SunnyDays was created to provide Speech and Occupational therapy to help infants to young adults achieve milestones, independence, and confidence in all areas of their life. SunnyDays Therapy has offices in Minnetonka, Albertville, and Waconia, Minnesota. We understand that you may not live close to these areas, so we wanted to create a blog to share fun activities and educate families, teachers, healthcare professionals, and many others who work with kids.
Throughout an occupational or speech therapy session, a child participates in many activities to target various areas of development. These activities are engaging and fun for the child to complete. This blog will provide you with activities that you and your child can do in the home setting. There will also be posts about various topics related to occupational and speech therapy to educate and inform you.
Have fun completing these activities, learn lots, and create memories!
