Hannah’s Story

By Mary Njaramba, LPC, NCC, LCAS

Children respond differently to traumatic events and often need help in dealing with their feelings. “I don’t know what I’m going to do with her!” Hannah’s mother Janice* exclaimed to Nancy Dixon*, the therapist. “She used to love going to school. Now it’s a fight every morning just to get her on the bus. She argues over petty stuff like what clothes I pick for her to wear, or she cries and throws a temper tantrum right before the bus comes. “I don’t have a car, so if she misses the bus, that’s it. No school that day. I don’t have a job right now, and I think all she really wants is to be at home with me. “Her teacher just sent me a note this week about all the unexcused absences. If she stays out any more, they’re going to report me to the Department of Social Services. This can’t go on!” During this exchange, Hannah,* a petite 9-year-old with large brown eyes and wavy dark hair, sat close beside her mother on the large couch, feet propped high, cuddled tightly in a striped fleece blanket, saying nothing. “She does that a lot, especially around new people,” sighed Janice. Nancy consulted her notes. Hannah’s original assessment indicated that she had been diagnosed with both separation anxiety and non-specific depression. Following her diagnosis, she had been referred to a local behavioral health provider and recommended to Intensive In-Home (IIH) services to help her with her problems. “…Frequent temper tantrums, crying episodes, intensive attention-seeking behavior, excessive attachment to her mother, frequent absenteeism from school…,” the notes concluded. “She won’t sleep in her room by herself anymore. She says she sees little people coming out of the closet at night,” Janice said. “Sometimes she even wakes up screaming in the middle of the night,” Janice continued. “She’s afraid to be alone in the dark. I have to leave the light on for her to go to sleep. “I can’t even get her interested in going to (continued on next page)

sleepovers with her friends,” Janice stated, “unless we have them at her grandmother’s house. And even then, I have to be there, or she won’t go. I’m very worried! She should be having fun and doing things with other kids her age, not clinging to me all the time.” As the conversation continued, Nancy learned that and Hannah had not seen or heard from her biological father in over a year. Nancy was further concerned to hear that Hannah had also witnessed an incident of domestic violence involving Janice and her boyfriend some weeks prior to their visit. “I think we can help you, Hannah,” Nancy said, smiling at the child sitting quietly by her mother.

Over the next few weeks, the Intensive InHome (IIH) team set up a treatment plan for Hannah to address both her behavioral issues and the clinical diagnosis (depression). The treatment team included Nancy, other therapists, and a psychiatrist who prescribed appropriate medication to help Hannah sleep at night. With Janice’s consent, the team met with Hannah’s teacher and learned that she had been a bright, above-average student until the absenteeism started. Her teacher was willing to help in any way possible, and readily agreed to work with the team to help Hannah improve her performance in school. At the same time, Janice worked closely with the IIH team on enhancing her parenting skills to help minimize conflict over some of the issues that were contributing to Hannah’s absenteeism. For one week, Janice stayed strictly “hands off ” and allowed Hannah total freedom in selecting the clothing she wanted to wear to school. On the fifth day, Hannah happily told Nancy that her mom was letting her pick out her own clothes now. “No more crying episodes?” Nancy asked Janice during their session a month later. “No,” Janice reported, the relief evident in her voice. “It’s been a month now. She hasn’t missed school once. And best of all, her school performance is definitely improving.” Hannah also responded well to her medication and began sleeping peacefully throughout the night. After four months, she was able to wean off the medication with no ill effects. Regular counseling sessions helped her to understand and process her earlier fears and anxiety related to her mother’s safety at night. At the recommendation of Hannah’s therapy team, Janice enlisted Hannah’s help in “re-doing” her bedroom to make it a more attractive place to sleep in. Janice and Hannah excitedly planned a big shopping trip “just for Hannah.” First they visited the local hardware store, where Hannah got to choose the new paint colors for her room – along with her very own paintbrush! The next stop was the department store, where Hannah lingered over several displays before choosing a set of cheerful, colorful bedding to go with her new paint scheme. Hannah and her mom also repositioned her bed so that it faced away from the closet and added a night light, as the team had suggested. 8

“Why don’t you decorate that plain old closet door with some pictures of your favorite singers and movie stars?” Nancy asked Hannah during the following session. “Then, if you do wake up during the night, who’ll be looking right back at you? Your favorite stars!”

Helping Children Overcome Trauma* Children are at risk for trauma after witnessing or being involved in disasters, physical or sexual abuse, domestic violence, or loss of a loved one. Trauma is hurt or harm. It can be hurt to a person’s body (physical trauma). It can also be harm to a person’s mind (mental trauma). Children are very sensitive. They struggle to make sense of trauma. They also respond differently to traumas. They may have emotional reactions. They may hurt deeply. They may exhibit extreme behavior such as intense fear, withdrawal, lack of concentration, irritability, sleep problems, aggression, or flashbacks (“re-living” the traumatic event). Children may find it hard to recover from frightening experiences. They need support. Adult helpers can provide this support. This may help children resolve emotional problems.

How Parents Can Help DO: • Let children know you love them • Help them to understand the event was not their fault • Reassure them that you will take care of them, but only if you can; be honest • Let them know it’s okay for them to feel upset • Allow them to cry and feel sadness • Allow them to talk and write about their feelings • Let them draw pictures • Help children get medical care and counseling if needed • If children are having trouble sleeping: - Give them extra attention - Let them sleep with a light on - Let them sleep in your room (for a short time) • Try to keep normal routines, such as bed-time stories, eating dinner together, watching TV together, reading books, exercising, and playing games. If you can’t keep normal routines, make new ones together • Help children feel in control, by letting them make choices when possible (meals, picking out clothes,etc.) DON’T: • Expect children to be brave or tough • Make them discuss the event before they are ready • Get angry if they show strong emotions • Get upset if they begin bed-wetting, acting out, or thumbsucking. *Adapted from “Helping Children and Adolescents Cope with Violence and Disasters, National Institute of Mental Health, NIH Publication No. 08-3518, Rev. 2008.

Hannah promptly got to work and filled the door with magazine cut-outs of pop singers, animation heroes, and stars from her favorite movies. Alongside these photos she placed artwork of her own. She went on to spend numerous hours not just decorating the closet, but creating her own new artwork to hang in other places in her room. Janice also devised a fun system to reward Hannah for sleeping in her new room. She knew Hannah was incredibly fond of jelly beans. So each morning before the bus arrived, Janice made a little ceremony of presenting Hannah with “The Jelly Bean Award” for every night she slept in her new room. These small but positive changes made it much easier for Hannah to adjust to sleeping on her own. Hannah soon made the transition and began sleeping in her own room by her own choice. Nancy had earlier noted that Hannah loved reading and writing, so each week, a member of the therapy team took Hannah and Janice to the library. Hannah also enjoyed expressing herself through journaling. During her last session, the therapy team gave her a journal and encouraged her to keep writing. “You have a gift for writing,” Nancy told the young girl. Hannah beamed proudly as she accepted the journal.

Hannah Today

Hannah continues to grow and flourish. Last August, her teachers recommended that she skip a grade due to her excellent performance. As a result, Hannah moved directly from second grade to fourth grade! With Hannah’s issues resolved, Janice was able to focus on job hunting, find employment, and buy a car, thereby releasing her family from dependence on public transportation. Now Janice looks forward to returning home from work each day to relax and spend quality time with her children. The once shy, troubled child is now a confident fourth grader who is making straight A’s in all her subjects. She actively participates in several activities and after-school programs, and sings in the children’s choir at her church. Her improved self-esteem has led to her making new friends, and she enjoys spending time with them at school and after hours. And perhaps best of all, she eagerly looks forward to sleepovers at her new friends’ houses – and does not want her mom along to “spoil the fun”! HealthLink Resource Guide

Four-Legged Therapists: a new breed of caring By Kaye Moore with Carole Webber and Elizabeth Penny, LRT/CTRS

Pet-Assisted Therapy programs enhance education, health, and wellness programs.

Photo by Carole Webber

There’s

a new breed of therapist making the rounds these days in certain schools, hospitals, and patient care facilities across North Carolina. They wear ID badges on their daily rounds. They’re highly trained. Many of them have earned professional titles and certifications. They absolutely love their jobs. And they think the best medicine for anything is a cold nose and a wagging tail. Did we forget to mention something? Oh, yes…They’re dogs. The Human-Animal Bond Over the last few years, several educational and healthcare facilities in North Carolina have been taking a closer look at the nature of the human-animal bond and its potential role in the healing process. As a result, Pet-Assisted Therapy (PAT) programs continue to gain recognition and increased acceptance as a valid component and asset to traditional health and wellness programs. Numerous studies have shown that interaction such as petting, touching, and talking with animals can lower blood pressure, relieve stress, and ease depression. Even the simple act of petting an animal produces an automatic relaxation response and can lower stress levels. Sharing time with an animal can decrease feelings of isolation and loneliness, provide comfort, reduce boredom, lower anxi-

ety, and even create motivation for the client to recover faster. Elizabeth Penny is a Licensed/Certified Recreation Therapist at WakeMed Rehab Hospital in Raleigh. She states, “Animals are natural therapists. Their presence, affection, and simple needs give us a feeling of well-being that is often missing from today’s fast-paced world. Animals give us the benefit of feeling needed, feelings of safety and security. They give us a sense of family. They are sensitive to our moods, and even encourage us to exercise.” Dogs are very often the “animal of choice” for therapy purposes. The nature of the service they provide depends on their training and their level of involvement with the patient. The Companionship Link: Animal-Assisted Activity Programs Animal-Assisted Activity (AAA) programs aim to enhance the receiver’s quality of life in some way. These programs are often locally based and volunteerdriven. Most often, the animal is a personal pet. The pet accompanies its owner to a facility and visits with patients, residents, or students. They typically visit nursing homes, foster homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and schools. The overall goal of this type of therapeutic activity is to provide opportunities for socialization with the visiting pet and its owner.

In nursing homes, the visits provide a welcome break from daily routine, a subject for conversation, and an opportunity for one-to-one interaction.

A few years later, “hard to reach” when he was grown up and through normal means ready to graduate from of communication high school, the young man and interaction came by the school to tell (for example, an Henry goodbye and give Alzheimer’s patient) him one last hug. (opposite page) may respond positively to a visiting animal, by touching, stroking, or speaking to the animal. Some children with autism or other learning difficulties may actually find it easier to interact with animals than people. According to helpguide.org, “Autistic children often rely on nonverbal cues to communicate, just as pets do. And learning to first connect with a cat or dog, for example, may even help an autistic child in their interactions with people.”

“reading with Henry” sessions,” Carole stated. “On the other hand, children who have been placed in the foster home no longer have their pets with them. Those children just need to hug a dog and feel that unconditional love between dog and child. The dogs are soft, they are loving. We don’t do any special “program” there. I just hand over the leash with a loving dog at the end of it. The rest takes care of itself.”

The Learning Link: Reading Therapy Programs Reading programs, such as Therapy Dogs International’s “Tail Waggin’ Tutors,” use therapy dogs to help children improve their literacy skills in a nonstressful, non-judgmental environment. Children who have learning disabilities may have self-esteem issues, or feel shyness and anxiety when asked to participate in regular classroom activities. These children may be able to focus better and develop more self-confidence when they participate in a reading program with a therapy animal. Carole Webber of Hayesville, NC has two certified therapy dogs, Henry, a mellow Saint Bernard, and Bran “Muffin,” a lovable Golden Retriever. Both dogs participate in a reading program for the Exceptional Children class at Hayesville Middle School. They also make regular visits to the Truett Children’s Home, a nearby foster home. “The school kids just love hitting the books during their

Bran “Muffin” happily snuggles with a friend at the children’s home (Photo by Carole Webber).

“Bran also regularly visits the residents of a nearby nursing home,” Carole added. “It’s wonderful to see how some of their faces just light up when he goes into their rooms.” The Healing Link: Animal-Assisted Therapy Programs In addition to providing a boost in terms of quality of life, some animals actively work with patients in a clinical setting, thanks to organizations like Canine Companions for Independence (CCI). CCI is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships with medical facilities and healthcare providers. These programs are often

referred to as “Animal-Assisted Therapy” (AAT). The programs usually involve a highly trained animal who may actually be owned by an organization such as CCI, but lives and works with a handler in partnership with a local healthcare facility. After several years of service, the dog typically “retires” from his work and may go to live as a beloved pet for the rest of his life with either his handler or another family. Scully is a 75-pound Labrador Retriever who enjoys the distinction of being WakeMed’s only four-legged employee. Scully came to WakeMed Rehab Hospital in 2008 through a partnership with CCI and a grant from the WakeMed Foundation. He lives with his handler, Elizabeth Penny, who works at WakeMed as a Recreation Therapist. For three hours each day, Scully reports to work with Elizabeth. Together they work with her patients in treatment sessions that are designed to help them regain their health, function and independence. Occupational Therapy patients can help increase their fine motor skills by grooming Scully, brushing his teeth, massaging him and playing fetch. Special modifications are made by using special mitts or raising tables to fit each patient’s needs. Physical Therapy patients can increase standing balance and endurance by playing fetch and helping Elizabeth Scully, Facility Dog at WakeMed Rehab Hospital (Photo walk Scully inside or outside the facility. taken by Sue Vaughn at an Occupational Therapy session). Speech Therapy patients can improve short term memory, word retrieval, problem solving, sequencing, and increase breath support by giving Scully commands, following command steps, and remembering information. Recreation Therapy patients can improve their social skills, practice previous skills, complete problem solving and math problems, decrease depression, increase self confidence and motivation, give commands, play fetch, and participate in opportunities for socialization, creative writing, and art/drawing projects. A Labor of Love Elizabeth states, “While animals are far more than “tools” in therapy, their innate natures are often ideally suited to enhance therapeutic progress. The Person-Centered Counseling approach mentions three conditions that must be present in order for therapeutic growth to occur: genuineness; unconditional positive regard; and empathy. Animals provide these emotions freely and without judgment, in a manner that human counselors can only strive to achieve.” Both Carole and Elizabeth take great pride in the contributions Want to learn more?

Reading With Henry “Who wants to start out reading with Henry today?” asks Carole Webber. Henry, a large Saint Bernard, stands by Carole expectantly, his long furry tail waving gently back and forth. Several hands shoot up out of the group of excited students. Henry is making his monthly visit to the Exceptional Children’s class at Hayesville Middle School, a small school located in the mountains of western North Carolina. “Wow! So many volunteers! Looks like Henry is going to be able to finish at least a couple of chapters today!” Carole exclaims as she handed the story book to Terrence*, a grinning boy in a striped shirt. After a little bit of friendly jostling for the choicest positions close to Henry, the group quickly settles into a circle. As the room grows quiet, a couple of hands slip forward to rest trustingly on Henry’s thick, soft coat. Terrence starts to read the first chapter aloud. Henry rests his head on his front paws and lets out a long, contented sigh, gazing steadily at the boy. When Terrence falters for a moment over an unfamiliar word, Henry continues to rest calmly, his eyes fixed on the boy, his tail wagging ever so slightly. “Mmm…my-ster-y”, Terrance sounds the word out slowly. “Mystery! The word is ‘mystery’!” he exclaims triumphantly. He reaches forward and pets Henry happily. “Thanks, Henry!” Henry wags his tail enthusiastically at the pride in the boy’s voice. By the time the session ends, every child present has taken a turn at reading a page from the story book to Henry. “Reading with Henry” is a local program created for children who struggle with their reading skills. It is based on Therapy Dogs International’s Tail Waggin’ Tutors Program. Children who are unsure of their reading skills often worry about making mistakes or feel self-conscious reading aloud in class. Carole Webber, Henry’s owner, says, “Reading to Henry” provides a way for them to work on their reading and vocabulary skills. The sessions help kids learn while increasing their self-confidence. A dog doesn’t mind if you mess up a word now and then. ” * Name changed for privacy purposes.

Outside the Box Teaching Gets Your Child Back Into Reading Is your child having problems keeping up with reading assignments? Have you noticed a growing reluctance to study? Or heard the complaint that homework assignments are just “too hard”? We can help! While there may be other contributing factors, a child’s learning problems often begin at a very basic level - through difficulty with reading comprehension and vocabulary. The “Teach One, Reach One” program helps children increase their reading comprehension and vocabulary knowledge through one-on-one tutoring, small group classes, internet resources, and computer-aided instruction. We use creative, “outside of the box” methods to engage, inspire, and motivate the K-5 grade level child who is not being reached effectively in a regular classroom setting. Our methods and teaching tools have proven effective in motivating students and boosting their test scores.

Teaching Methods Creative writing, spelling bees, hip-hop programs, art, and music work together to engage each child in a fun learning environment customized to meet their educational needs.

The Curriculum Flocabulary is an innovative learning program that uses hip-hop music to teach new vocabulary skills.

We provide explicit, systematic assessment, instruction, and intervention that promotes reading competency for students at each developmental stage of reading proficiency.

Each lesson starts by using a professionally produced rap song that introduces and defines each new word. The auditory and visual connection to the written word and its pronunciation is then reinforced by a research-based lesson designed to provide multiple, varied exposures to each word.

Personalized instruction focuses on competency in language arts and the following skills: • Text Comprehension • Phonics • Reading Proficiency • Fluency • Individual Motivation Skills • Vocabulary

The Word Up vocabulary-building program provides an interactive, fun experience that integrates activities and assessment tools which keep your young student interested and eager for the next lesson.
