Most parents have heard about STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning. But did you know that STEM and language skills start with babies? We need to encourage this learning early on with our babies. There are certain things that we can do as parents to help.

Today, I’m chatting with Dr. Aimee Ketchum, a pediatric occupational therapist and owner of Aimee’s Babies, a child development company and the creator of STEM Starts Now, a digital subscription program for parents of young children to help with early childhood development and kindergarten readiness. She explains why it’s critical to promote STEM learning to our babies early in life and how to do it.
