November 2019 – It’s crisp out and our thoughts turn next to our blessings and for what we give thanks. Bright Heart Foundation has been getting back all kinds of love from therapists, nurses, doctors and families.
Here’s a sampling of the harvest we are giving thanks for this year!
“Tummy time is such a valuable activity for all of the kiddos I see. Having the donation of equipment from Bright Heart has enabled me to offer varied play scenarios for the kiddos I see especially through the use of mirrors. The kiddos I see love to see themselves and having a mirror increases the duration they tolerate on their tummy and promotes visual development as well. Thank you Bright Heart!” – Occupational Therapist
“A 3 year old little girl has never been able to move her arms enough to play with toys, but she learned to activate the ultimate switch quickly since only minimal movement/pressure is required, so she can now play independently with switch toys! She was so happy to be able to play the music herself! And a bonus, using the ultimate switch helped her learn to better control the movement of her arms and taught her to move them more, so when she went to her AAC evaluation at Bill Wilkerson, she was able to activate the Big Mack switch easily! The SLP at Bill Wilkerson is ordering her her own Big Mack switch for communication. Her mom was so proud!” – Physical Therapist
