Physical therapists encourage families to make play an important part of childhood. Kids need to move and be outside playing, exploring, running, jumping, rolling down hills, and riding bikes. Kids need to actively explore their environments. To learn more about and how it can benefit your child, check out the Children’s Therapy Clinic at https://eastersealshouston.org/childrens-therapy/ today!

01/26/2023

Pediatric Occupational Therapy provides support and intervention to children and education to parents. Occupational Therapists (OTs) determine underlying causes that impact development and provide skilled and individualized intervention to the child. OTs are skilled in assessing and analyzing motor development, activities of daily living/self-care, visual motor, sensory processing, cognitive development, social interactions, and play and leisure. These skills are daily activities that are important for a child’s development and occur in their everyday environment including home, school, and community. Through play, real life, and simulated activities, OTs meet the child at their developmental level and provide the support the child needs for them to perform at their highest level.

Here's a fun example of a recent session! Our OT was working on a craft with a robot theme since the client loves robots. The craft focused on following directions and fine motor coordination by folding, coloring, and winding up the toy. Our Children's Therapy team combines their expertise with creativity to make the sessions fun for our clients! Learn more at https://eastersealshouston.org/childrens-therapy/

Meet our wonderful and passionate Director, Mrs. Tabitha Hernandez!

A little about me: I am a native Texan, but I spent time in New England for college. My favorite thing to do is spend time with my husband. Together we play sports, travel, and learn about people, especially their cuisine choices! Sharing a good meal and conversation can brighten any day.

Why I love to teach: My passion for teaching began at a young age. I was always the helper in class and took great joy in facilitating others to make connections. I was led to Special Education by my middle sister, who has a seizure disorder and learning disabilities. My passion for teaching grew with the more challenging minds I encountered, as they forced me to think more creatively and critically about what I was teaching. Even to this day, my favorite aspect of teaching is getting to know each student for who they are and finding out not only what they want and need to learn but how best to support their learning.

Experience: I have been the Director at The Caroline School since 2016 and love watching it grow and change. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders and a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology and Leadership in Special Populations, as well as a variety of certifications in the areas of physical, social, and cognitive development. I am also a Texas Certified Director. Ultimately, I believe in being a lifelong learner and welcome the expertise that others graciously offer me.
