Kids Can ... Pediatric Clinic is closing on July 31, 2016.

Kids Can ... Pediatric Clinic is closing on July 31, 2016. 

A very big thank you to those of you who have visited the clinic and purchased so many of my things over the last six weeks. While I have sold a lot, there are still many resources and particularly, fine motor and visual motor items left, as well as some office furniture and supplies. All of the SI equipment and most of the gross motor equipment is sold, as are most of the assessments. However, for those of you still interested, please drop by on Tuesday or Wednesday, July 26 – 27th, any time between 9:30 and 6:00pm, and look over what I have. Items will be going for reduced prices, and some things will be free. I would rather it go to OTs that are going to use it, versus throwing it out or into re-cycle! After Wednesday, it will be too late.  

Do not worry about making appointments, unless you need to come outside of the hours I listed. If you need to, please phone me at 403-818-8483. Otherwise, just come on over to my clinic / office at 2115 - Sirocco Drive SW, Calgary. 

I look forward to seeing you or seeing you again

Vestibular input and Extensors

This is an interesting piece of information that has affected my practice:

If vestibular input is not enough, not enough tone will develop in the extensors. 
Book Source: Movements that heal

Has anyone found this to be helpful in their practice?
