Mother and Earth Baby Boutique has partnered with Sheila Hartley of Early Autism Services to provide caregivers with research based and developmentally appropriate tips to encourage communication, independence, and creativity in play and daily living skills for young children of all abilities in our local communities. Sheila is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and manages the Lansing region team for Early Autism Services (EAS). EAS is a Chicago based BHCOE accredited provider of applied behavior analysis therapy for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Sheila is a former preschool teacher and currently pursuing her doctorate degree in early childhood education. We are thrilled to expand our communication and interaction with our community of parents and children through this collaboration!
This will be the first of a series of Shelia highlighting the Developmental Value that certain toys and play can have.
The first spotlight is on the Mobi Zippee- one of our favorites!
