Nettie Becker has devoted her entire professional life to working with young people, first as a teacher and counselor of high school students, and for the past 20 years in the field of infant and early child care. She has designed, set up, and implemented a movement program of adaptive physical education at a school for special children and has worked as a child development consultant for day care programs in New York City. She has also taught parenting classes in the continuing education department at Molloy College in New York. She currently conducts workshops in child development and movement through play for parents and their children in community library programs in Nassau County, New York. She has also introduced a community program for the parents of infants to help them engage with their babies through motor, sensory, and emotional stimulation in their first year of life. Becker is a fellow emeritus in early childhood group therapy at the Child Development Center of the Jewish Board of Family and Children's Services and was part of the program's continuing education committee that served as a consulting group for child care professionals. She is the coauthor of A Comprehensive Guide for Caregivers in Day Care Settings (1999). Becker holds a master's degree in professional studies, majoring in dance/movement therapy that combined movement and psychology in the development of young children.
