Momcologist & Occupational Therapist- Edit Keshishyan

I am so grateful to have met some amazing Momcologists during my son’s treatment. My next guest, Edit Keshishyan is a fellow momcologist and an Occupational Therapist. 💝

.

.

We’ve known each other for the last year and a half. I was so happy when the stars aligned and she joined me on the podcast to talk about her amazing daughter, Emma, and how Edit was able to help her through some of the toughest times during her treatment for Leukemia. With over 10 years of experience as an Occupational Therapist, Edit founded her company, Achieving Milestones Therapy, not too long ago. 🙌

In this episode Edit shares with us Emma’s story and all the amazing things that OT can do to help children during treatment. We talk about the many side effects of the chemotherapy our children had to take and we take a deep dive into the multiple facets of OT. 🏃🏼‍♀️

.

.

So settle in as we unpack the multitude of ways to help your child during treatment. We touch upon everything from sensory play, to ways to strengthen muscles, increase your child’s gross motor skills (large muscles), their fine motor (smaller muscles) and strengthen their vision. 🧩

.

.

We even get a special celebrity appearance from Emma as she drops in for a little bit to say “hi” and show me her missing teeth and wiggly tooth! 🦷

.

.

What side effects has your child experienced due to treatment? Some of the most common issues are trouble walking due walking do to steroids, sensory sensitivity, and specific food preferences. 🍪

.

.

Whatever the issue, Edit is here to help and support you and your child throughout their treatment. 💛
