Holiday help: Surviving the holidays, a sensory approach

Tuesday, Dec 6, 2016 by Child & Family Development

Marion Wilm OTR/L C/NDT is an occupational therapist at Child and Family Development- Pineville.  This month, she relies on a favorite parent handout called "Surviving The Holidays: A Sensory Approach" by Lisa Make, LPC, RN.  The tips include:

  1. Stick to schedules as much as possible.   The more usual the routine, the easier holidays and re-entry will be.
  2. Conitue all daily therapy exercises, diets and supplements without interruption.
  3. Carefully choose the people you are around.  They should know your child and be understanding, tolerant and helpful.
  4. If you child is old enough and appropriate, let him contribute ideas for the holidays.
  5. When travelling, take familiar objects (blankets, pillows, toys, books, etc.) for comfort. 
  6. Plan activities with feasible sensory stimulation. Have an exit plan if things get too overwhelming or too boring.  Schedule activities when crowds are low.
  7. Bring sound-muffling headphones to noisy places if auditory input is difficult.
  8. Have plenty of down time between celebratory activities.
  9. Provide information in advance of and during visits to unfamiliar settings.  Creating a social story might be helpful.
  10. Use a calendar as a visual tool and mark off days to stay oriented to time and place. 
  11. Take things off your to-do list and don't overschedule.
  12. Take care of yourself! Receive a pampering gift, schedule a sitter and take time to appreciate the way things are which can also mean grieving what is not.

Life Animated, documentary review by occupational therapist

Friday, Oct 7, 2016 by Child & Family Development

Marion Wilm OTR/L C/NDT is the most experienced and tenured occupational therapist at Child and Family Development and works at our Pineville office.  Like the other 30+ therapists on our multidisciplinary team, she finds aspects of her work in many places outside the office, including the movie theater.  Recently, she saw a documentary called Life Animated

On the film website, we're told: "It is the true and inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a nonverbal young man with autism who was unable to speak as a child until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate by immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films. Academy Award® winning director Roger Ross Williams tells the emotional coming-of-age story as Owen graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence. The subject of his father Ron Suskind’s New York Times bestseller, Owen was a thriving three year old who suddenly and inexplicably went silent – and for years after remained unable to connect with other people or to convey his thoughts, feelings or desires.  Over time, through repeated viewings of Disney classics like THE LITTLE MERMAID and THE LION KING, Owen found useful tools to help him to understand complex social cues and to re-connect with the world around him. The film evocatively interweaves classic Disney sequences with verite scenes from Owen’s life in order to explore how his identification and empathy for characters like Simba, Jafar, and Ariel gave him a means to understand his feelings and allowed him to interpret reality.  Beautiful, original animations offer rich insights into Owen’s fruitful dialogue with the Disney oeuvre as he imagines himself heroically facing adversity as a member in a tribe of sidekicks.  Owen’s story is a moving testament to the many ways in which stories can serve as a means of persevering through the dark times, leading us all toward the light."

Wear & Tear: a tip for getting kids dressed each morning

Friday, Aug 26, 2016 by Child & Family Development

          

One of the Child and Family Development team members is a mother of two with a creative knack for saving time! Here's one of her great ideas:
 
I use inexpensive shoe organizers to manage getting my kids dressed each day. These have lasted for years, despite a little wear and tear (pun intended).
 
Each shelf has a full outfit (shorts, shirt, underwear, socks) with the appropriate shoes underneath that they are allowed to wear.  They can choose any outfit they want each morning,  The only rule is that each outfit on each “shelf” has to stay together.  As the seasons change, I switch out the shoes and outfits. 
 
If there is a “special dress” day at the school, then I will pull that item out the night before and place it on the floor by his shoes.  My son knows that it means there is a special day and all of the kids will be wearing it and therefore he should wear it too. 
 
My older child has a little more flexibility.  During the school year, I also create a calendar that includes the special dates. It hangs near the closet and let him manage it instead of placing it on the floor. 
 
It’s such a habit in our house that there are no questions asked! 
 
Great idea!

Tuesday, Jun 7, 2016 by Child & Family Development

Happy C&FD Anniversary to Marion Wilm

Marion Wilm OTR/L C/NDT is the most tenured and experienced occupational therapist on our team.  She is celebrating 22 years at Child and Family Development this month.   

Marion loves this time of year, not only because it marks her work at this multidisciplinary practice, but she also receives notes and announcements from historic and current clients about their personal and academic accomplishments.  Recently, she got a card about a young man graduating from The Citadel and another with plans for Clemson's LIFE program this fall.  

A colleague shares:  

Marion is fantastic.  She is a great teacher and is excellent at giving perspective and patience to a situation.  She is a very well-rounded clinician who is still always interested in learning new things and re-purposing old things.  That's really great way to be!

Marion Wilm OTR/L loves this story about development of adaptive shoe

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 by Child & Family Development

Marion Wilm OTR/L C/NDT is the most experienced and tenured occupational therapist at Child and Family Development and works at our Pineville office.  Over her 20+ year career, she has helped many children and teens become more adept at everyday tasks, like dressing, that are referred to as Activities of Daily Living (ADL) by occupational therapists.  She has seen tremendous changes in related products and technology, including this story of Huffington Post.  

The article by Lucy McCalmont tells the story of a young man with cerebral palsy who gained much function and independence over the years but struggled with shoes- getting them on and off, tying them, etc.  His frustration eventually led to a collaboration with Nike, starting with a letter he sent to the company while in high school in 2012.  "What resulted in the three years since was a partnership between Walzer and Hatfield’s team at Nike that culminated...with the company’s unveiling of the Zoom Soldier 8 Flyease. The shoe is the first of its kind for the company, and perhaps any athletic brand specifically designed and dedicated to help those with disabilities and difficulties of buying and wearing shoes."

Handwriting makes us smarter!

Thursday, Apr 21, 2016 by Child & Family Development

Marion Wilm OTR/L C/NDT is the most experienced and tenured occupational therapist at Child and Family Development and works at our Pineville office.  Over her 20+ year career, written expression has changed a lot (from handwriting to typing to keyboarding to smart phones and more!).  She continues to put an emphasis on the importance and benefits of handwriting, printed and cursive. There is more and more evidence that people who take notes by hand retain and process the information more fully.  

Recently, the Wall Street Journal published an article "Can Handwriting Make You Smarter?" by Robert Lee Hotz.  It summarizes several studies on this topic and asserts that while laptops and organizer apps make pen and paper seem antique, handwriting appears to focus classroom attention and boost learning in a way that typing notes on a keyboard does not.  Students who took handwritten notes generally outperformed students who typed their notes via computer, researchers at Princeton University and the University of California- Los Angeles found. Compared with those who type their notes, people who write them out in longhand appear to learn better, retain information longer, and more readily grasp new ideas, according to experiments by other researchers who also compared note-taking techniques.

Marion agrees that the physical act of handwriting rather than typing embeds the information more deeply in our memory and improves the ability to organize information.  This improves the ability to recall information during tests and thus made the students appear “smarter”.  Occupational Therapists continue to work with children in learning how to write-- and type!

What is Occupational Therapy?

Monday, Apr 18, 2016 by Child & Family Development

 

 

Occupational therapy is all about the "job of living". 

The primary role of the occupational therapist in pediatrics is to help children play, grow, and develop many of the skills that will enable them to enjoy a satisfying adult life.  OTs do this through the knowledgeable selection and use of everyday activities (occupations) to evaluate and enhance children’s development and competence.  

We help children, teens and young adults with behavioral, developmental, neurological and physical deficits gain skills and learn to function with as much independence as possible.  Therapy visits might focus on helping kids learn to eat, hold a pencil, write letters and words, cut a straight line, get dressed, brush teeth, stay organized and focused in the classroom or on the playground, manage sensory input and their own behaviors, as well as stretch and strengthen their muscles.  In other words, we help children with everyday activities.  

If you notice difficulties in one or more of these areas, an evaluation and treatment may be appropriate:

  • Behavior
  • Developmental Skill Acquisition 
  • Delayed motor or self-care skills
  • Feeding 
  • Motor Planning
  • Motor 
  • Sensory Processing
  • Visual Perception 

Some of our occupational therapy specialty services are:

Occupational therapist, Marion Wilm reviews article about handwriting

Monday, Dec 28, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Marion Wilm OTR/L C/NDT is the most experienced and tenured occupational therapist at Child and Family Development and works at our Pineville office.  Over her 20+ year career, written expression has changed a lot (from handwriting to typing to keyboarding to smart phones and more!).  She continues to put an emphasis on the importance and benefits of handwriting, printed and cursive. 

Recently, Handwriting Without Tears® (HWT) published an article by Suzanne Baruch Asherson, an OT and author of many pieces titled "Don't Discount Value of Cursive Handwriting". In the article,  Dr. Asherson reminds readers that cursive still has a place in many professional settings.  She notes research that shows kids with good cursive skills have higher scores in the classroom and also suggests that legible writing is a must for successful correspondence of any kind.  She emphasizes that these days is on legibility and efficiency notes that many of us develop a “hybrid” printing and cursive style, as we develop our own personal handwriting.

Marion believes this article does a great job supporting the need for students to learn cursive writing and why this is still relevant in today’s technology driven world.  Cursive writing improves efficiency and critical thinking skills, which are important to be successful for today’s fast-paced education and job environments.  The HWT workbooks for grades 3-5 teach cursive in a way that parents could work with their children at home and perfect it even if the school programs are not teaching it.

craniosacral therapy with C&FD occupational therapists and physical therapist

Tuesday, Dec 1, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on treatment technique utilizing the bones, soft tissues, and fluids surrounding the cranium, spinal column, and sacrum, along with the fascial diaphragms in the body.  The goal of CST is to encourage the self-healing properties within the body and reduce restrictions in fascial movement and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid.  Based on an understanding of neuroscience principles, the membranes of the fascial and craniosacral systems can undergo palpable, sustained change. 

As the body changes, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) changes its rate, rhythm, symmetry and amplitude.  CSF is the filtrate of the arterial blood, which supplies the brain and central nervous system with nutrition, energy and a watery environment in which brain cells and organs can live and function.  

Therapeutic benefits can include:

  • Improved body alignment and function
  • Improved cranial alignment
  • Reduced pain
  • Improved digestion
  • Improved respiration
  • Movement from heightened sympathetic state to a calmer parasympathetic state
  • Increased focus
  • Improved body awareness

People with these conditions and others may benefit from CST:

  • Torticollis/ Plagiocephaly
  • Recurrent ear infections
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Colic and digestive issues
  • Poor attention
  • Reduced impulse control
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Spina Bifida
  • Pain
  • Neurodevelopmental difficulties
  • Balance and coordination disorders
  • Sensory processing disorders

Three members of the Child and Family Development team are trained in CST:

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY                          PHYSICAL THERAPY

Jessica Hoffarth, MS OTR/L                        Jessica Turchin, MPT ATRIC

OT and PT including craniosacral therapy

Thursday, Sep 24, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Recently two occupational therapists and physical therapist from the Pineville office of Child and Family Development completed a craniosacral therapy continuing education course.   

Jessica Turchin, MPT, ATRIC, Jessica Hoffarth, MS, OTR/L and Marion Wilm, OTR/L have already incorporated this technique into their pediatric therapy work.  

Sheryl McGavin is a Charlotte-based occupational therapist whose has an expertise in this area and offers services and courses to others.  

Sheryl's website states, "craniosacral therapy (CST), and the somatoemotional process, addresses the body as well as the emotions and considers the individual with regard for his or her unique situation. CST treatment principles recognize how all parts of the body and the person are interrelated, and how structure and function affect each other. The innate intelligence of the body is respected and treatment focuses on releasing blocks, tensions or restrictions that may inhibit the body's self healing abilities. The subtle, rhythmic motion of the craniosacral system (the membranes and fluids surrounding the brain and spinal cord) is palpated to locate the origins of symptoms and light touch is used to work with the structures involved. The gentle nature of this work makes it accessible to people of all ages and almost all conditions. 

CST can be beneficial for childhood concerns, including but not limited to:

  • feeding difficulties
  • sleep issues
  • recurrent ear infections
  • colic and digestive issues
  • torticollis
  • plagiocephaly (misshapen head),
  • sensory processing issues
  • neurodevelopmental difficulties 

Our occupational therapy and physical therapy teams offer free phone consultations and screens.  Call our office to schedule one with Jessica, Jessica or Marion.

Occupational therapist, Marion Wilm, celebrates 21 years at Child and Family Development

Friday, Jun 19, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Marion Wilm marks 21 years at Child and Family Development this month! She is an occupational therapist at the Pineville office.  

TEAMwilm15

Her reflection now:  The mission of C&FD is to provide comprehensive, integrated and quality services to children and families.  I have enjoyed being part of the integrated C&FD team of clinicians over the past 21 years because they have stimulated me to always look at the big picture. 

As I evaluate a child, I am not just interested in what they can during the session but in how issues impact their life in the home and community and how occupational therapy might make a difference for their present and their future. 

I can’t make a real difference in providing a service only once per week, but if I support and educate the family about their child’s strengths and weaknesses and give knowledge and tools, they can help their child the rest of the week. Then, we can all make a difference together. 

Child + Family + Clinical team = Success

Happy C&FD Anniversary!

Occupational Therapy review: cursive handwriting is still important

Thursday, Jun 18, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Marion Wilm, OTR/L, an occupational therapist at the Pineville office of Child and Family Development, recently reviewed an article about cursive handwriting 

This article by Meghan Hicks on How We Montessori.com poses the question, "Cursive Handwriting- Is it a dying art or an essential skill?" 

cursive-1

It asserts that many parents are not aware that cursive handwriting is an essential part of the Montessori experience, and although some believe with the advent of the digital age that handwriting should take a back seat in favor of keyboarding and word processing skills, good Montessori teachers know that learning cursive is so much more than just the letters on the page.  
And Marion agrees...

 

She shares, "The scientific and practical arguments for why cursive handwriting is still important are very true.  It seems like we are always looking for new ways to stimulate brain maturation and development in today’s children.  While it is important to embrace new technology and new ways of thinking, we should also not be so quick to discard  tools such as cursive handwriting that have historically worked well."

 

Marion and the 8 other licensed occupational therapists at Child and Family Development are available to share their expertise. We are in-network with many insurance plans, including Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield NC, Cigna, Medcost, North Carolina Medicaid, Primary Physician Care and United Health Care.  Our clients also may pay privately and access out-of-network benefits.
