When children learn that they are in control of what they draw, paint, or color and that they are the ones giving power to the paintbrush, their ability to maneuver wrist, fingers and hands has the ability to improve! Assessing how many pieces there are of something (like a puzzle) teaches our children math. When they play with various textures and materials, they are in turn experimenting with certain forms of science.
The most pivotal role of all of art, is the ability to see first hand what you are capable of creating, thus supplying you with the confidence necessary to propel yourself forward.
Swim for the sun in more ways than one and create something with someone you love today. #WorldWatercolorMonth #CraftsWithMissK
Sure, we all have our tough days-but ensuring you’re participating in consistent therapy will do nothing but benefit you. In addition to “getting what you paid for” you’re also cultivating a grander bond between you and your Speech-Language Pathologist. In reality, you won’t see much progression if you’re not here participating. We couldn’t be more appreciative to the patients and parents who are continuously supporting their “Plans of care” and showing up to their appointments- on time and ready to work. Patients you can set a clock by? Yeah, we’re definitely not your average clinic.
“When I hear “Swim for the sun in more ways than one” I not only hear a challenge, but a goal, and moreover, a purpose for my day. I know that when I am preparing posts to publish to Social Media, wiping fingerprints off the counter tops, or calling provider offices to follow up on paperwork; I’m doing exactly that. I start my day seeing how many opportunities I’m able meet-and then I meet them.”

In order to better understand Aphasia and how it affects its sufferers, we wanted to share this diagram (Courtesy of Neuroscience & Cloud) displaying the Broca’s area of the brain as well as the Wernicke’s area, the Primary auditory area as well as the motor area. These four parts of our brain are absolutely fundamental to us, in all aspects of speech, language and communication. The Broca’s area is known to be directly-linked to speech production as well as language processing in some cases. The Wenicke’s area focuses more on the actual understanding and comprehension of speech itself. Say you damage the Wernicke’s area of the brain, your process of speech has the possibility of being severely damaged. On the other hand, damage to the Broca’s area may even render you speechless.
