As you may know, Izzy was a beloved friend of ours that passed away in November 2023. Her birthday is June 3rd. We hope to celebrate Izzy the best way we know how, by giving to a cause she cared about. If you knew Izzy, you knew she was the very best gift giver, she loved a good celebration, and she loved dogs!

If you would like to join in the gift giving in honor of her birthday, please click the link below to help support Pet Helpers, a local no-kill shelter.  https://pethelpers.org/donate/

May is also Pediatric Feeding Disorder Month! 🍼🍽️🥣🥤
Check out what feeding therapy looks like at HCPT and keep reading/swipe to see if your child may benefit:

Feeding disorders are problems with a range of eating activities that may or may not include problems with swallowing. Pediatric feeding disorder (PFD) is “impaired oral intake that is not age-appropriate and is associated with medical, nutritional, feeding skill, and/or psychosocial dysfunction” (Goday et al., 2019).

Some signs your child may benefit from Feeding Therapy:
-refusing age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate foods or liquids
-accepting a restricted variety or quantity of foods or liquids
-displaying disruptive or inappropriate mealtime behaviors for developmental levels
-failing to master self-feeding skills expected for developmental levels
-failing to use developmentally appropriate feeding devices and utensils
-experiencing less than optimal growth

Holy City Pediatric Therapy honors and encourages a Total Communication Approach!

What is a total communication approach?
💙 A method that incorporates multiple modes of communication to enhance a child’s language learning experience and support overall communication.
💙 Modes of communication can include both verbal and non-verbal communication, including but not limited to: verbalizations, eye gaze, facial expressions, gestures, sign-language, & augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

The goal is to encourage children to feel understood and support successful communicative interactions, even if they are not currently using their voice to speak.

Try out a total communication approach today!
👋🏼 If saying “bye” at the end of a fun activity is tricky, try giving your child the option to wave instead.
👋🏼 If responding to yes/no questions are difficult, model a head nod/shake or signs for yes/no.

✨ It is important to remember that we all have the desire to communicate, and we all so in our own ways. Prelinguistic or non-verbal communication is the basis for communication development ✨

Check out our friend here using Talk Tiles (verbal output buttons) to request his preferred shows, snacks, and music.

Did you know there are two ways for your child to develop language — analytic language development and gestalt language development. Both ways are a completely normal and natural way to develop language!

Gestalt language learners pick up on intonation and process language in chunks (scripts/echolalia) rather than one word at a time. Try to eliminate questioning and focus on connection by following the child’s lead! Play what they want to play and model language naturally along the way.

Tips for Parents:
⁃ Always acknowledge your child’s scripts and accept them as communication. You can do this with a smile, head nod, or saying “yeah.”
⁃ Silence is golden! It gives the child time to process and allows you to hear their own spontaneous language.

April showers bring May flowers, and… National Speech-Language-Hearing Month!

Our speech-language pathologists can help your child in the following areas:
• Communication, including speech production, fluency, language, augmentative communication, cognition, voice, resonance, and hearing.

Check this out!!! ☀️

The Handwriting Without Tears program uses the Mat Man character to help children learn the basics of handwriting through a fun and interactive approach. Children learn to draw Mat Man as a precursor to forming letters, helping them develop fine motor skills,and the ability to break down complex shapes into simpler ones! It’s an engaging way to lay the foundation for handwriting success!

what we expect to see when kids eat vs what we get

Let’s talk about the importance of letting kids get messy while eating!!! It supprts sensory development by providing children with varied tactile experiences as they explore different textures and temperatures of food which is essential for sensory integration. It helps improve their hand skills, and teaches them how to feed themselves. It also makes eating fun and stress-free, which helps kids feel more comfortable trying new foods!!!

Today we lament, we grieve, we remember, and we honor the loss of someone we love dearly. We were blessed to walk alongside this spunky friend as she battled everything life threw at her. We will miss our friend but the lessons she taught us will forever be imprinted on this clinic and its people. Lessons like, be yourself always, don’t back down from a fight, there’s nothing that a good craft or game of uno can’t fix, and don’t lose sight of the sweet simple things in life…like dogs and coffee.

It’s officially the Holiday season here! 🎄This year our giving tree has 100 stockings with a list of items to go to the children served by Lowcountry Orphan Relief! This year alone, Lowcountry Orphan Relief has served thousands of children impacted by abuse or neglect, ensuring they have access to the goods and services they need. If you’d like to help this incredible organization in providing necessities to these children, grab a stocking (or as many as you would like), get the items on the list, and bring them back unwrapped to us by December 15th, and we will deliver them to Lowcountry Orphan Relief!

A few notes:
❄️You do not have to get every item on the list; do what you feel comfortable with.
❄️Please do not wrap the gifts.
❄️No toys, puzzles, or games please.
❄️Don’t worry too much about sizes of clothing. The right size will be given to each child in their care kit.

Thank you for getting into the giving season with us!
