The parent's guide is designed to support you in caring for your infant with CMT or flat head syndrome.

Written by Dr. Phillips-Williams, an experienced pediatrician, the guide highlights the organization’s ongoing public awareness campaign about symptoms and treatment methods for CMT.

Support For Your Family

Statistics from Boston Children’s Hospital show that CMT is relatively common, affecting around 1 in every 300 births, and - while often benign - can be a sign of more serious health issues. To help you provide the best level of care and attention for your child, the guide from the team at Community Health and Education Services provides information to support your family.

“Our comprehensive and empowering guide is crafted for parents facing the challenges of CMT," explains a spokesperson. “This transformative resource is structured in sixteen chapters, each strategically designed to provide knowledge, support, and practical strategies for the unique journey of each child.”

A Holistic Approach

Chapter topics include advanced medical interventions, surgical options for treating CMT, and the way in which CMT can be linked to Sandifer Syndrome. Dr. Phillips-Williams emphasizes a holistic approach, in which all aspects of your child are considered.

You'll also learn about practical aspects, including possible orthotics, repositioning programs to help adjust your child’s posture, and hands-on ways to promote physical development.

Finally, the guide also outlines the various forms of torticollis, including benign paroxysmal torticollis and ocular torticollis, to help you be prepared for any challenges you may encounter. You'll learn more about the importance of personalized care plans, which account for your child’s physiology and unique needs.

The parental guidebook can be ordered online for $20. One satisfied parent says, “This is a great roadmap and gave our family clarity and direction in navigating our journey with CMT. It is a valuable resource and helped us understand the condition, explore treatment options, and implement practical strategies for treating our son’s condition and helping him develop healthily.”
