Our Collaboration with The rehabilitation institute of chicago
Our work within a rehab facility is unique. When we work with a child in therapy sessions, we meet them within their primary learning language: play. Often therapy can be just a series of exercises, however, when a clown enters into a session the exercises become a game, a play, a journey. We don't seek to distract patients from their problems. We engage them. We give them a platform and an ally to continue their fight.
THE REHABILITATION INSTITUTE OF CHICAGO
For the past two years, we have been clowning on the pediatric floor of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago where we work with children within their Clinical sessions. Our mission is to facilitate the achievement of each patient's therapeutic goals as well as create a dynamic environment of play. We hope to work in tandem with this wonderful institution to help encourage and add buoyancy to their mission of advancing human ability.
