Monthly Topic – August 2015: Article Alert

CPT is always looking for ways to improve our services. Last year we began providing Monthly Topics on our website (http://centerforpediatrictherapy.com/whats-trending/monthly-topic/).   These topics were designed to help families manage life events (e.g., long car trips, getting a haircut, indoor games for snowy days).

In our effort to support children with specialized therapeutic needs, their families, and the team of people involved in their care, CPT is pleased to announce our Article Alert Series. We will do the search for helpful articles, get permission to share the article with our families, and post for your use.

This month, August 2015, the chosen article was written by teachers for teachers on how to get ready for a child with sensory difficulties. In this article, the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) offers suggestions for the classroom teacher. We would encourage you to share the article with your child’s teacher. If the teacher has any questions related to your child’s specific difficulties, simply have the teacher call the office to speak with your child’s therapist – and don’t forget to sign the permission form for your therapist to speak with the teacher!
