One of our Physiotherapists, Sandy Tung, attended a core stability course this Fall called Dynamic Core for Kids: Part 1 and 2. It was presented by Shelly Mannell from HeartSpace Physical Therapy and her co-presenter, Julie Wiebe. The first part of the course focused on the importance of the core, the diaphragm, and the pelvis working together as one unit. The second part of the course focused on different ways to activate a child’s core. Sandy is already incorporating many of these core stability principles into her sessions.

Did you know that leaving your child with special needs money in your will, could make them ineligible for ODSP benefits? Did you know that an RDSP is actually more like a pension plan than a savings plan? These are important!! This is some of the content that Graeme Treeby of the Special Needs Planning Group discussed with us at our Parent Networking Evening last week. More information is available at his website www.specialneedsplanning.ca – we highly encourage those of you who couldn’t attend to check it out!
Also, thank-you for the donated toys for the exchange! Any leftover toys are being donated to Value Village in the name of the OFCP – Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy.
Thanks for making this evening a success!
