A guest blogger: 3 lessons I’ve learned from being a volunteer therapy aide at Now I Can

At Now I Can we are blessed to have an army of intelligent and dedicated students from our local universities work as volunteer therapy aides. They are a crucial part of our therapy team.

Play is great therapy–a new playground thanks to doTERRA

When children come to receive treatment from the Now I Can Foundation, they are work very hard. Twenty hours of treatment each week takes a toll physically and mentally on a family.

Many have specific goals of increased independence–like learning to get in the car themselves, or learning to ride a bike. At Now I Can, our team works with children to reach these dreams!
