National “Drink through a Straw Day”

Today is “National “Drink through a Straw Day”. To some, this may be a fun-filled day to showcase your undying love for that strawberry piña colada. But, to us here at Sfs Therapies, this day has an entirely different meaning. For many who have a feeding or swallowing disorder, use of a straw could be a way of life. Following a stroke, brain tumor or injury, the muscles of the lips and mouth may be weak, requiring a straw to drink. Elders diagnosed with dementia may find drinking with a straw to be easier, as it gives them more control over the liquid. Children diagnosed with Down Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy can use straws to improve the strength and movement in their lips and tongue. So, before you take drinking through a straw for granted, remember those who can’t live without it.

Setting the Foundation

 

“They’ll even be late to their own funeral”, Funny, but true.  It’s surprising more people aren’t putting a greater emphasis of this characteristic into the foundation of learning for their young ones.  Children learn what they live, and our children pick these habits up from us at an early age.  We love seeing patients arriving early for their appointments.  We think Indigo may have something to do with it…we’re #NotYourAverageClinic.

Home Practice

Relying on our therapy sessions to be the only source of assistance through your journey- isn’t realistic or empowering. Reading at home is a wonderful suggestion from our Clinician Miss Julie to help improve your children’s language, speech and communication from the comfort of your very own home.

After all, is there such a thing as too much progress? We think not. We’re #NotYourAverageClinic.
