Anxious feelings in children can be presented in many different ways. As caregivers, we want to teach kids to identify these emotions and express them in safe and appropriate ways. Occupational therapy can also help teach children to navigate these big feelings through emotional regulation techniques. #anxiety #minimittenpediatrictherapy #helpisoutthere

It's time for the MMPT CHAMP OF THE WEEK!
Little Miss G came to Mini Mitten with poor milk transfer, poor weight gain, frequent coughing / choking during feeding, painful latch. Miss Casey & G's family worked hard to help with all of these feeding obstacles. G made significant progress with her range of motion, coordination, and strength of trunk, neck, and oral motor skills. She improved with feeding at breast and bottle, and she will continue making progress through home exercise program with Mom & Dad! Congrats to another graduate as well! #minimittenchampionoftheweek #minimittenchamp #minimittenpediatrictherapy

Blowing bubbles is a great activity for you and your child. Blow bubbles to work on oral motor skills such as lip rounding. Try using the phrase "ready, set, ____ GO!" to elicit speech. Model the word "POP" while popping each bubble for more speech production.

Our Mini Mitten Champ may be a day late this week, since we are also welcoming fall, but that doesn't mean a thing! Gage came to Derrick and PT with hip pain and muscle weakness, he left with confidence and strength. Derrick did an awesome job making Gage's therapy creative and play based, he also encouraged Gage a lot regarding his home exercise plan, and with Derricks help, Gage graduated back in August! Gage was our first graduate to trace & write his own hand and name on the wall. #minimittenchampionoftheweek #gage #mmptchamp #minimittenpediatrictherapy

Here's a PRO TIP from our OT Department
Try using tweezers or tongs from home to sort objects by number or by color. We have a sheet here for your to try, or you can make your own. You can use anything round, maybe try something your kiddo loves, such as pom poms, rocks or cheerios. This really helps build those coordination and fine motor skills! If the tweezers or tongs are too hard, try using their fingers.

Pro Tip from our speech therapist, Charisse!
Reading a book to your child is great for literacy awareness, establishing a routine, and building vocabulary. Some tips while reading include: Read words with excitement and Animation, Use repetitive phrase books like “Brown Bear, What do you See?” Or “Moo Baa LaLaLa” Ask questions during the story like "what does a cow say?” Speech therapists use books to target new vocabulary words, follow directions, and lengthen the child’s phrases.

Pro Tip from Kristi, our Registered Dietitian. To improve picky eating let your kids play with their food! The more they are exposed to the food the more comfortable they become with it. Let them use their hands, play with, and smell the food. Eventually it will make it to their mouth! You can also get fun plates and utensils to encourage your child to want to try new foods. The more exposure the better!
