This Month's Featured Blog:

Hand flapping may be one of the most well-known & talked about “stims” when it comes to children so parents who see their child flap their hands may grow concerned..


The truth is that hand flapping is a fairly common behavior in toddlers. It can be seen to especially occur when they get excited, anxious or even upset. In typically developing children it is a result of having a large overflow of emotion that has to be expressed and when they don’t know what to do with all that emotion it can come out as a body movement such as hand flapping. Most toddlers will outgrow this by their 2nd or 3rd birthday as they become better at controlling unexpected emotions..

Therapy Tree Tips:

How "Toy Cars" can be Beneficial in Therapy

"Toy cars or toy airplanes are great for prepositions or spacial concepts. You can tell your child to drive a car "on the table" or "on the couch" or "under the couch." That way they get to see and use those concepts in a concrete way."

— Matt, SLPA | Glendale Clinic.

Every two weeks we have a therapist or special guest read a children's book and post it on our Youtube channel. Did you know reading books to your children or them listening to a book reading improves their listening skills? The experts at Scholastic explain that listening is a skill kids must acquire before they can read themselves. They suggest that books on tape are a great addition to reading one-on-one with your child. These often provide entertainment value, too, like silly voices, music, and other embellishments. Every month we give away five of our Storytime books to a patient and each reader signs each book with a loving and special message. Make sure to subscribe to our Youtube Channel to stay alerted on our latest video!
