The naval Hospital of the armed forces at Mumbai
Inaugurated their Early intervention center last month.
And it was my privilege to be able to contribute to their endeavor by compiling this booklet for them.
I loved working on this because it allowed me to merge my passion for "play" with my husband's expertise in ENT and create a valuable resource for parents.
Playing with your baby is the best way to build the brain while detecting developmental delays.
And this booklet shows parents how they can play with their babies as they grow - to connect with them - engage with them - build their brains and observe and detect developmental delays in hearing and speech.
A delay in detection of communication skills can impact children mentally, emotionally and socially. Can lead to learning problems and behavioral issues.
And it is only through educating parents about detection and available intervention that we can prevent these issues.
These booklets are available to parents at the INHS Asvini.
Very grateful for this opportunity to make the world a better place for children.
