hey boys and girls!

As you better know, there was a huge tornado in Joplin, MO last month. It completely destroyed St. John’s Hospital, an elementary school, a high school and did serious damage to numerous other school buildings. This is kind of our turf people, so step up!

Things the SLPs still need:

PRK pictures, play money, small massager for facial stimulation, therapy mirror, Pediatric Swallowing and Feeding: Assessment and Management by Joan Arvedson, See scape, listen aiders, magnifying glasses, object boxes, Like object box, Brubaker Aphasia Book, Cognitive Reorganization Revised, Laryngeal mirrors, ANY Pediatric items.

Send donations to: St. John’s Therapy Centers ATTN: Stacy DeSutter 1531 W. 32nd St., Joplin, MO 64804. Monetary donations should be made out to “Mercy Health of Joplin Foundation” and please put in the memo box that the money is for Speech Therapy.

Get your professors and NSSLHA chapter involved if you can! They are looking at $151 million to repair and rebuild for the schools alone. It can be something as simple as a bake sale.
