I went to the dedication ceremony at Nemours Children's Cinic for the art therapy program. Jill Mundry addressed the crowd gathered for the dedication. Creative volunteers share their passion and bring smiles to children and families.Creativity of any kind, doing arts and crafts, listening to music, or writing a story, helps kids explore and identify feelings, deal with emotions, and even get better, faster. In fact, it’s been well documented that creative therapy can help:
- improve cognitive skills
- express feelings
- increase awareness of others/self
- enhance emotional and physical well being
- improve self-satisfaction
- manage pain
- improve speech and language skills
Nemours is fortunate to have a lively creative arts program that include dedicated volunteers and local artists lead the kids in painting, drawing, and other fun activities in the waiting areas.
They offer Central Florida’s only nationally-accredited Cystic Fibrosis Center state-of-the-art Sleep Center studies a full spectrum of pediatric sleep disorders weight management consultation programs for kids ages three to 16. Nemours provides a commitment to family-centered car.
