A Step Ahead and DSAGC will assist Hispanic families who have children with Down syndrome
Cincinnati, OH – October 24, 2011 – A Step Ahead Pediatric Therapy, a comprehensive pediatric rehabilitation practice based in Northern Kentucky, is teaming up with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati to host an informational seminar for Hispanic families who have children with Down Syndrome.
The seminar, which is scheduled for October 29th from 10:00am – 11:30am at the A Step Ahead office inCrestview Hills,KY, will offer Hispanic families the opportunity to gain expertise from pediatric therapists on how to better help and teach their children on a day-to-day basis.
“The Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati is grateful to partner with A Step Ahead to provide an educational program for our Hispanic families,” says Sally K. Tilow, outreach coordinator for the DSAGC. “A Step Ahead offers our families the opportunity to learn strategies and techniques to promote their child’s development from a variety of knowledgeable therapists in a warm, friendly atmosphere. We couldn’t be happier with the collaboration.”
Pediatric physical and occupational therapists from A Step Ahead will provide information on motor challenges that children with Down Syndrome typically face. The staff will also discuss some of the more common treatment strategies that they can incorporate into their daily routines, positions and activities to avoid, and how to continue early intervention. A translator will be present for the entire seminar to offer the utmost understanding of the information.
“Every child develops at their own pace, regardless of disability, and these children are no different.” says Daniel Cross, president and managing partner at A Step Ahead. “Our goal is to give these parents some helpful tips and advice that they can use immediately in their child’s development.”
The A Step Ahead staff will be available during the seminar for one-on-one Q & A and a supervised area with games and snacks will be provided for the kids. The translator will also assist with individual questions from the families.
