A Parent's Perspective on the Explorer Mini: Promoting Exploration

Part 2 in our series about one family's experience with the Explorer Mini. See part 1.

Last week was the start of our series, focusing on the Explorer Mini with questions and answers from a parent/caregiver perspective in the form of video interviews. While last week's blog was all about first impressions of the Explorer Mini, this week we turn our focus on how the Explorer Mini promotes exploration. Click on the videos below to hear Mike's answer or read the transcript below that. All transcripts are edited for clarity.

A Parent's Perspective on the Explorer Mini: An Introduction

Part 1 in our series about one family's experience with the Explorer Mini.
When Mike and Sandy's daughter Sylvia was about three months old, she was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy type 1. Spinal muscular atrophy is a gradual decay of her motor neurons. They were told early on that mobility is a really important part of Sylvia's development, and so they wanted to start promoting that development as soon as possible. As Sylvia's brain and personality were quickly developing, Mike and Sandy wanted Sylvia to be enthusiastic about doing things herself. The Explorer Mini has been a big component to Sylvia's drive for her own independence.
