Helping kids of all ages to live a more active life through FUNctional movement.
Soon we “fall back” and turn our clocks back one hour to mark the end of daylight savings time. I used to love this weekend – having one extra hour of sleep… but kids don’t always get the same message, and if you have early risers now, this could mean even earlier rising. How can you help your family through this change? You have a couple options and no matter which approach you take, you will make it through!
Your child’s registered physiotherapist or occupational therapist might ask you if you (or your child) would be ok to work with an OTA/PTA. The therapist would explain to you that they will still be making the plans, but the OTA/PTA will be the one to follow through with the therapy session and then would report back to the therapist. But, what is an OTA/PTA and why would you choose to work with them? Here are the basics to help you better understand this role and how they can be an integral part of your child’s therapy journey.
