Thank you Carrie Pittman Art for sharing your talents with Easterseals, where we are creating solutions to change the lives of children & adults with disabilities! The progress made during Occupational Therapy while having fun is amazing! Pictured here is one of our wonderful Occupational Therapists, Mrs. Jones!! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

We were so glad to visit Full Life Ahead at Children’s Harbor, Lake Martin recently with our Virtual Reality Career Exploration. We discussed interests and hobbies and how to find possible jobs matching their interests. It was a great day! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

PT Month
We’re still celebrating Physical Therapy Month!! Making PT fun with bubbles! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

Physical Therapy sessions are fun too!! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions
Physical Therapy sessions are fun too!! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

Here’s a Physical Therapy session at our Pediatric Therapy Clinic. McKinley is practicing her walking with a gait trainer. After her PT session, McKinley proudly reported back to her Mom, “Mommy, I did it without the seat, all by myself!” This is Easterseals!! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

A look back at Water Week from last week!! We had a blast in therapy with all our kiddos! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

Following along as we celebrate Speech Therapy Month! Embedding actions during play is fun and a great way to help language “click”! By jumping on the trampoline as the SLP labels the action, the action instantly has meaning. Commenting and narrating what your child does throughout the day can be a helpful way to boost language use and understanding! #creatingsolutions #eastersealsbham #speechtherapy

Take a look at a Speech Therapy session with Ms. Lindsay! Using multiple forms of language is important for developing communication. Pausing, labeling, and modeling language without expectation allows opportunities for interaction. Whether AAC or spoken language, everyone’s voice deserves to be heard! #creatingsolutions #eastersealsbham

As we close out Occupational Therapy Month, enjoy this video of Bubble Stimulation during an OT session with Ms. Tosha! “My favorite part of being an OT is creating personal connections with kids and their families and setting the foundation for a child’s growth and development. I love finding creative ways to challenge a child and build their skills in a way that makes the most sense for them!” - Tosha Gaines, MS, OTR/L #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

Trying new foods with Mrs. Mary Grace, OTR/L, by smelling, kissing, licking, and tasting for Feeding Therapy success!! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

Enjoy this video of Mrs. Mary Grace, one of our OTs, in honor of Occupational Therapy Month. Watch how she makes working on scanning & fine motor skills FUN!! “One of my favorite parts of being a Pediatric Occupational Therapist is getting to use the occupation of play as a form of therapy! Play helps build coordination, strength, fine motor skills, and improve functional independence with everyday activities like getting dressed, eating a meal, brushing your teeth, and navigating the environment.” - Mary Grace Jones, OTR/L #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions #pediatricot

We are pleased to share our new Sensory Room at our Pediatric Clinic!! We are thankful to the Miller Family and Phillips Family, who financially supported our Sensory Room designed by Kulture City. Look at the video and see just how amazing this Sensory Room is! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

A quick look at Occupational Therapy! #eastersealsbham #creatingsolutions

Welcome our newest Easterseals magician! Did you know that even magic is therapy? You may see a very cool trick, but we see in-hand manipulation, eye-hand coordination, memory, and executive functioning skills that transcend past magic to all other valued occupations. Ms. Darian was trained by the best, Magician Kevin Spencer ( Magic Therapy), to further support our little magician. #creatingsolutions #eastersealsbham
