You suspect your child will need speech therapy, but when should you start it? Or you’re worried your child has some other developmental concern?
Get your questions answered at the Children’s Resource Fair, 5-7 pm Thurs. April 3 @ Children’s Therapy Center, 11550 Abercorn St. (behind Checker’s near Mercy Boulevard). Refreshments will be served. Physicians, teachers and parents are invited.
Experienced speech, occupational and physical therapists will be available to answer questions about how to help children with developmental concerns or neurological disorders and how to tap into the resources available to them. They can also help explain insurance eligibility and available funding sources.
Find out more about therapeutic activities that interest children and make motor development more fun and exciting. Therapists will provide written information on programs available through Children’s Therapy Center such as biking and aquatic therapy. They will also demonstrate the Interactive Metronome, a brain-based rehabilitation assessment and training program that develops and improves the processing ability that affects attention, motor planning and sequencing and strengthens motor skills.
So if you have a child with developmental concerns, take time to attend this event or send a friend in your place to find out what local resources are available. Because we all know the importance of early intervention when it comes to helping kids.
