USING VISUALS TO REDUCE CONFUSION AND FRUSTRATIONS, AND ENCOURAGE INDEPENDENCE

There are two sides to language. There is the understanding of what others say (receptive language) and there is what we say (expressive language)...We often see visual strategies such as picture symbols helping people to communicate both to represent their daily routines (receptive language), and/or to help them with the words they want to communicate (expressive language)...

ASSOCIATIVE PLAY

Why is it important?

Associative play is one step above parallel play and encourages use of language and increases communication skills, problem solving skills, and cooperation.

How to Encourage:

Insert yourself into children's parallel play and model and give play ideas, "Look Sally is playing cars! Let's play cars together. Beep beep! Crash!"

IS TOE WALKING PROBLEMATIC? OR WILL MY CHILD GROW OUT OF IT?

  • After the age of 2, if your child is still toe walking you should consult your Pediatrician.
  • Your child may grow out of it or they may not. Without intervention toe walking can become more difficult to correct.
  • Toe walking  can stem from poor sensory processing, but turn into structural shortness in the hip, calf, ankle, and foot.
  • Long lasting affects of toe walking can be joint problems and limitation with running and jumping.
