|Helmet Therapy to help children
(c) The Writing Well
Expatica published an article of mine written about a topic which will be unfamiliar to most – helmet therapy – but it is a process we stumbled upon last year when the Consultatiebureau (the Dutch well-baby clinic) referred us through to a physiotherapist because my baby had a strong positional preference.
I found it very hard to find much information on helmet therapy (or redressietherapie) in the Netherlands, particularly in English, so I decided to share our story for other expat parents out there.
It is also to enlighten others who wonder why babies with specially designed helmets is such a common sight on the streets of the Netherlands these days.
