Each year, over 400,000 babies born in the United States are at risk of having sensory, communication, feeding, fine and gross motor delays. Early delays are delays in children’s ability to meet critical developmental milestones in the first months and years of life-how well and soon they move and interact with their environment. A wide range of conditions may cause delays in these functions. Regardless of the underlying condition, experts agree therapy significantly improves outcomes in children with early delays.
Pathways Awareness is uniquely dedicated to increasing knowledge about the gift of early detection and the benefit of early therapy for infants and children with early delays. We honor and support their parents by providing knowledge, information, and a sense of community as they guide their children on life’s journey.
