How STEM Learning Starts at Birth

All of us parents have heard about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning, but did you know that STEM and language skills start with babies? It's essential for us to encourage this type of learning early on with our babies and there are certain things that we can do as parents. Today, I'm chatting with Dr. Aimee Ketchum, a pediatric occupational therapist and owner of Aimee’s Babies, a child development company, as well as the creator of STEM Starts Now, a digital subscription program for parents of young children to help with early child development and kindergarten readiness. She is explaining to us why it's critical for us to promote STEM learning to our babies early in life and how to do that.
