 Therapy Downloads
First off I need to make sure everyone understands I am NOT a Doctor or a Therapist, 
and this is not intended to replace anything your Doctor or Therapist may want you to do.

I spent every hour with Chris in his therapy sessions and I took notes and asked for copies of some of the tools that they used with him.  There were many times during therapy that I saw drills that seem to make common sense and worked well,  I also saw many that seemed to do nothing but aggravate him. I have put together some of their ideas and some of my own and devised a plan of therapy that he continued with at home, below is a general idea of what he did and a few downloads. 
I hope this is helpful to some of you, I know it won't help everyone but if we can help just one person then it was worth my time! I will be adding to this page as I can, if you have any requests of things you would like me to add please Email me.

Cheryl's Email

I have tried in each of these to explain carefully how to use them but I realized in typing them up this wasn't 
easy if you weren't there in person to explain, so if you have ANY questions please contact me!

Each therapy item that is underlined will open in a new page so you can print it from your browser.
