Hello! I am Heather Batman, MS, OT, BCP, CNT, NTMTC. I am an advanced board-certified pediatric and neonatal occupational therapist in historic Houston Heights, TX, with 20 years of expertise in feeding, swallowing, and developmental skills focusing on premature infants, NICU graduates, and newborns through 5 years. I believe every baby has unlimited potential, and every parent knows their child the best. I combine your goals, best practices, and creative ideas to meet your baby's individual needs. I support families through their personal journeys. I share my experience and expertise while removing confusing, conflicting, and unsolicited advice. I can't wait to meet you and walk beside you on your journey as we guide your baby to thrive beyond five.
