Ameera's Therapy To Go

Although the weather is getting colder, and fall is in full swing, there are still many things to look forward to for you and your child (even with covid restrictions). Halloween was a chance for families to get creative and celebrate in a socially distant, unique way.


With Halloween season being over, there are still the rest of the holidays to look forward to. It might feel disheartening that we are still at home, with no exact idea of when things will get back to, "normal," there are still many ways to honor and celebrate your favorite holidays at home.


A fun activity for the fall is to assess your child's goals by making a tree with changing leaves. Have your child draw a tree. On the tree have them draw several leaves of different colors. Have each color represent a goal achieved, and goal they would like to achieve. This will give you an opportunity to talk with your child about setting goals, and how to achieve them.


Football feelings- in honor of football season, have your child dance to their favorite "feelings songs" when the song is paused have them do a touchdown dance to represent a feeling, and try to guess which feeling that is. Take turns, and talk about when you might see/feel these feelings. This will open up a dialogue on feelings and when they are appropriate.


Change is tough for anyone to go through. Consider having your child join one of our online remote groups to keep them busy, and engaged in their free time at home. We have a range of groups for different ages/genders/interests. Joining these groups can allow your child to interact with our kids, and get a chance to socialize in a productive manner.


Additionally, we do offer individual sessions for you or your child with one of our licensed therapists.


As things continue to change, allow us to help ease you into all the changes. Give us a call and get started in one of our groups or with an individual session. We are here for you! Stay tuned for more tips and ways to make this period easier for you and your family.
