Anyone who’s ever fed a baby knows that getting the spoon to their mouth before they grab it can be a challenge….and a mess. I have a solution. Follow the two spoon rule. Give your child a spoon of his or her own to hold while you are feeding them. Every now and then, dip their spoon into the food and let them guide it to their mouth. (You can help if they’ll let you!) Not only is this a great way to keep them from grabbing at the spoon you’re holding, it’s a terrific first step towards future self-feeding. Give it a try!

Dana was…able to pass on her skills knowledge and confidence, teaching us how to handle our daughters fears and concerns on an ongoing basis until, thankfully, they disappeared.
Dana is a consummate professional, easy to work with, always available to answer questions and, most importantly, empathetic and positive in all that she does. I would highly recommend her to any family going through transition or crisis that wants to ensure the resilience of small children.
Dana has a unique gift as a child development specialist and educator. She’s terrrific with children, a good listener and patient.When working with our family, she helped us identify ways to assist in our children’s development by providing very specific and appropriate solutions. I would highly recommend her to any family looking for external support in early childhood development.Jen Charmatz
Dana worked with my son Matthew who is Autistic and non-verbal for two years in our home three times a week. Dana was able to engage with Matthew in ways many therapists have tried and failed. She finds a way to connect and then expands from there to to progressive skill building. A true master in working with special needs kids.”Siobhan Cashman
