Events and Activities

One of the goals at Therapediatrics is to look at helping the whole child. Clinical therapy is always beneficial but there are additional activities that when combined with traditional therapy can help children increase their confidence and reach their potential.

NEW CLASSES ARE STARTING SOON!

Family Yoga at Castle Park

Date: Thursday June 7, 2018

Time: 10 a.m.

Between school, work and home the balance between our physical and emotional lives can be lost and we can have difficulty regulating stress.  Yoga gives children the opportunity to build confidence, feel a sense of community as well as regulate their stress response system.

We are excited to have Nadia Alvarez, Occupational Therapist and Certified Yoga instructor will conduct a family yoga class for us at Castle Park in Vernon Hills. All families with children in the community are welcome to join us for a 45 minute class. Therapediatrics will have some mats available, but families are encouraged to bring their own yoga mats or towels to the class. Please check out our facebook page if location changes due to weather.
