Child Development: The First 12 Months

Taught by Ellie Wheeler

This class aims to help you understand how your child is growing, developing and learning during the first year of their life so that you can make informed parenting decisions and choose parenting strategies or approaches that are right for both you and your baby. 

Topics covered will include:

  • Stages of cognitive and emotional development

  • Developmental milestones and understanding them in a broader context

  • Sleep development, stages and issues

  • The role of attachment including soothing and self soothing

This class is approximately 2 hours long.

About the classes

Each class is very informal in nature. These classes are not intended as psychological therapy but rather they are providing information on general issues, self help strategies and sign posting for where people can get psychological support if needed.
