A positive approach to a harrowing experience
Today, Teddy is a healthy little boy. Lingering effects from prematurity include Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), as well as sensory processing issues.
While he reacts strongly to loud sounds and some types of music, he also can play music by ear. He loves science, astronomy, reading, swimming, gymnastics, building with Legos, drawing, dancing, and Minecraft.
Nanine continues to be a believer in the benefits of Developmental Care. “There is a balance to be had in treating the whole child as opposed to treating the symptoms,” she notes. “Developmental Care really helped me get over the anxieties of having a baby in the NICU. It was a positive approach to a very harrowing experience."
