Developmental delay is a deviation from the regular development of normative milestones during childhood. Early stimulation is a standardized and straightforward technique to support children with developmental delays (aged 0–3 years) in reaching basic motor skills, which are essential for the execution of everyday activities, such as playing, feeding and locomotion. In doing so, early stimulation reduces the chances of permanent motor impairment, thus allowing the child to live a more functional life. However, outcomes of this treatment depend heavily on the involvement of the family, who are required to continue the early stimulation activities at home on a daily basis. To empower and educate families to administer standardized early stimulation programs at home, we developed an electronic early stimulation program, which provides personalized guidance to parents to administer early stimulation; together with evidence-based clinical decision support to therapists in tailoring ESP to observed needs.
