Posture: How it develops and why standing, as well as sitting, support for the young child is so important.
This webinar will review human posture and its development. From birth, we will review the developmental milestones as they relate to postural and functional development and from there review why standing and early sitting support is so critical. We will discuss the benefits of each as well as delve in to some of the commonly asked questions about standing and sitting for our younger children.
