You Might be a Pediatric Therapist if…

3 Jan

1. You know NDT isn’t a wrestling move
2. You know SI doesn’t mean sports illustrated
3. You ask friends and spouses if they need to go “potty”
4. You get really good at spelling words like ” candy, mom, and playground” so kids don’t hear
5. You’ve found crayons and highlighters in your laundry
6. You save random household products to use for “therapy tools”
7. You shop for toys for yourself
8. You refer to your patients as your “kids”
9. You know Hippotherapy doesnt involve hippos
10. You impact the lives of children and their families to enhance their independence and development in order for them to grow and learn.

    How about…you need pants with reinforced knees or patches since you spend so much time on the floor.

    You think having a real therapy room is a five star hotel compared to the closet or hallway where you have had to work.

    #7 is so true. Every time I go shopping I have my therapy goggles on looking for a great toy or activity to incorporate into a therapy session.

    So funny and so true!

    I always find myself telling my husband “use your words!”
