FreeLance : Learning Disability

learning disability always associate with dyslexia. it is almost the same, but slightly different
learning disability may pertaining to other disability such as physical limitations, down's syndrome, autism, mental retarded and many more..
but, dyslexia usually cause by unable to recognize the letter,spelling, and confusion in calculation.

treatment by occupational therapy regarding both problem, we will tackle the attention and concentration first
then, to give them input about the letter, concept and calculation, we use sensory approach

sand therapy - using fingers, to write on the sand..
dough - make the shape of cake, and cut the cake into few pieces.
marbles - for additional and subtract..
whatever it is, occupational therapy can not be a teacher to teach all about the lessons

mother breast milk is most important thing and the best remedy for the baby..
well, therapist will help the mother how to do the 'touch therapy' for the baby which is effective to increase baby's weight
for the baby in ward, usually touch therapy will be done by the therapist,
but, it is the best done by the mother because the mother touch is so miracle..

touch therapy is the massage to stimulate all the glands, the sensory, and improve baby's blood circulation..
for the normal baby, they are active in moving, 
but for the preterm baby, they just lying in the couch without playing and moving actively..

wHat caN I dO???

a vegetative patient had referred to me for therapy
in the first year working, its quite tough for me
the prognosis was poor, seems the patient can not survive anymore
anyway, it just a prognosis which is miracle might be happen

after referring to the senior, and do some study..
actually my role was big to this patient
i have to keep moving the joints to prevent contracture, prescribe splint, prevent spasticity and many more.

what if,,, the patient had recover, but the joint already tight and the muscle  already stiff????
patient have to undergo more tiring physical rehabilitation so that they can be functional back
and, for the serious case, the spasticity and tightness unable to fix back due to no movement during coma

what ever it is, you have to help patient as you can..
no condition in exception
all patients have right to survive..
