Children with cerebral palsy (CP) undergo intervention throughout their lives. They often receive physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy for many years in the home, school and clinic settings. Parents are often presented with lots of opinions as to therapy options, medical interventions like botox and baclofen, bracing options, and surgical procedures, such as selective dorsal rhizotomy and lengthening procedures.
Although it is a lot to navigate, parents, you need to know that you are the experts in your children, there is not doubt about that. Many parents will tell me that they feel like they are left to manage their child’s care in a world that speaks a different language that are all giving different opinions. This is not easy! That’s why when we provide care for our families, our goal is to help you manage the big picture and not only provide your child’s therapy. We’re here to support you, guide you, and connect you with resources every step of the way.
In the therapy world, there are so many different treatment approaches out there and often they are filled with big promises. This can add to the challenge of navigating the best care for your child. We know that you want the best for your child and we want to empower you to trust your gut, combined with learning as much as you can, to find the best match of services for your child.
TMR is a treatment approach that can be powerful for children with CP. Rather than tell you so, or even show you someone else’s child, I invite you to come in for a Discovery Visit at our practice to learn how TMR can help your child. TMR is integrated into our intensive therapy programs as well as our weekly sessions. It is an approach that is easily accessible for you to do at home in between sessions, which is a big piece of why it is so powerful- your repetition at home adds on to changes that are made in therapy sessions, stacking up to powerful changes in your child’s ability to breath, balance and move.
There is a reason families from around the world, from South Korea to Saudi Arabia, to throughout the United States, from NY, Virginia and Texas, have worked with us to learn how to use TMR to help their children breakthrough limits and open up new worlds of possibility.
Whether you’re curious or skeptical, we want to talk to you and share with you the future of pediatric therapy with children with CP and other movement disorders! Email us anytime at email@example.com or call/text us at 908-543-4390.
