OT Corner: How to Help Children with Low Muscle Tone
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
If you are a parent or teacher, you might wonder how to help children with low muscle tone. As pediatric therapists, we often work with children who have hypotonia or low muscle tone. Children who have low muscle tone may receive direct occupational or physical therapy services for a limited time per week or month. Therefore, it is crucial that parents and teachers understand how to help children with low muscle tone on a daily basis. Pediatric OTs and PTs are excellent resources to help children with low muscle tone.
