Nick met a milestone! He had a gross motor goal of holding motor movements for 30 seconds. Prone extension is similar to the “Superman” core exercise. Supine flexion is commonly referred to as a “silly bug” exercise. Nick held both of these positions for 30 seconds last week. Great job!  

Makenzie came to ABA Therapy unable to identify her own emotions, as well as, others. Makenzie also, struggled to problem solve, because she was unsure of how others were feeling around her, which typically caused her to react to the situation inappropriately. 🤷‍♀️

Makenzie has now been working with her therapist for several months on identifying emotions, body language, voice level, etc. While we are still working on mastering this goal, I am so proud of how far Makenzie has come! During Makenzie's session, she witnessed a peer having a tantrum and took it upon herself to analyze her peer's emotions. She recognized that her peer was feeling frustrated, the reasoning why and offered several coping skills the peer could try, in order to calm down. ✔️ 

You go ROCKSTAR!! 🌟 We love watching you grow!!💗

"I love being the Administrative Director here, because I get the opportunity and privilege to hire great people that can serve the children and families of our community. I adopted two of my children out of the foster care program. After my two children were placed in my custody, they were in need of Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy. We were very fortunate that our pediatrician recommended TheraTree. So we started bringing our children here, and Jessica Hatfield was my daughter's therapist. I saw the change it made in my daughter's life and how much it helped her. So when I saw the opportunity to join this team and become the human resources manager, I jumped at it. It is my great pleasure to be able to hire such amazing therapists and support staff here at TheraTree. I have had the privilege to hire many of our amazing team. It is essential to select the right people to join our team. I want positive happy people that are passionate about helping kids grow and meet their greatest potential. If you fit that description or know someone that does have them apply to TheraTree and let me get to know them so that we can have them join our amazing team here at TheraTree." - Stephen
