  • An Interesting Study on Toe Walking

    As OTs (and certainly our pediatric PT colleagues) we have all seen our share of kids that are toe walking with no history of any apparent medical disorder that would account for the problem such as CP or sequelae from a TBI. Termed Idiopathic Toe Walking (ITW) it seems there is some emerging research that suggests what many therapists have ...

  • Tis the season ... to get overwhelmed...

    ''and the stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there ... ''  I can't believe that Christmas is just a few days away.  I'm actually a little more ahead this year than I thought I would be.  I have a good number of packages wrapped and under the tree and just a couple of things left ...

  • Tuesday Tidbit - Nuk brush 2 ~ local sightings ~

    In an earlier blog post I had spoken about the usefulness of the Nuk Brush and listed several places that sell it.  The sites I listed were therapy sites as that was the only place I have been able to find them.  Until now, that is.  Last Friday I was in a local Toys R Us store, browsing the aisles on my way to the play-doh ...

  • Snow - not just an outdoor sensory experience...

    I was working with a kiddo at a daycare a couple weeks ago after we had a substancial snowfall.  The kids were all excited about the snow but it was too cold to go outside and play.  The daycare provider grabbed two medium sized, see through tupperware containers and went outside.  She came back a few moments later with them ...

  • Sensory Overload & Santa

    Recently I received an email from one of the families I work with who has a young 3yr old child who has sensory integration challenges.  This wee one gets overloaded very easily when it comes to new people or new places or new anything.  Mom and Dad thought it would be nice this past weekend to take the kids to meet and have pictures ...

  • Shopping for children with special needs ...

    Hi all!   How is everyone doing with their holiday shopping?  I was out today for the first time and was able to at least get a small dent in what I will need for family & friends. I have to admit, even for me without too many major sensory issues, it was a bit over whelming - the crowds, the loud music, ...

  • Feeding Difficulties - Ability vs Motivation

    One of the most challenging things when it comes to working with a family who has a child who ''won't eat'' is figuring out how much of it may be due to the child's inability to eat (sensory problems, physical problems, processing disorders, etc) and how much may be due to the child's lack of motivation to eat.  The former is much easier to ...

  • Tuesday Tidbit - Olfactory defensive behaviors

    Hi All!  Sorry I did not post on Friday – I was a bit under the weather with a stomach bug.  Thankfully it didn’t last more than 48 hours but that is one of the “hazards” of working with children for a living – you are bound to catch something every now and again, no matter how hard you try. J I wanted this Tuesday’s Tidbit to be a ...

  • Tuesday Tidbit - The Spit Cup

    When it comes to picky eaters one of the biggest challenges we have as therapists is getting the child to even taste something.  There is, of course, an entire protocol to getting a sensory defensive child to allow food to be 1) in the room, 2) on the table, 3) on their plate, 4) on their spoon/fork, 5) near their mouth, 6) in their ...

  • Rain, Rain ... go out and play ..

    It's been raining here for the past couple of days.  Yesterday was a cold rain but today it was warmer and more of a drizzle.  I have been off on vacation in the Lancaster, PA area with my sister and mom.  We've been exploring, shopping and just having a fun time enjoying each other's company.  It's been a pleasant change but ...
