What You Can Do to Help Your Child’s Development

Although your child is undergoing cancer treatment and may not feel energetic, it is still important to encourage movement, communication, and play as part of their daily routine. Here are some things you can do:

  • Make sure your child spends time on their tummy when they are awake.
  • Look at your child’s face and make eye contact.
  • Help your child play with their hands together (such as clapping).
  • Massage your child’s hands and feet.
  • Have your child play with toys that have sounds and lights.
