The Children Love Hanging Around

With Ms. Courtney!

What do you love most about your job in our pediatric setting?
Every day I have the opportunity to help children build their confidence and encourage families!
What have learned working as a therapist that you didn't learn in college?
Obstacle courses are not only fun, but extremely therapeutic!
What advice do you most often give to parents?
When working with children with poor sensory processing, the most important first step is for parents to first understand their own sensory preferences.
What is the funniest thing you've heard a child say?
After really thinking hard for several minutes, I had a little boy tell me with all sincerity, that the body part between your wrist and shoulder (arm) is your “elbow grease.”
Community recommendations?
Inner peaks climbing gym is a great place for families to go if they want to get in a really good sensory diet. Not only is climbing great heavy work, but it is a fun way to work on motor planning J
Ms. Courtney is also a yoga instructor and teaches early morning classes
at the Y!
Happy OT Month, Courtney!
