Don’t Take Our Word For It: improvements from occupational therapy


Melissa Petcu, MS, OTR/L is an occupational therapist at the Midtown office of Child and Family Development.  Recently, a parent sent her an affirming and kind note!  

Here is a paraphrased excerpt: 

It’s always a challenge to talk at the end of appointments but I wanted to thank you and tell you how much we appreciate all of the hard work you have put in.  We are really starting to see a lot of good progress and change with him which I’m sure a direct reflection of your OT sessions. His teacher showed me all of the art work he’s been doing lately.  The feedback I’ve heard is he is also participating more.  I’ve seen a lot of progress at gymnastics. He’s doing much better at home too.  He loves playing with Legos and he’s getting better at putting the small pieces together.  So, thanks again for all of your hard work and we look forward to continuing on and seeing more great change!

This is what occupational therapy is all about!
