"Discovery Wall" funded by Vectren helps young clients develop skills.

A Discovery Wall funded through a grant by Vectren has introduced a unique method of therapy for children and youth with disabilities at the Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center.

The therapeutic climbing wall creates a unique environment in the facility's gymnasium. During occupational and physical therapy sessions, the Discovery Wall helps young clients improve their strength, balance, hand-eye coordination, flexibility, and self-esteem.

Discovery Wall

In addition to providing hand-holds and foot-holds for climbing, the wall features a magnetic surface, allowing clients to work with magnetic letters and numbers.  The wall also has a chalkboard finish that's ideal for practicing writing skills.

Not only does the Discovery Wall provide a great treatment option for physical and occupational therapists, but it can also be used by speech therapists, counselors, and other professionals to encourage, motivate, and reward the young people they work with.

Special thanks to Vectren for funding this therapy environment, which is unique in our local community!  This gift is helping to change lives by providing many opportunities for children and youth to work on a variety of goals in a fun, challenging, non-clinical atmosphere.
