The Importance of Positive Communication to Children with Disabilities

The Power of Language
Our word choices have a tremendous impact on those around us. Children, especially, are deeply influenced by the language surrounding them – who they become is based on who they are learning to be. The staff of Shriners Hospitals for Children® understands the importance of building confidence and self-esteem in our patients at an early age. Our staff recognizes that while working with children with disabilities, it is imperative to help them develop a strong positive attitude so they will have the confidence to pursue their dreams. To accomplish this, being mindful of the effect language has on children is critical.

Hospital recognized for excellent patient experience

Six-year-old Djatou made the journey of a lifetime, traveling from her remote village in the west African country Ivory Coast to Shriners Children’s™ Ohio to treat burns sustained to her head, face, arm and hand. She was burned two years ago after accidentally falling into the family’s cooking fire. Her eye has remained exposed since then.

Shriners Children’s Ohio | 4-year-old Avery Returns Home!

I hope you’ll take a moment to watch a video of 4-year-old Avery (pictured below) on the day she was able to go home to her family. She was severely burned in a fiery car accident in April. When she arrived at our facility in June, she couldn’t sit up, let alone walk. As you’ll see in this video, she can now do all that and more. I couldn’t be more proud of her and our amazing medical team. It really shows why we do what we do. 4-year-old Avery was all smiles on the day she was able to return home.
