Babies are not born with a how-to manual, but this is what you have with Advance My Baby. You now can put into place the building blocks that lead to academic success, athletic prowess, emotional balance and social acceptance. For the first time, instruction is provided for the first 36 months of life that create the ultimate foundation for your baby. The greatest discoveries are often accidental and this manual is no different. Authors and occupational therapists, Jeanne Martin and Paula Tarver, were forced to come up with better systems to work with children after time constraints compromised the program in which they were operating. Their answer was to train the parents in something called Sensory Integration. Sensory integration relate to the brain s ability to interpret senses, organize them, and respond to the information for functional behavior. Our brain receives sensory messages and turns them into responses. This helps us orient ourselves to the world around us. Thousands of cases prove the merit of sensory integration intervention. Ms. Martin and Ms. Tarver watched their own success skyrocket as parents took an educated, active role in the sensory development of their children. After so many dramatic stories of transformation, and with parents asking why they had never before been shown these techniques, the two women believed it was their duty to take this message to the world. This manual you hold is designed to advance the baby of every caregiver. You are on the cusp of a trend to transform the world one baby at a time. The Advance My Baby manual can be used individually in the home. It can be used in small groups. Those with the ability to lead can do so in a larger setting in their community.
