It's June and the weather is heating up. The kids are out of school. It's time for vacation, cookouts and a new Provider of the Month! This June, we chose a wonderful Occupational Therapist from Texas, Mary Pat Bragers. Mary has been working with children who have sensory integration issues and developmental delays for years, and we are happy to have her in our network. Check out her story here.
May is another big month. The weather has finally turned warm for most of the country, school is winding down and it's time to draw attention to some serious issues. This month is Better Speech and Hearing, Healthy Vision, Stroke Awareness, Huntington's Awareness, Mobility Awareness, Physical Fitness/Sports and Older Americans Month. Whoa! That's a lot. This month, we had to pick one to spotlight our wonderful Providers in that arena, and the winner was Healthy Vision. We work with a lot of amazing Optometrist, and Dr. Rakov is no different. She has been working with IM for years and was one of our first advocates for visual training. Check out all of the amazing work she does to help people overcome difficulty through vision therapy!
