Alaska native, Sarah McCloud celebrates her first year at Imua in less than a week! A Doctor of Physical Therapy, her 7 year academic career would eventually land her on Maui. We sat down with the quite but informatively lethal DPT to chat about her favorite therapy tools and words of wisdom.
Favorite Toy to use in therapy?
I would say the Therapy Ball. It’s used for vestibular stimulation and balance reaction, core strength and tummy time. For older children a smaller ball will help to ensure that their feet are planted on the grown when doing these exercises.
Words of Wisdom?
Give your child the opportunity to fail and LEARN from it. Give your child the opportunity to move to get what they want instead of just pointing to what they want.
