Autumn, also known as Fall, has a fairly basic definition: the season between summer and winter. A long time ago, the season was called Harvest. Today, many of us favor calling it Fall, as that brings to mind the fleeting beauty of color-changing leaves falling from deciduous trees, floating slowly to the ground on crisp, cool, and sometimes rainy days. Whatever you call it, this is a very busy season here at the clinic! Here’s the latest on our monthly art project, the Feeding Clinic, and our Annex expansion.
October Art Project
These chilly and often wet days lend themselves to being indoors, bundling up in sweaters and making messy art! We’re making leaf print art here in the clinic this month. Mix the colors, pick a leaf to press into your paint palette, and then press it onto a piece of paper, like a stamp. The vein structure and shape of the leaf make a beautiful impression on paper.
Sure, you can watch leaves fall off of real trees in the great outdoors, but inside our clinic, we’re putting these leaves on a paper tree in our waiting room!You can make more than one, so please enjoy this autumn-themed craft with your clinician. Make at least one leaf print to add to our waiting room tree, and one to take home if you like how it looks.
What’s a Feeding Clinic?
Great question! Our OT Christina and SLP Kaitlin work with:
- Infants who may struggle with bottle or breastfeeding
- Children who have challenging mealtime and eating behaviors
- Families wanting guidance in providing positive and supportively mealtimes for kids
- Children who are underweight or have complex medical needs
If you have additional questions, please read this post or just give us a call!
You might have noticed that our clinic has been bursting at the seams over the last few months with the addition of new clinicians, more OT spaces, and Feeding Clinic. We have now expanded into our new space in the suite next door and we are so happy! Currently, Lori, Jenny, and the Feeding Clinic have treatment spaces in the annex. Sarah is gradually moving her office over and will be in there fully once Laura returns from her maternity leave. We do ask that families continue to check in at the main front desk in our original space and make payments and schedule changes as you always have. If your clinician uses the new space, they will come over and meet you when it’s time to get started with your session.
Enjoy this transitional season and thank you for being patient with our growth and all of the changes. We appreciate you!
