Nursing and Occupational Therapy Students Collaborate with Head Start

Published: March 2, 2020.

Nursing and Occupational Therapy students at Lewis University recently collaborated to educate families served by the Broadway Center Head Start Program of the Diocese of Joliet Early Childhood Services Division. The student engagement helped foster an interdisciplinary relationship that is necessary for community education program outcomes.

The future nurses and occupational therapists presented on sensory processing concerns and strategies to promote participation in daily life activities and conducted an evidence-based presentation on poison risks, prevention, and action in the home.

“Through the combined efforts and support of all of the student participants, the adult caregivers received information that was timely and pertinent to their daily interaction with children,” said Anne McShane, Assistant Professor of Nursing.

The Nursing students included Amy Fleszewski of Homer Glen, Vanessa Jaramillo of New Lenox, Kristina Kolerich of Orland Park, Daniel Lennox of Lockport, Jessica Simon of Naperville, Lesley Ulloa Aldape of Joliet, and Colleen Wright on New Lenox.

Vanessa Jaramillo and Lesley Ulloa Aldape were the interpreters for both presentations. The Spanish-speaking families were appreciative of the students' efforts and the information provided.

This community outreach program helps students demonstrate the Lewis University spirit of association through a service-learning project. Through their work with vulnerable families in the Joliet community, these students implemented Mission-based care in the spirit of association.
