At Walter Lawson Children's Home, daily programs emphasize four
areas of skill development:
Positioning and passive
range of motion
Designed to promote the child's purposeful interaction with his/her
environment, stimulation involving the sense of touch, sight, motion, hearing,
smell and taste promotes the child's awareness of self and surroundings.
Through these carefully designed programs we foster and enhance each child's
awareness of, and involvement in, dressing, eating, bathing, and other
necessary personal functions.
Language and Communication
Through daily living activities, we provide many varied opportunities for acquiring
expressive and receptive language skills to develop usable communications
systems and interact with their peers and staff.
Therapeutic positioning and passive ROM helps promote use of normal patterns
and functional experiences. We choose the best position for the individual to
provide pressure relief and comfort, limited fatigue, improved breathing
posture and digestion. Various positioning techniques promote better use of
their hands and eyes. Various positioning techniques promote better use of
