One of our distinguished faculty members Angelique Micallef-Courts recently published in the Advance Magazine for Occupational Therapists
“Pilates is one of the fastest-growing forms of exercise, so it is not surprising that it can be an effective tool for occupational therapists working with children on the autism spectrum – one of the fastest growing disabilities in children. According to the CDC, the number of children with autism has increased from 1 in 150 in 2000 to 1 in 88 as of 2008. With more parents seeking creative therapies for their children, OTs can capitalize on the many benefits Pilates offers “.
Please share with us your experiences of using Pilates with your patients, or contact us if you would like to learn more.
