Safety While Supporting Someone From Home

  • It is vital to know the prior and current health conditions.

  • Collaborate with your child's Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, and Primary Doctor to monitor changing medical needs and monitor times for movement.

  • It is important to start very easy and slowly increase the stretch as the muscles loosen. Over stretching can cause pain and injury.

  • It is essential to know how the person best communicates and to be attentive to their communication via words, vocalization, facial expression, body movement, assistive technology, picture communication symbols, or actual objects.

  • It is better to stop if you believe the individual is experiencing discomfort beyond what the stretch is providing.

  • If an injury does occur, call your health provider or 9-1-1 immediately​​
