Putting Therapy Into Practice

Sit down with your child and make a summer calendar.  Discuss what you will do, where you will go, who you will see.  Find a picture that represents the activity (i.e. a photograph of Grandma and Grandpa when you are going to visit the grandparents) and place it on the calendar. After the activity occurs, discuss what you did, where you went, who you saw.

Birthday Party Fun

Summer brings us more time to play at home and when coming up with engaging pretend play activities, birthday party scenarios take the cake. Use stuffed animals as guests, paper goods from around the house, and a prefabricated wooden cake set. If you don’t have a cake set, substituting items such as Playdough and Legos for cake, topping, and candles works well.   Ideas to incorporate these skills are as follows:IMG_1234 (2)
