WELCOME to resources that can help you raise, or work with, great children! As a pediatric Occupational Therapist I work with children who have special needs, but every child needs guidance and support to grow into a healthy adult. I am always writing new handouts to help the parents I see at work and I often come across other information that might be useful. It seems like a good idea to put some of these resources all in one place so others can access them easily. Information is power and I like to empower parents, teachers, counsellors, and therapists as they help our kids to grow and thrive.
So if you have a child who is dealing with ADHD, Autism, sensory processing problems, anxiety, anger issues, poor social skills, difficulty with gross motor skills or fine motor skills, or trouble keeping up in school, you will find some answers here. This is a work in progress, so there will be pages added as we go along. If you have a question that is not addressed here yet, please contact me.
I have added a link to the clinic where I work, Pediatric Therapy Services in Gresham, Oregon, because that also has lots of helpful information.
I’m happy to announce the book I wrote to help children prepare for kindergarten and learn the social skills they need for life has arrived! ABC Ready for School is available on Amazon or at the publisher, Free Spirit.
Maybe, as an adult, you are wondering if you have sensory processing issues, ADHD, or autism? There are ways to find out and resources for you, too, in adults section.
