A child can develop creativity and abstract thinking skills by working closely with an art therapist. Working with materials like clay and paper gives the child a pleasant sensory stimulation, leading to regulated motor skills and posture. Moreover, creating art can improve self-esteem and thereby better social skills. [ref][Art Therapy](http://www.monarchcenterforautism.org/therapy/art-therapy "Art Therapy").

Both children and adolescents can do resistance training and plyometrics so long as they are appropriately prescribed and supervised (Faigenbaum, 2009). Plyometric exercises, coupled with a complete resistance training program have been found to enhance movement biomechanics, improve functional abilities, and decrease the number of sports-related injuries in young athletes (Faigenbaum et al., 2009). Up to 50% of preadolescent sports injury could be prevented when children are involved in strength and conditioning programs (ACSM, 1993). There are numerous proposed benefits of resistance training. It helps to increase muscle strength and endurance and minimze risk of injury in sports as ligaments/tendons around muscles are strengthened.
The rehabilitation team, composed of various expert medical services include general practitioners, nurses, physical therapist, speech therapist, occupational therapist and psychiatrist, among others, can make a program to help patients with diseases that damage many organs, such as stroke and heart disease. In addition, physical therapy is also a key factor in the growth and progress of the children in need special, especially for children who experience delays in growth stage, misalanya of children with cerebral palsy and other genetic disorders. Physical therapy for children combine therapy with games, supporting not only the physical, but also factors in mental health and mind. Physical therapy is usually also available in special schools for these children. You can undergo physical therapy as a single therapy, or use them together with any other type of treatment, such as General on the surgery.
As a sport psychologist it is important to know various ways in which they can help prevent burnout in athletes. Potgieter (2006), states the following factors on how to reduce burnout from occurring: monitoring the athlete, variety in practice sessions, to deal effectively with post competition tension, social support, athlete input, control, revision of goals, psychological interventions, prolonged rest and lastly timeouts. This article is also trying to get across to sport psychologists to alleviate stress and burnout. The article mentions how coaches should allow their kids to attend educational programs teaching life skills and time management. The article aims to build athletic resilience by reducing risk factors and stressors (Masten and Reed, 2002).
The OT will look at how things may have changed for Taylor after a TBI and SCI and then recommends different ways to do tasks or provide modified equipment to support him to be independent as much as possible. This includes recognising levels of care and help needed to complete tasks. PT should conduct both the physical assessment and planning of physical therapy. They can assess and promotes mobility, movement, muscle strength, coordination, balance and stamina. PT can also provide information on walking aids, develop a fitness/mobility plan and provide training to Taylor’s family/caregiver.
(2001). For children with low self esteem it is often difficult to articulate what strengths they have and what attributes would help them cope more effectively (http://pegasus.cc.ucf.edu/~drbryce/Play%20Therapy%20Techniques.pdf). Therefore this play therapy technique will contribute the child with independency where the child will be guided on how to find their own strengths. There are more play therapy techniques that used to help children with emotional problems, ADHD, autism, behavioural problems etc. There are many advantageous gained by this therapy for those children with various difficulties as mentioned above.
The study also found that positive parenting may moderate children’s association with intimate partner violence. The results from this study show that it is imperative that parents practice positive parenting and children not be exposed to situations where violence or abuse take places because these can cause profound effects on children psychologically, whether it is dealing with stress, coping with trauma, perceiving threats, hyperarousal, avoidance, fear, security, interpersonal relationships, and negative self-attributions. All of these things can follow and often do follow children into adulthood. Also, children may repeat the same cycle they experienced with their own
Measurement of self-reported pain intensity in children and adolescents Summary: In "measurement of self-reported pain intensity in children and adolescents"; the authors describe the different methods used to assess pediatric pain intensity and review the commonly used, self reported measurements of pain. The authors compiled the results of several systemic reviews to determine which pain assessment technique would deem most appropriate and accurate. The author recognizes that accurate pain assessment using reliable measures is of great importance in the healthcare of a child- since pain can be indicative of further complications, and children may be alleviated of pain to avoid discomfort. Whichever the case may be, it is considered important to determine the intensity and source of the pain so the health care team can be knowledgeable of the patients’ condition so the best possible health outcomes and comfort measures may be achieved.
Benefits of VR Therapy Using virtual reality simulations and games can help those with brain damage or recent moderate to severe strokes recover. Virtual reality simulations can have a wide variety of applications in therapy, such as muscular, joint, and visual and cognitive rehabilitation. Recently therapists have been intrigued at how virtual reality affects a patient’s motor skills and muscular neural connections. Researchers say, “Around 55 to 75 percent of stroke patients experience mobility problems that impair their quality of life. The findings suggest these games may provide a better alternative to aid stroke patients in their rehabilitation” (Langhorne & Stott, 2011).
However, because of Jonathan’s impairments, there will be many modifications to the device, which require assistance from his physical and occupational therapists. Jonathan’s occupational therapist, responsible for modifying the device, can do this through enlarging the phone. Jonathan then will have enough space on the screen to type, play games, take pictures, and more. This extra space is vital because of his limited mobility and an enlarged screen would help him accurately press the desired button. Jonathan’s physical therapist would contribute by working to improve Jonathan’s strength in his arms, allowing him the power to use his finger to select a letter or app.
Plyometric training is a physical training method to improve power and speed, and it is also commonly included in ACL injury prevention programs. Neuromuscular training appears to be effective in reducing ACL injury risk and that lower extremity strength and balance exercises, in combination with core and trunk control seem to be necessary components of a successful ACL injury prevention program (Myklebust
Some of these medications may help calm any irritability, aggression, depression, hyperactivity, and attention problems that a person may have (nimh.nih.gov). Early detection is especially important in helping with early behavioral intervention. Early intervention can help a child, even though they have not been formally diagnosed, anywhere from the age of birth to 3-year-old with services that include therapy to walk, talk, and interact with others (cdc.org). There are various traditional and nontraditional treatment approaches offered. However, since not every case of autism is exactly alike it is hard to determine which one treatment approach is beneficial.
