Benefits of Sign Language

Communicating with your pre-verbal child………Benefits of Sign Language.

American Sign Language (ASL) is a beneficial support for your child’s speech, language, and overall development. ASL has been proven not only to impact natural development, speech, and language, but also improve I.Q and enhance interactions with your child’s environment. By utilizing sign language with your child, research has shown closer parent to baby bonds and more feelings of “being in tune” with each other. Additionally, sign language allows for fewer moments of distress for your child due to the ability to participate in pre/non-verbal communication, increased excitement and opportunities to communicate, increased attention and overall learning skills, as well as enhanced creativity and curiosity about the environment. ASL can serve as a bridge for the child that is bilingual and may be learning a new language. In regards to speech and language development, ASL can provide for a smooth transition from gestures to speaking, improved vocabulary and confidence, enhanced use of adjectives and adverbs, empowered earlier reading and recognition of sight words, and increased overall expressive and receptive language skills. Overall, sign language can help your child to decrease frustrations and better enhance his/her abilities to perform in all environments.

American Sign Language (ASL) is a beneficial support for your child’s speech, language, and overall development. ASL has been proven not only to impact natural development, speech, and language, but also improve I.Q and enhance interactions with your child’s environment.  The attached flyer provides valuable information about sign language misconceptions, benefits and more!  Happy signing!

Thank Social Workers!

The staff at CTP would like to express how very grateful we are for the work that our social workers do to help enhance the lives of children and families in Boise and Meridian.

Thank Social Workers!

The month of March has been proclaimed by the Idaho legislature as Social Work Recognition Month. This year’s theme is “Social Work Paves the Way for Change” and it was selected to convey what the social work profession has done to bring about positive changes in society and for individuals.

CTP thanks the almost 4,000 licensed social workers in Idaho for their dedication to making a difference in the day-to-day lives of Idahoan’s by helping to build, support and empower positive family and community relationships.

Please join me in recognizing our CTP social workers for their tireless dedication to helping make profound differences in the lives of children and their families.

Miss Amazing – Reach for the Stars

Miss AmazingIt’s been an AMAZING year for 13 year old Ani Besteder, the reigning 2014 Idaho Miss Amazing Preteen Queen.   After winning the crown in Idaho, Ani went on to the national competition in Omaha and placed 3rd in her age group. “It feels amazing,” said Ani at the 2014 pageant. “It’s great to make new friends here and see some familiar faces.”

Miss AmazingMiss Amazing is not just a beauty contest, it’s a program that encourages participants to dream big and reach their goals. It celebrates the abilities of girls and women with disabilities and supports learning of social and communication skills throughout the process.

Children’s Therapy Place (CTP) therapist, Stephanie Schoenfeld (COTA) co-leads a weekly occupational therapy group and has witnessed Ani’s extraordinary growth in self-confidence and social skills. Miss Stephanie commented, “It has been exciting to see Ani gain independence with activities of daily living. This independence has provided her with improved social skills, including the ability to initiate conversation and improved interactions with her peers.” Ani now has a new personal goal in the area of public speaking…. she’s looking forward to working in the community with Miss Stephanie to educate children about autism.

Miss AmazingWhen asked how therapy has helped Ani, her mother, Amy commented, “Ani’s skills are always changing and improving and I think that’s just the coolest thing. Her life has been changed for the better with the support of the amazing therapists at CTP.”

Miss Amazing Pageants prove that the world is a much better place when the talents and ambitions of all people are celebrated and valued. CTP celebrates Miss Amazing 2014, Ani Besteder, and all children with disabilities who inspire us all to reach for the stars!

The 2015 Idaho Miss Amazing Pageant will be held March 27-28, 2015 in Nampa, Idaho.
