Parent Participation is Critical For All Forms of Child Therapy

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Parent Participation is Critical For All Forms of Child Therapy

Los Angeles, California – February 26, 2016 – Previously physical therapy for children was the exclusive domain of therapists and physicians. Parents were usually not involved in the therapy for their children. It was not until recently that physical therapists became more aware of the possible role of parents in child therapy. The role of parents changed from a passive one into an active participating one. Parents became a sort of co-therapist, meaning that while therapists decided on the treatment goals and methods, parents were expected to perform the treatment activities at home in cooperation with the treatment activities of the therapist in the clinic.

Parental involvement helps to ensure the treatment has the best possible chance for success. The hours spent in a clinical setting undergoing therapy are critical for a child’s development, but they only account for a fraction of the time that they spend in their natural setting with you and your family. This affords the opportunity for the parents to continue to implement the principles of the treatment in the home, after receiving proper instruction and training. 

In order to transfer physical therapy in the rehabilitation center to the daily functioning of the child, it is important to introduce therapy activities into daily practice. Parents can play a crucial role in this transfer. Parents who participate in the physical therapy for their children with disabilities are likely to develop more insight into the impairments and abilities of their children, resulting in a more realistic view of their child’s potential in terms of daily functioning. By participating in therapy, parents can become more adept at taking care of their child. Eventually, this increases parents’ confidence in their own competence and reduces parental stress.
