When Karen Conrad, ScD, OTR/L met Paul Weihrauch, PhD nearly 15 years ago, two wonderful things happened–the start of a new life together and the birth of an innovative solution–a solution that would help revolutionize the way occupational therapists, educators, and parents provide preventive, developmental, and rehabilitative care.
Weihrauch recalls that Karen, a clinician with more than 25 years of experience, developed the idea of Therapro as a result of her own experiences in occupational therapy. "From the time that we first met in 1984, Karen had this idea of selling products to working therapists in the school systems. She knew that this was a new and growing area. In December of 1985, we got married and in the summer of 1986 we founded Therapro."
Although Therapro originally offered specialty products and publications for mainly school-based and pediatric practices, today it provides products that address the needs of people in every stage of life, helping serve the occupational concerns of not only occupational therapists, but speech therapists, physical therapists, and educators as well.
Therapro offers innovative products for occupational therapists, speech therapists, physical therapists, educators, and parents. Let them help you with supplies designed to:
- Provide teaching strategies for special needs teachers and parents
- Develop and enhance children's perceptual, cognitive and motor skills
- Help therapists and teachers learn how to develop and improve fine motor skills in children with special challenges
- Allow therapists, teachers and parents to customize design activities for developmental delays
- Encourage the development of communication and necessary life skills
Therapro's goal is to provide unique speech and occupational therapy supplies that help to revolutionize the way occupational therapists, educators, and parents provide preventive, developmental, and rehabilitative care. With the right tools, developing gross motor skills, fine motor skills and communication skills is less frustrating for the patient. Therapro has assembled a collection of occupational therapy products that simplify teaching and learning, resulting in a better outcome in a shorter period of time
Therapro hasn't forgotten educators. They offer special education teacher resources, and occupational therapy products designed for use in the preschool or grade school classroom. Choose the children's special needs equipment that addresses the specific deficiencies present in your classroom. From teaching children how to develop and improve fine motor skills to providing support for the hearing impaired student, Therapro is at your side with the products and supplies that special education teachers need everyday.
