“Hi, I work in a private clinic and I enjoy using Timocco’s games during therapy. Some parents of children that I work with in-clinic have purchased Timocco’s home-edition package so their child can continue playing and developing skills at home. One child’s parents asked me to build them a workout plan, but they’re not sticking to it. What do you suggest?”
The problem you’re describing is well known to us both as parents and therapists.
Often there’s much we want to get done, but ultimately due to the demands of our daily routines sometimes we achieve very little of what we planned.
Timocco workout plans are very important for developing a child’s skills and improving daily functioning, and parents who purchase Timocco packages for their homes understand that. But they don’t always find a suitable time to play and so the plan is put off, and pushed back, again and again.
The solution that we suggest is simple, effective and suitable for every home. Every home has its routine and parents should add “Timocco Time” to the schedule – about 10-15 minutes during the week that is allocated to playing Timocco and having some fun family time.
We recommend that parents begin first with “Timocco Time” once a week and then after a fortnight increase that to twice a week, and onwards until they reach the recommendations of the child’s workout plan.
Allocating “Timocco Time” to a household’s weekly schedule will make playing Timocco, and developing and improving skills, part of the home’s routine activity and in that way a child can continue practicing at home skills learned and gained in therapy.
Hope this helps,
