How to Help Troubled Kids Overcome Challenges and Succeed

Parents and guardians have been spending more time with their children in the past nearly two years of a global pandemic, and they may have noticed their children struggling.

These struggles can be caused by a number of things, but the important thing is that parents don’t ignore any signs they might see.

Lori Shaffer, speech therapist at MetroEHS Pediatric Therapy, said some signs to be aware of in children include:

  • Do not speak.

  • Not wanting hugs from loved ones.

  • Acting in retreat.

  • Walk on their toes.

  • Difficulty eating.

There are a wide range of causes for the problems listed above, but there are also ways to help children overcome these challenges.

Shaffer said a number of pediatric therapies could benefit children. These can include occupational, physical, dietary, mental health and more.

She said MetroEHS provides pediatric therapy services for children ages 18 months to 7 years old, including those on the autism spectrum.
