Since the child has good receptive language, he is included in group play and singing sessions to encourage his expressive language.
The mother is taught the correct position to feed the child, to facilitate his swallowing reflex.
She is also trained to carry the child with the correct posture so that the adduction in the legs is reduced.
A lot of visual, auditory and tactile stimuli are given to the child to enhance his senses.
