Back-to-School Tips from Miss Rachel!

Welcome back to another school year!  Welcome back to waking up early, following a morning routine, fitting in homework, sports, chores and everything else life brings!

For many kids, managing time and following a routine is nearly impossible.  Their brains are still developing this higher level thinking skill (Executive Function).  In order to help them be successful, sometimes we need to change the environment.  Changing simple things around the house can create great changes in children.  Throughout the year we will provide some tips for helping with time management and organization at home and school.

For now, start with compassion!

Let your child know you understand how painful it must be to struggle with getting things done.  It is not his/her fault they may struggle with time management, it involves the wiring in the brain.  Let them know you will work together on strategies to help him/her and…THE WHOLE FAMILY!   Mentioning that the whole family will be working together on this may help take some of the stress from your child.

Keep in mind: You can’t do what you can’t do.  Your child isn’t an adult yet.  Be patient.  We’re all in this together!

Tea Time at SFS

Becoming involved in philanthropy by supporting local business is needed now more than ever.  We wanted to send a BIG THANK YOU to Martha’s mom (a patient of Mr. B’s) who provided us with some great chairs for our clinicians and patients to use during their therapy sessions!

We even caught Miss Ellen and Mr. B during the lunch hour- having tea time with Elsa and Kermit. The chairs are so comfortable we’re even in them when we’re not working! Thank you again for this amazing gift, we are so appreciative.

What to Expect

Our Facility SFS Therapies feels more like a home than a medical facility and that’s how we like it.  Our facility is warm, comfortable, and calm – not industrial, institutional, or cold. Since our practice treats patients throughout the entire scope of life we have made the space appealing to both children and seniors.  If […]
