Summer 2017

Bike Riding Lessons

Learning to ride a bike is an important milestone for a child to meet. Most children learn to ride a bike between the ages of 3-8 years with the average being 5 years. Children with decreased coordination may have difficulty learning to ride a bike on their own. Our highly trained occupational therapists will be offering bike riding lessons this summer. They will teach your child how to ride a bike with proper technique and form, with the highest level of safety skills. Call our office to enroll your child today! 

Does your child need PT?
Your child might benefit from PT if they:
  • Have poor coordination: if they fall often, trip or run into objects frequently
  • Have increased muscle tone or decreased muscle tone
  • Demonstrate poor balance
  • Have delayed gross motor skills development
  • Have poor trunk strength: seem to slouch or "W" sit frequently, have trouble staying in a chair or sitting upright on the floor

Social Group

We offer a variety of social groups (ages 2 years-18 years), guaranteeing there will be one to meet all of your child's needs.  Children will learn techniques for improving their social skills within the group setting, while also putting these techniques to work through role-play, modeling, and forming friendships within the group. Call our office at 901-328-2110 to enroll your child or to find out more information about each group.

Our school readiness group helps children ages 5-8 years improve their academic, language and/or social skills. This group will meet on Mondays & Fridays from 12:30 to 3:30pm all summer long. Contact our office for enrollment and more details!

Summer Sensory Play

Digging for Spaghetti Worms in dirt  is a simple  sensory activity  that only takes a few moments to set up.  It's exciting, it's messy and the kids will have so much fun catching all the slippery and slimy spaghetti worms with tweezers and putting them into a jar.

You will need:
  • slightly wet sand/soil from the garden
  • a large container or tray and cooked spaghetti (left overs are great!)
  • tweezers for the added fun and development of fine motor skills but this is optional.
Let's play:
  • Slightly hide the spaghetti worms on the top layer of the sand/soil because too much sand/soil can be too heavy and may break the worms as they are being dug out.
