Physiotherapy is best placed to assist with delayed development of gross motor skills which are vital in the infancy years to achieve independence in mobility. 

 

At Lifestyle & Sports Physiotherapy, Breanne Jakeman has been treating the paediatric population for over 9 years.  Breanne worked in the Paediatric Allied Health Unit at Campbelltown hospital from 2003 – 2006, spending 12 months as the Paediatric Senior therapist.

 

Breanne now leads the team of paediatric physiotherapy at Lifestyle and Sports Physiotherapy in Camden where any child in the community can be cared for including children eligible under the Better Start Initiative.

 

Check the table below to check if your infant is meeting their Gross Motor Milestones in the correct timeframe.

 
 

Positive early experiences are essential prerequisites for success in the later years of school, the workplace, and the community.  There  is  a significant  need  to  identify,  as early  as  possible,  infants  and  toddlers  in  need  of early intervention services to ensure that therapy is provided when the developing brain is most capable of  change .   Families  also benefit  from  early  intervention by  becoming  equipped to  meet  their  child’s  special  needs  from  an early  age  and  throughout  their  lives.

 

If you have any concerns about your child’s development, please call (02) 4647 3373 to speak to Breanne or to make an appointment.
