Are you a mom of a special needs child? Grown Thru Play is having a night out just for you!
What is Grow Thru Play? Grow Thru Play is a pediatric therapy practice which focuses on play as a child’s main occupation. According to their web site they "provide occupational therapy, physical therapy, group classes, and educational seminars." They also "offer comprehensive evaluation and use current research to guide individual and group treatment plans. Grow Thru Play, LLC is a place where children of all abilities can play, learn, and grow."
One reason I'm focusing on Grow Thru Play is because they not only offer creative therapy that you can read about on their web site but they also are having "A Special Moms' Night Out." While I'll focus on the importance of Early Intervention for children in a later post, the importance of a network for moms (or for dads) is of nearly equal importance. There is a certain isolation many moms with 'special needs' children go through that a night like this addresses and makes a huge difference in a woman's ability to provide quality parenting. Face it, being part of a group and having other women to talk to who are going through similar experiences is invaluable. I wish I'd found this sooner since the event is on August 4th. Hopefully some of you will be able to make it and it won't be the only event like this they have for parents. Don't forget to RSVP!
