April is National OT Month

Celebrate with us as we recognize our amazing team of Pediatric Occupational Therapists. Elite Therapy Center’s team of OTs and COTAs were voted #1 with Locals Love Us for 2019-2020. Get to know this special group by visiting our OT page. A kid’s occupation is to grow, learn, do schoolwork, and play. OT helps kids who have a physical, sensory, or cognitive disability. It helps them do everyday things like eating, putting on shoes and socks, focusing on learning, writing, and playing with toys and kids.

Elite Therapy Center STORYTIME

Elite Therapy Center STORYTIME

Listen as Maci McKown reads Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. Reading to your kids is a wonderful activity ANYTIME but especially during this time of shelter-in-place. Take your kids on adventures with pictures, sounds, and stories – even if you’ve read it a hundred times. It’s always a wonderful way to engage and connect while growing their skills in listening.
