What To Expect At Your First Appointment
The first time your child comes into the clinic, our therapists will spend time getting to know your child, understanding their specific needs, and establishing the best approach for their therapy.
This session involves more than just simple play. Play is a proven effective method in children’s therapy and our therapists use it as a tool to motivate your child and enhance their learning process. We’ll also provide handouts and additional information to help you understand the concepts and carryover these tools at home.
What To Expect From Our Team
Reassurance For Parents
Don’t hesitate to ask questions about your child’s treatment plan or about physical therapy in general. Here are some questions you might consider:
- How will the treatment happen over the next few months?
- What exactly is physical therapy for children and how will it benefit my child?
Supporting Your Child at Home
Patience and creating a safe, healthy environment at home is key. Understand the challenges your child is facing and provide them with the necessary support. Regularly communicate with your child and encourage them to express their feelings about therapy. If you need extra resources, feel free to view our blog
