April is for Autism Awareness

Dear Theradynamics Community,

As April comes to a close, we reflect on the significance of this month and celebrate the progress made in raising awareness about autism, recognizing occupational therapy, and shedding light on Parkinson’s disease. Here’s a recap of the month’s key themes and how they resonate with our commitment to innovative therapy solutions.

Utilizing Technology for Enhanced Treatment

The Interactive Metronome is more than just a device; it’s a dynamic therapy tool that helps improve focus, coordination, and cognitive processing. By incorporating this technology into our sessions, we’ve seen firsthand how it benefits our clients by enhancing their motor skills, attention span, and overall quality of life.

Physical Therapy for Autism:

Some of the assessments and interventions we focus on include:

  • Postural strength and control
  • Functional mobility (walking, running, etc.)
  • Body and safety awareness
  • Limb and body coordination
  • Play skills development
  • Identifying interests and motivators


  • Originating during World War I, OT initially utilized arts and crafts to aid in the rehabilitation of injured soldiers.
  • OT plays a crucial role in disaster response and recovery, helping individuals cope with trauma, regain independence, and rebuild their lives after natural disasters, accidents, or other emergencies.
  • OT practitioners often work in diverse settings, including hospitals, schools, rehabilitation centers, and even corporate offices, where they address ergonomics and workplace wellness.
