The ideas presented on this blog are for informational purposes only and are not medical advice. A blog can never replace an individualized treatment plan developed as the result of in-person assessment, clinical observation, and collaboration between therapist, caregiver, and (if applicable) child. If you are concerned about the development or functional abilities of a particular child in your life, then that child’s parent should talk with his/her pediatrician or seek out the services of a developmental pediatrician or a local occupational therapist.
