Improving our knowledge of each child's Individual Differences, helps us to understand the child's unique experience within their bodies and their perception of their world. These differences may be in the following areas, Motor function Sensory processing Environment factors Health factors Family factors, including attachment Relationship-Based - The warm, loving interactions between the child and their caregivers are at the core of the Model. The child develops an understanding of themselves and the world through long chains of back and forth interactions with their caregivers.
