Your 6 to 9-month old is growing and developing skills every day. She knows her name, imitates sounds, and is likely rolling over by now. The following developmental milestone chart will give you a general idea of what do expect during these months.
The project above was completed by Master of Occupational Therapy students at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center and posted with permission.
FYI, my SPM co-authors have been developing the Sensory Processing Measure (SPM-2) across the life span from infants through adults. It has gone through our piloting phase and is now in data collection for standardization.
The Infants and Toddlers Forms include:
1. 4-9 mos
2. 10-30 mos
3. Caregiver (to complete on their own sensory preferences and challenges for comparing with the infant's,looking at "goodness of fit" and co-occupation.
I am developing the SPM Quick Tips for Infants. Perhaps you and/or your readers would like to share some tips you are using. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and bravo :-)
