Event: Weighted Blanket Workshop

Learn the benefits of weighted blankets, how to use them, and make one yourself! Kaitlin Alvey MS,OTR/L, TheraTree Clinical Manager and Occupational Therapist, leads this hybrid in-person and virtual workshop. 

A weighted blanket is similar to a regular blanket, but has small weighted material inside it. The blanket is a little heavy and applies a firm consistent pressure to the body.   This input provides an organizing effect to the central nervous system and stimulate the release of neurotransmitters. This can be very calming and relaxing in general. It’s also why weighted blankets can also be used to relax at any time, not just for sleep.

Speech Therapy

Talking, Understanding, & More! 

On the surface level, the process of communicating seems very simple. However, it is actually a very complex process. Breakdowns can happen at many levels. When breakdowns happen, a child may have difficulty developing age appropriate speech or language skills. Often this causes children frustration and even sadness when they are not understood. 


Speech Therapy can help children meet their age appropriate goals in the following areas: 

  • Sound Production 
  • Language
  • Social Communication
  • Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC)
  • Fluency
  • Hearing/ Aural Rehabilitation 
  • Cognitive
  • Voice
  • Swallowing and Feeding

Occupational Therapy 

Skills for Everyday Life!

In its simplest terms, occupational therapy providers help people over come the barriers of participating in the things they want and need to do in life through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). They look at what's the thing they need to do (self care skills, social skills, participation in school etc.) and what's keeping them from that (attention, sensory integration, motor skills etc). Treatment addresses both the underlying challenge and the functional skill. 


Here are a few signs your child could benefit from Occupational Therapy:

  • Easily Distracted
  • Overly Sensitive to Touch, Movement, Sounds or Sights
  • Clumsy / Uncoordinated
  • Picky Eater
  • Difficulty Holding a Pencil or Handwriting (3+)
  • Poor Social Interaction
  • Inability to "Unwind" or "Self-Regulate" emotions
