Physiotherapy is Fun!
Who said that physiotherapy sessions have to be difficult and boring?
ALEH’s school kids will tell you otherwise!
Accompanied by their teacher, a physiotherapist, caregivers, rehabilitative aide, and a National Service girl, a group of students from ALEH’s special education school recently enjoyed a great Field Day in beautiful fall weather.
Beginning with a brisk walk to a local park, the kids loved climbing the slides and swinging on the swings. They didn’t even realize the physiotherapist was busy giving the staff direction in how to strengthen their back muscles, encourage independent walking, foot exercises etc.
For ALEH’s kids, the opportunity to enjoy a normal, fun-filled activity while practicing physiotherapy goals is a treat we aim to give them daily.
