Screen Free Clinic
“Life is a sensory experience. During every moment of our life we experience the world through our varied sensory systems. Sensory experiences drive our behavior and contribute to the organization of our thoughts and emotions.”
-Teresa A. May-Benson
We are excited to announce that we now have Screen Free Waiting Room activities. Family is important to us and included in our therapeutic and business objectives. We are encouraging our families to put down their screens while they are in the waiting room with their kids and try some of our fun new activities that inspire interactive and creative experiences that benefit children’s healthy development. With these activities we are attempting to influence more family connection and hope to inspire less screen time at home.Studies have shown that children who watch less TV and spend less time on screens are more likely to read well, attend longer, have higher self esteem, and choose activities that will help them be more socially, emotionally and physically fit. Each week, American children spend more time in front of a screen than they do in school. We will also be providing educational articles and other interesting parent information about the effects of screen time on the developing brain and body. These articles include: blogs from professionals in the healthcare field, parent guidelines, and scholarly articles and abstracts. We are taking a small step towards addressing this technology epidemic, and hope that we can inspire healthy boundaries when it comes to technology.
