[03/16/20]   In light of Governor Hutchinson's announcement that Arkansas schools will be closed, here is an update on how Fayette-Kids Counseling will operate this week.

We understand that there are a variety of concerns including health and safety as well as concerns about receiving mental health care for you and your family. Fayette-Kids Counseling will continue to operate as normal this coming week under the guidelines below, but as always, please reach out to us with any questions.

Lobby, Drop Off, and Pick Up This Week:
Under no circumstances are parents or other children permitted to wait in the lobby this week while their student is in session. We respectfully ask that you wait in your car.

As always, students are welcome to come inside on their own. If your child must be brought in, do not bring siblings or other adults in with you.

Please make every attempt to pick up your child on time.

Transitions at the beginning and end of therapy will be quick and we will be happy to provide any updates on the session via phone, secure messaging on your client portal, or email at your request.

Cancellations and Scheduling:
Fayette-Kids Counseling will continue to operate as normal this coming week. We will be preparing for the option of moving to Telehealth over Spring Break.

If you feel the need to keep your child home for ANY REASON, we respect that and will not be collecting late cancellation fees during this time. We do ask that you let us know ahead of time if you will not attend a scheduled appointment.

Please do not bring your child if he/she is showing signs of illness or has been exposed to someone with illness of any kind.

Telehealth:
Fayette-Kids Counseling is preparing to offer Telehealth to clients and families that are opting to not come into the office. As of now, we are continuing to offer in person therapy appointments, but we will continue to take advice and heed all recommendations given by the CDC.

We are currently following our flu season cleaning and sanitizing plan. We sanitize offices at the beginning and end of each day. Between each appointment all offices, toys, and other therapeutic tools are sanitized. We ask that all clients wash their hands before entering their session. We practice proper hand washing and social distancing at all times. We are also instructing and encouraging proper measures for safely coughing in-office

*Please check with your insurance provider to see if Telehealth is covered by your insurance plan. If Telehealth is not covered, but is recommended by the CDC or you choose to participate in Telehealth instead of traditional therapy appointments, a sliding scale will be offered to help offset costs for therapy.

Please keep a look out in your email, visit our page, or look on your client portal for any updates about business practices during this time. As always, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you!

How can individuals with dyslexia move from distress to DE-STRESS?

We’ve shared some important things with you this week about the behavioral, social, and emotional aspects that accompany dyslexia. If you are the parent of a dyslexic child you’ve no doubt experienced the gamut of emotions along with your student. The connection between dyslexia, anxiety, and stress is very real.

Our students have a lot on their plate and the responsibilities of school can take an emotional toll.

Please don’t hesitate to contact Lexicon to address your student’s intervention needs and Fayette-Kids Counseling to address your student’s behavioral and emotional needs.

Today is World Mental Health Day and we would like to share with you some behavioral, social, and emotional aspects that accompany dyslexia. If you are the parent of a dyslexic child you’ve no doubt experienced the gamut of emotions along with your student.

Please note that not all children with dyslexia experience these difficulties. For instance, some children with dyslexia have strong social skills and use them to compensate for their other shortcomings.

“I can remember the first time I realized something was wrong. I can remember the first time I was told I have dyslexia. I can remember being in 1st or 2nd grade when my teacher pulled me out of the hallway into a small classroom. She sat me down and put 5 magnetic letters on the board. And she said, ‘Piper, read this to me. What do these 5 letters say?’ And I looked at it and I kept staring at it. And I said ‘I’m not really sure what that says’. And she said ‘Ok, that’s ok. But that’s your name’. I remember this feeling like it happened this morning.” - Piper Otterbein at TEDx Youth

It’s no coincidence that AD/HD Awareness Day falls in this month. Did you know that an estimated 30% of dyslexics are also diagnosed with AD/HD? This can complicate things for our dyslexic kiddos and add to the stress they experience.

Dyslexics often amaze us with their creativity and the way they solve problems. But when they miss a homework assignment, forget a word they just read, dirty up untied shoelaces, or just flat out can’t get out what they want to say, the ugly side of it rears its head.

We know how important finding the right dyslexia interventionist is. And it is just as important to find a counselor that is well-versed in learning disabilities, especially dyslexia and AD/HD. That is why Lexicon Speech, Language, & Reading is proud to partner with Fayette-Kids Counseling to help bring awareness to the emotional struggles that accompany learning disabilities. Stay informed, stay connected, and seek out the answers you need at Lexicon and at Fayette-Kids Counseling.
