🪄Our therapists are getting ready for Back to School too !!!📝📚🏫

📸Pictured here are SOAL’s lovely💕 speech therapists: Mrs. Charm, Ms. Neda and Mrs. Angie running into each other at a local head start where several of our patients are treated.

🍭It’s not too often these sweet encounters take place due to our therapists’ busy schedules and different areas covered within each patient caseload.📇

🖇However, once together it’s always great to collaborate and brainstorm on ideas, strategies, and fun activities to incorporate in our sessions especially for the new school year 🍎🗓!!

😎 Nothing says SUMMER like sq**rt no guns and toy cars ☀️🔫🚗

“R” and Ms. Kim had fun in OT while racing cars down a track powered by sq**rt guns.

This activity is great for strengthening hands, hand eye coordination, peer to peer play or parallel play and it’s another fun way to cool off in this heat!

Our team is growing! Say hi to Maci Labatut - our newest SLPA employee.

“My name is Maci and I moved to Austin last year after living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana my entire life! I graduated from Louisiana State University where I fell in love with speech and decided to major in Communication Sciences and Disorders. In my free time you’ll find me on the water! Lazy days on the boat, adventures on the paddle board on Lady Bird Lake, or at the pool. I’ve always had a passion for working with kids and I’m excited to continue my journey as an SLPA with SOAL!”

We look forward to having her on our team!

Happy Birthday to one of our favorite SLPA’s in the company!! 💕🥳 Mrs. Angie is an amazing Speech Language Pathologist Assistant at SOAL.

“Mrs Angie and “A” having a ball fishing for ducklings!!🐥

Keeping cool in this Texas heat and having fun all while targeting multiple expressive language goals: is what’s on the agenda!!😎

“A” practices expanding age appropriate 4 word utterances when responding to function of objects commonly seen in our home environment. “A” was also able to label preposition of ducklings such as inside, outside, on, off, etc. Additionally, “Mrs. Angie” prompts “A” to exercise good hand/eye coordination and fine motor skills while reeling in each duckling out of the water.

Mrs. Molly and “M” are working on gait mechanics and motor control with the use of colored spots for visual cues.
🏃🏽‍♀️🟣🔵🟠
Proper gait (walking) requires coordinated effort of the feet, knees, and hips while motor control refers to controlled voluntary movements.
🚶🏽‍♀️🔵🟠🟡
Performing this activity in different directions (forward, left, right, backward) challenges and isolates different muscle groups essential to developing control with and against gravity (concentric and eccentric control).

Today’s OT sensory activity is about Proprioception.

👉🏻 What is it? Proprioception is the body’s awareness of its position in space.
👉🏻 Proprioceptive SEEKING may present as a child playing rough with others or toys, frequently climbing, jumping or stomping, poor body awareness (sitting or standing too close to others), frequently chewing objects, plus many others
👉🏻Various ways OT provides proprioceptive input in order to regulate a child’s sensory system is by doing obstacle courses, providing compressions, jumping on a trampoline, or by bouncing on a ball as you see “A” and Mrs. Josefina doing in the video. Look at how much fun he is having!

“E” and miss Kendyl have been working hard at improving balance and trunk control. By using a hurdle, E has to stand on 1 foot, requiring core strength and stability to maintain balance.
Using a puzzle, or other highly motivating toys, allows for repetition and keeps the activity engaging. 🧩 🔴🟩

02/02/2022

Let’s talk SENSORY! During the month of February, we want to highlight various types of sensory input that OT utilizes to help regulate a child’s sensory system so he or she can be more independent in their environment.

This week is about input. The vestibular system’s job is to provide awareness of movement and balance. A child may seek vestibular input by constantly moving, shaking their head back and forth, have difficulty leaving the swings or slide on the playground, or poor balance. Vestibular input also helps to improve general clumsiness and low tone.

“V” and Ms. Kimberly did a vestibular warm up to start the OT session by swinging on a platform swing.

Other ways to provide vestibular:
- Slides
- Scooter boards
- Turning upside down
- Rolling on a therapy ball
- Rocking chair

🏀 attention to task
🏀 hand eye coordination
🏀 dynamic balance
🏀 core stability
🏀 hip strength
🏀 shoulder stability
