If you are finding yourself on this path or if your occupational therapist has recommended strategies and you want additional information, please join us for our next FREE parent seminar entitled: Sensory Tools on May 1st at 7:30pm. This seminar will provide information on a variety of sensory tools and will provide answers to the Why? How? When? questions you may have.

April is OT Month

Posted By: Carrie Salyer on Apr 10, 2014   Category: Articles, Events, What's New  

Some people may wonder “Why would a child need occupational therapy? Kids do not have jobs.” A child actually has many jobs throughout his day, including: playing, interacting with peers and adults, following directions, sitting down and paying attention, completing school work, completing self-help tasks (bathing, dressing, eating, managing belongings), engaging in fine motor and gross motor activities, and regulating emotions. When a child has a challenge in one or more of these areas, then he may benefit from occupational therapy. At Leaps and Bounds, we assess a child to determine the underlying causes of the challenges and we provide fun, play-based therapy to improve skills. Please refer to our Development Checklist (Does My Child Need Help?) or call our office for a free consultation if you have concerns about your child.

Look Who’s Talking at Home!

Posted By: Leaps & Bounds on Jan 31, 2014   Category: Articles, Events, Resources, What's New  

Do you ever compare your child’s speech development to his peers? Do you wonder if he is on target? Have you ever been told to just “wait and see” and not to worry about her speech and language development until she is older? Do you know that using sippy cups can have a negative effect on your child’s oral motor skill development, which can impact feeding and speech skills? As a parent with a young child, you are likely constantly looking at how your child’s speech is developing and become worried if he is not talking like other children his age. There is a large range of “normal development” in the area of speech and language development, and within that range there are milestones that are expected to be reached at a certain age.

If you are looking for ways to encourage speech and language development in your home, please join us for our next FREE parent seminar on February 6th at 7:30pm. You will learn the top 10 things your speech language pathologist wants you to know to encourage speech and language development in your home! Please reserve your spot by calling the office at 636-928-LEAP (5327) or email us at info@LeapsAndBoundsKids.com.


Positive Behavior Management

Posted By: Leaps & Bounds on Jan 13, 2014   Category: Articles, Events, Resources, What's New  

The holidays and snow days may have given you a lot of time at home with your children. After having many days at home, did you find it challenging to find ways to redirect negative behaviors? Children display behaviors for many reasons, and it is important to determine the cause of an undesirable behavior. Understanding why your child is acting out can influence how you react, and having many “tools” in your belt to direct your child can change the course of an interaction. Using some simple, positive strategies can alter your child’s response to a situation, and help you to feel successful with managing negative behaviors.

If you are looking for positive ways to influence your child’s behaviors, please join us for our next FREE parent seminar THIS Thursday, January 16th at 7:30pm.
