How Were These Exercises Chosen?

Through my work at schools in impoverished communities, and through working with kids who had a variety of challenges, I looked for activities that could easily be done with a minimum of equipment and by children with otherwise poor skills.

I understand the financial restraints that parents face, as well as their desire to give their child the best possible start in life.

With this in mind, I have chosen core strengthening exercises for kids that are easily replicable in the home and use inexpensive everyday resources.

As with all the activities on my website, real-life photos accompany the instructions.

Review: Core Strengthening Exercises For Kids

When my children's teacher pointed out that one child wasn't crossing his midline and the other child had weak core muscles, I felt worried. Until I found OT-Mom. She makes everything seem manageable and what's more, fun!

My kids and I have been incorporating the core exercises into playtime and I can already see such a difference.

The e-book is easy to follow and very encouraging. I feel that it is going to save us a fortune in OT bills and I'm very grateful for that.

I've been recommending OT-Mom to every mother I know because I think we all need to be aware of how far reaching these issues are. I've certainly realized where I myself am lacking in Core Strength! So the whole family is doing 'circus tricks' now!
Thank you Tracey.

Why Is This E-Book Not Free?

If you have stumbled upon this page by accident, you may be wondering why my e-books are not free! I cannot afford to maintain this website (which takes hours of work) without a source of income.

I have kept the prices as low as possible, but if you genuinely cannot afford an e-book, and need more than the free core strengthening exercises for kids that I already offer on my site, then feel free to contact me to explain your situation and make your request.

None of the OT Mom E-Books serve as a substitute for an occupational therapy evaluation and treatment. Please read my E-Book Disclaimer for further details.
