Triad HITCH-UP Meeting Highlights 10/30/07

GUEST SPEAKER: Beth Whitfield, M. Ed, CASTLE Program Coordinator
TOPIC: Parenting an HI child: Behavior, therapy, and balancing it all.

This past week Beth came and spoke about parenting an HI child with AV therapy and how to incorporate therapy into different segments of your life other than your traditional "table time". Using those 5 minutes of short attention spans while your are cooking, reading, playing, waiting for dinner at a restaurant, brushing teeth, or whenever you can do 1 quick activity. Also remembering that therapy needs to remain fun and exciting for both the parents and children; keep it silly and fun and the kids forget you are "doing therapy" and learn more meaningfully. Thanks to Beth for her time and wonderful presentation!!!
