January 2024 Updates and Resources

A Message From Our Director

Dear Amaryllis Community:

Happy New Year! I hope you all are staying warm in our first cold snap of the year and finding indoor activities to entertain everyone. I am excited to step into the role of director of Amaryllis and that Cindy can now focus on her passion of helping babies. Changes coming to Amaryllis this year include adding Early Intervention services. Some of our therapists will be providing in-home services through Rocky Mountain Human Services and the Developmental Disabilities Resource Center to children aged 0-3 years. We are excited to add these services and help families both in the clinic and outside of the clinic. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime at stephanie@amaryllistherapy.com.



Snow Day Policy

The clinic will follow the same weather closures as Denver Public Schools. Please refer to 9 News or our Facebook Page to check if we are closed on that day.

Thank you!

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!

At Amaryllis, we are committed to providing quality and consistent care for our clients and their families. Our therapists work as a team to create detailed and individualized therapy plans so that if your regular therapist is sick or out, another one of our skilled providers can easily step in, ensuring your child doesn't miss valuable treatment time! Talk to your therapist about finding a good match for your child.

Therapy from Home

Good news! Many insurance plans now approve Telehealth services! Telehealth is a great option when the weather is bad or there is an illness in the family. 

Telehealth is an excellent opportunity for you to see what therapy looks like for your child. It allows your therapist the chance to provide insight on how to promote carry-over of therapeutic activities at home and adjust your child's home program as needed. Children also love to show their favorite toy or activity at home!

Talk to your therapist and see if telehealth services are approved for your child!

Wake Up Your Child’s Brain with NeuroMovement®

Anat Baniel Method® NeuroMovement® is a science-based approach for waking up your child’s brain, providing it with the information and conditions to grow, develop, and thrive.

With over 30 years of experience working with children of all ages and a variety of conditions, we have seen children overcome many limitations and experience surprising new possibilities! Learn more about this Method in Anat Baniel’s book, Kids Beyond Limits.

Andrew Tarr is an Anat Baniel Method of NeuroMovement (ABMNM) practitioner here at Amaryllis who works with children and adults. He also trained and works as a Feldenkrais Practitioner. These two methods are closely related, evolving from the work and teachings of Dr. Moshe Feldenkrais. 

This video (link below) introduces Baniel’s book, Kids Beyond Limits, which I highly recommend to patients, caregivers, teachers, and professionals. 

For any questions about this work, or to schedule a session,

contact Andrew directly at (303) 345-5777, tarr.andrew@gmail.com, or visit 



Snow Ice Cream

Looking for a fun activity to do with your kids on a snowy day? Try making Snow Ice Cream!

(Recipe by Gimme Some Oven.)


  • 1 cup milk (any kind)
  • 1/3 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch fine sea salt
  • 8 cups clean snow or shaved ice (more or less, depending on the density of the snow)
  • optional topping: sprinkles!


  1. In a large bowl, whisk milk, sugar, vanilla and salt together until combined. Go scoop up some fresh (clean!) snow, and immediately stir it into the milk mixture until you reach your desired consistency. (The ice cream should be fluffy, not runny. But it melts quickly, so dive in quickly.)
  2. Top with sprinkles or other ice cream toppings if desired, and enjoy!
