5 Reasons to Provide Push In Therapy

Whether you work in the schools or in the home, here are 5 reasons to provide pediatric occupational or physical therapy in a child's natural environment:

1. You have the chance to see first hand during each session what functional tasks or skills need improvement.

2. The child's normal daily routine is not interrupted. If it is during school hours, the child will not be missing important class instruction.

3. You can provide and use only materials that are in the classroom or home making it more feasible for teachers and parents to carry over activities when you are not there.

4. You can actually see whether your environmental modifications are appropriate. Are teachers or parents able to carry out your recommendations to use adaptive equipment or modify assignments?

5. The teachers and parents can observe what you are doing each time making it easier for them to incorporate any techniques into the child's normal day everyday not just 2 times per week for 30 minutes.
