Cognition and mobility are two key factors that allow children to learn and interact with the world around them. From their first interaction with their environment to their first steps, these key milestones can help to indicate developmental delays which may impact a child throughout their lifetime. Cognition and Mobility issues can be recognized at an early age, allowing for a plan to be put into place to help guide the child through their formative years.
Types of issues**
Cognitive delay: This may mean that a child needs additional support to catch up with their peers due to learning disabilities or lack of intellectual awareness
Gross Motor delay: This is when a child cannot easily coordinate the movement of their muscles, such as being able to stand or hold something
Fine Motor Delay: When a child is unable to complete everyday tasks such as using utensils or playing with Legos
