Some helpful videos - please ensure you seek medical advice from your GPWe are delighted to share 12 films made by Movimento Down, Brazil, which show activities for babies and toddlers guided by physiotherapist Alexandra Wakahara. The short films describe activities and supports for children from birth to 3 months, 6 to 9 months, 9 to 12 months and for children older than 12 months.We recommend parents discuss any of the activities shown with their child’s physiotherapist before undertaking them, so they know they are right for their child.
