    Elizabeth Agrapidis is an accomplished pediatric physical therapist, teacher, author, toy inventor, NDT certified practitioner, wife, and a mom of two.

    She is putting many of the puzzle pieces of whole baby development together for nannies, caregivers, moms, and professionals like you from the convenience of your home and through specially offered seminars.

    She is building an active community to support children and families by optimizing a baby’s movement patterns and development before anything becomes a problem or affects their future. Her growing movement is called AbiliFit Baby Development Specialists and The Develop Connect Nurture Certificate Program!

    Her goal is to promote Ability of the body, mind, and spirit for professionals, babies, and their families.

    As a PE teacher, adaptive PE teacher for children with special needs, and a pediatric physical therapist, she noticed that there was a gap in support for moms, and she wanted to help caregivers with children’s physical, mental, and emotional development from that point on in her journey.

    She now takes that knowledge, and practical experience and provides hands-on developmental strategies through coaching and workshops to help caregivers bond with their baby in ways they never knew were possible that will carry on with the baby for the rest of their lives.
