What Is a Parent's Role at Therapy?

Week after week, parents bring their children to our clinic. They walk in our doors, hand-in-hand with their children, and trust that when their child goes back to the treatment room the therapist knows best. It's important for parents to trust us, but it's even more important that the parent and the therapist are on the same page. It takes a coordinated effort by both to help a child reach his or her potential. 

In this month's featured blog post, Margaret  shares some thoughts from her heart regarding the partnership between parents and therapists,  how the roles of parents and therapists are different, and how we can support each other to help a child succeed.

Get to Know You: Alan Harding

We're adding a new feature to the Kid's Creek newsletter: Get to Know You ! We're asking our therapists a few questions to give our families a peek into who they are as people, not simply therapy providers. Occupational Therapist Alan Harding is our first subject.

 

Who is your hero? Batman, because he is a symbol of self-sacrifice

 

What is your proudest accomplishment?

Winning the Outdoor Division 1 State Track & Field Championship with only 8 teammates during my senior year of high school - plus I was team captain

 

Have you ever had a nickname? What is it?

Snowman, because I would never wear a jacket to track practice in cold weather

If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be?
Otter, because I am family/friend oriented and VERY playful


Now that you've learned some fun facts about Alan, feel free to check out his bio on our website.
