Growing up and going through school with learning disabilities is no easy feat - regardless of how determined a person is. The key is to recognize the symptoms and address the issues. In Andrew's case - he just wanted to be a normal teenager, a goal that he was able to achieve through Interactive Metronome® training.
With the new year upon us, children have a lot going on. Between new classes, new teachers and cold, wet weather, the last thing any child needs is a cluttered play area. How frustrating! Check out these tips from Wendy Harron, IM Provider and a wonderful OT!
Feeling trapped in your house can make anyone go a little stir crazy, but avoid the urge to switch on the television to pass the time. If the cold weather and lack of sun saps your energy and has you climbing up the walls, take a deep breath and think about all of the resources at your fingertips. Create learning opportunities for your children with simple household items and motivate them to stay active. Pretty soon you will realize that you have always had everything you needed right there in your cabin.
This time of year really gets people thinking about toys. And while most people may be deciding between a Playstation 4 or Xbox One, neither system is the best decision children. Check out these helpful tips about toys that can actually teach while they entertain.

Children who have a Traumatic Brain Injury typically go through a course of rehabilitation. It seems that although there are clusters of similarities in these patients, there are rarely ever 2 that exhibit the exact same difficulties after their injury. I met a 7 year old who had fallen off of a truck, and had suffered a TBI. He required surgery to repair a hole in his skull from the fall. This little guy received OT, PT and speech for a year in an intensive program and did very well. One year post his accident, he was demonstrating great recovery in every area – walking with no support or braces, cognitively intact and able to complete 1st grade work without assistance, speaking clearly and without difficulty. His last resulting effect was a left hemiplegia. His left arm dangled from his side and was non functional. This was very frustrating to him and to his family.
