less familiar, less-developed domains. It is an inherently personalized approach.
The strategy of focusing on learning and functional adaptation makes the Child’Space Method applicable to babies with special needs, or with poorly understood, subclinical or multiple interrelated issues. Here is a list of some diagnoses, for which clients have benefitted through the Child’Space Method. The work can be adapted to help older children as well, enriching development, including those diagnosed with autism or epilepsy, and those with profound disability.
