The arts join together with medicine in a unique form of therapy that has proven to be beneficial for people with cerebral palsy.
This particular form of therapy for cerebral palsy was started in Pennsylvania by employees at Avenues adult vocational rehabilitation program.
With the Creative Hands pottery program, which began last month, employees have been working with pliable clay.
According to Denise Keitsock, the supervisor of the program, working with clay can not only enhance creativity, but it can also have therapeutic benefits.
Working with clay can reportedly increase and improve the strength of patients living with disabilities like cerebral palsy.
“It’s also a really good way to build confidence and self-esteem, and a sense of achievement,” explains Keitsock. “The pottery workshop is one of the many things employees at Avenues are learning which will help them seek further employment in the workforce.”
Avenues is a part of Lessie’s Greenhouse, which was started by Lessie Weaver in 1952, whose family founded United Cerebral Palsy of Schuylkill in Pennsylvania.
Employees at Avenues participate in all kinds of activities like planting and creating pottery to help them better control their muscles.
