The First Five

The average child's brain develops at an accelerated rate the first years of life. 90% of brain development occurs by age 5. A child goes from being a completely dependent infant, to a completely independent little personality.  It's no wonder why some kids may need additional help staying on track developmentally.  Whether its assistance with feeding and swallowing, or language development (speech therapy), dressing, handwriting, or self-feeding (occupational therapy), or walking, balance, or strengthening (physical therapy), Viva is here to help.  Check out the following website for some great developmental activities to do with your child.
