In Infancy

DSC01094

Visual Perception begins in Infancy.

Making sure the infant is comfortable with touch is import.  This way, as the baby grows touch exploration will occur naturally and spontaneously.

Make sure the infant is strengthening trunk muscles.  This is important so the baby will be able to move comfortably around the environment.   Crawling, rolling, scooting, cruising all give valuable information about the space inhabited and the objects seen.

Move interesting objects in front of the infant’s visual field.  Watch as the baby follows the object with the eyes.
