  • Infant Autism Study

    I'm sure you've heard by now about the recent study done by researchers at the University of California regarding Autism and early intervention. Their study, called the ''Infant Start'' study, is showing that infants who are showing early signs of Autism had little to no developmental delays by the time they reached their 3rd birthday when ...

  • Equipment Resource Lists

    One of the most frustrating parts of my job is being able to get the items the families I work with need when insurance won't cover it or the family can't afford it. Sometimes families need pieces of equipment to help their child be more mobile. Other times it could be something as simple as a knob puzzle or a simple shape sorter to work on ...

  • Early Intervention – What Does it Mean and Who Can it Help?

    I have been working in Early Intervention for the past 10 years but I'm still surprised how many families have never heard that there is assistance for families whose children are experiencing developmental delays before they reach preschool. For those who may not know early Intervention is a part of the Individuals with Disabilities ...

  • Sensory Fun With Snow and Ice

     As COTA who works in Birth-to-Three a lot of my time is spent on driving to/from my visits. I love driving because I get to see so many cool things.  The other day when I was driving home I passed a church that had a sign in the front of their yard that read: ''Whomever is praying for snow please stop!''  I actually ...

  • Preventing “Bucket Babies”

    This past week I presented a workshop to a child care provider network. This insightful group of mentors and educators were passionate about finding ways to adapt the current programs in many of their centers to include more sensory motor concepts.  As we talked about the importance of vestibular input and how gentle swinging can provide ...

  • Tummy Time Revisited

    Tere Bowen Irish wrote a powerful guest editorial for Advance last week on the importance of tummy time that is well worth reading (or re-reading!).   Entitled Back to Sleep Tummy to Play  (Advance  8/1/12) she recaps some of the sobering statistics of the amount of time babies from birth to 2 now spend in a car seat (500 hours ...

  • Easy as 1... 2... 3...

    When you are asking a young child to do something they really don't want to do, whether it is eating or sensory or even a time out, they will often start to fidget and whine after just a few quick moments.  To a young child it is hard to tell the difference between 5 seconds and 5 minutes.  All they know is that you are asking them to do ...

  • Exception(s) to the Rule - "force feeding"

    I should learn by now that one should not ever say ''never'' because there is almost always an exception (or two) to a statement that uses the world ''never'' in it.  Such as I did in my last post. A OT who has had experience with individuals/young adults with eating disorders did share with me that there is actually a method that is used to ...

  • Do You Still Love Your Job?

    There is a saying that if you love what you do for your work then you will never work a day in your life.  I was asked recently if I still love my job and it didn't take long at all for me to answer with a heartfelt and resounding ''Yes!''  I am truly blessed when it comes to what I do for a living because I really do love my job.  ...

  • 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 ...
