As we know, it’s nothing short of miraculous when we manage to carve out time for physical, occupational, speech, behavioral, or other therapies in addition to everything else that goes on in a day. So take heart! Our research team has found a wealth of online materials put together by therapists, artists, parents, app-makers, cookie-bakers, and all-around creative people that offer exercises, videos, and fun activities across a variety of platforms. In Part Two, we’re focusing on websites, apps, and articles to help incorporate physical activity into your daily routine. Be sure to check out Part One: Occupational Therapy and Part Three: Behavioral Therapy, too!
