Art Therapy heals at Nemours.

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.

 Located just south of downtown Orlando, (1717 S. Orange Ave., Suite 100 Orlando, FL), Nemours Children’s Clinic, is a kid-friendly outpatient pediatric clinic providing specialized pediatric care for families in Central Florida.  Their pediatric teams work together with your child’s pediatrician or family care provider,  to achieve the very best outcome for your child. One of their most important partnerships is with you — because they believe in family-centered care. That means they value your input and welcome your questions so that, together, we can help your child grow up healthy.

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.
