What This Isn’t
Although I am a physical therapist, this is NOT a place for skilled therapeutic intervention. The ideas presented on this website and in products/resources are for informational/educational purposes only and are not medical advice. A website can never replace an individualized treatment plan developed as the result of assessment, clinical observation, and collaboration between therapist, caregiver, and (if applicable) child. If you are concerned about the development or functional abilities of a particular child in your life, then that child’s parent should talk with the pediatrician or their therapist.
