When I hear “Swim for the Sun in More Ways Than One…”

“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.”

-Brittany Lopez Social Media Manager #ClevelandClinicWithMrB #FlashbackFriday

Broca’s & Wernicke’s

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.

Late Attendance and Cancellations

When you’re running late to an appointment, you may be sending a message to the person or the organization you’re meeting with that you lack respect for them or are a poor planner. You may not only be sending them a message that you disrespect your commitment to them, you may be saying “I don’t respect that your time is valuable.” At SFS, we do our best to respect your time…. Please respect ours…. Late attendance and cancellations wreak havoc with our schedules, our clinician’s, and our admin staff. Swim for the sun in more ways than one and be here when it matters most. #ConsistencyIsKey
