Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss (March 2nd)
Dr. Seuss's birthday is celebrated on March 2 and it celebrates both the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel and the National Education Association to endorse the importance of reading.
Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month
March is recognized as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month since 1987 when President Ronald Reagan issued a public proclamation urging Americans to provide individuals with developmental disabilities “the encouragement and opportunities they need to lead productive lives and to achieve their full potential.”
Estimates in the United States show that about one in six, or about 17%, of children aged 3 through 17 years have a one or more developmental disabilities. Language and speech problems are the most common type of developmental delays.
The countries with the highest number of children with developmental disabilities include Thailand, Bangladesh and Iraq.
We offer Developmental Play Coaching based on the evidence-based early intervention programs. Our trained therapeutic coaches work with parents/guardians and their child to reach goals established through conducting assessments and gathering input by the caregiver. Therapeutic coaches guide parents in creative play and learning experiences to help their child learn techniques to manage barriers to their development. Therapeutic play activities can include songs, building figures, matching items, manipulating objects, games, and more, all while incorporating the child’s needs along the way. You will not even realize you are in a therapeutic session because you will be having so much fun with your child!
