Pediatric therapy in your home and therapeutic recreational activities such as summer camp go hand-in-hand. In addition to the home, a Solace pediatric-specialized therapist may recommend conducting a visit(s) in a  daycare, outdoor or other familiar setting for your child to maximize the impact. They may also recommend participation in Summer camp or other summer programs as a great way to supplement your in-home therapy services. Not only do many of the specialized programs enhance your child’s development, they certainly contribute to a fun summer!
