    Baby's First Steps and Neurological Development

    We've discussed crawling in a previous episode, so it only makes sense to discuss walking in today's episode! Dr. Chris and Dr. Toxil discuss the importance of standing and walking ON TIME and how the idea of "they will walk when they want to" may lead to delays in other parts of development!

    So tune in now to learn when your baby should start standing/walking, signs to look out for to head off further delays, and strategies for parents to encourage their baby's mobility to optimize their brain development!

    Vision Therapy: Connecting the Eyes and the Brain with Dr. Derek Tong, OD

    Vision Therapy: Connecting the Eyes and the Brain with Dr. Derek Tong, OD

    When we think of vision issues, we often only consider glasses or contact lenses to address them. But what if there was a way to catch potential issues as early as infancy? And if there are issues, do they really only stop at the eyes or is there a disconnect with the brain?

    We are honored to have Dr. Derek Tong come speak on the podcast to discuss preventative eye check ups, how he restores the connection between the eyes and the brain, how the brain develops in relation to vision, what activities children do that can cause vision issues, and how he uses vision therapy to help children with autism!

    So tune in now to learn about how a baby's developing brain connects with vision!
