Medical Alert Month

Often times following a stroke, certain areas of the brain have the potential to operate without issue, and others with minimal issues to say the least. Sufferers who experienced a left hemisphere brain injury have a higher possibility of exhibiting a severe difficulty producing speech. On the other hand, sufferers with a right hemisphere brain injury have a higher possibility to experience weakness or an adjustment in sensations over the left side of their body.

Each case is different as well as unique. Find the answers you need today by visiting: #MedicalAlertMonth

Imaginative Play

Whatever happened to imaginative play? Remember setting the sheets across your living room in hopes to create the world’s most tremendous tent, or carefully tiptoeing from tables to chairs to avoid the molten lava on the floor from getting you? Perhaps not, but most of us are familiar with creating adventure with limited resources. Today more and more children are experiencing introductions to technology at astonishing early ages. Ever seen a 2 year old with a tablet? Our Clinicians suggests limiting the devices available to your child and engaging in creative play possibly in the form of a kitchen set, or a grocery store. What your child loves can be used as a great to play, and improve on their speech,language an communication. Forget the TV as the babysitter and see what goals you and your family can reach with actively engaging the mind. Remember, we’re sharing insider tips all month long so don’t forget to check back for more! #BackToSchoolMonth#EarlyInterventionIsKey

Masters with the Master

The staff employed by the school district and the clinicians on staff here at Sfs differ in many ways, most notably “ALL” of the Clinicians on staff at Sfs have their Masters degree in Speech, Language, and Communication. In celebration of back to school month, and in addition to the services you may already be receiving from CCSD-Our own Clinicians wanted to assist in engaging your child’s vocabulary. Even if you’re finding your child is using a minimum of three words, find fun in making those three words count! It’s possible that (although sequential word building is important) words like “if, and, but, because” won’t instill importance since they are not directly related with something your child finds important. Instead, try saying and repeating words that matter to your child like “candy”, or “dinosaur”. Children are guaranteed to learn words like these 10 times faster because “car” matters when attempting to describe their favorite toy or solicit a drive to the park. We’re looking forward to sharing back-to-school tips with you all August long. Stay tuned or more! We’re swimming for the sun in more ways than one by sharing our insider secrets-how are YOU swimming? #BackToSchoolMonth
