When children have a developmental delay or disorder, autism, a learning disability, or another type of neurological or psychological condition, getting the appropriate type of therapy is extremely important. It can greatly improve your child’s social and academic life. However, therapy sessions alone are not enough. The techniques that the therapist uses needs to extend beyond the sessions. They need to be incorporated into the child’s daily life. In order for parents to help their children on a daily basis, they need work with the therapist order to learn the strategies necessary to do so. That’s why our Thornwood children’s therapy practice, Westchester Pediatric Center for Therapy offers a parent training program. While teaching them how to help their children is important, our parent training program is not just for parents. We believe that each person who is involved in our patient’s life plays an essential role in his or her progress. That’s why we work with everyone who works with the child (parents, caregivers, and other professionals), in order to maximize the child’s potential and to facilitate the treatment process.
