A Step Ahead and DSAGC will assist Hispanic families who have children with Down syndrome

Cincinnati, OH – October 24, 2011 – A Step Ahead Pediatric Therapy, a comprehensive pediatric rehabilitation practice based in Northern Kentucky, is teaming up with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati to host an informational seminar for Hispanic families who have children with Down Syndrome.

The seminar, which is scheduled for October 29th from 10:00am – 11:30am at the A Step Ahead office inCrestview Hills,KY, will offer Hispanic families the opportunity to gain expertise from pediatric therapists on how to better help and teach their children on a day-to-day basis. 

“The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati is grateful to partner with A Step Ahead to provide an educational program for our Hispanic families,” says Sally K. Tilow, outreach coordinator for the DSAGC. “A Step Ahead offers our families the opportunity to learn strategies and techniques to promote their child’s development from a variety of knowledgeable therapists in a warm, friendly atmosphere.  We couldn’t be happier with the collaboration.”

Pediatric physical and occupational therapists from A Step Ahead will provide information on motor challenges that children with Down Syndrome typically face. The staff will also discuss some of the more common treatment strategies that they can incorporate into their daily routines, positions and activities to avoid, and how to continue early intervention. A translator will be present for the entire seminar to offer the utmost understanding of the information.

 “Every child develops at their own pace, regardless of disability, and these children are no different.” says Daniel Cross, president and managing partner at A Step Ahead. “Our goal is to give these parents some helpful tips and advice that they can use immediately in their child’s development.”

The A Step Ahead staff will be available during the seminar for one-on-one Q & A and a supervised area with games and snacks will be provided for the kids.  The translator will also assist with individual questions from the families.

Fun With Therapy

This is a great article and pictures from a clinic in New York City.  They are very similiar to our practice.

http://physical-therapy.advanceweb.com/Multimedia/Photo-Gallery/Fun-With-Therapy.aspx

 

At Watch Me Grow, a pediatric therapy center in New York City, physical and occupational therapists work with young patients with sensory processing disorders.

Sensory integration is the ability to use the senses to take in information, put it together with prior knowledge and memories, and create meaningful responses. Children who have sensory processing disorders don’t put all the pieces together correctly, impacting their motor and/or behavioral output.

Activities such as swings, ball pits and balance beams help children to engage their vestibular systems, strengthen their core muscles and coordinate their trunk control. Take a look at some of the fun ways therapists and patients combat sensory processing disorders.

For more on sensory processing, read “Through Their Eyes.”
