Affiliate Highlight: Lotus Speech & Wellness, LLC
We’re continuing with our affiliate highlight series, this time turning our eye to Lotus Speech & Wellness, LLC in Maine and Massachusetts.
Learn What Makes Lotus Speech & Wellness, LLC Unique
Our mission is to support people with aphasia through our high-quality, accessible online speech therapy, yoga, and mindfulness offerings. Our services enhance communication, cognition, and mind-body wellness to maximize participation in daily life.
Our owners are both Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) and Certified Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS) with over 10 years of experience helping people with aphasia. Katherine is also a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200) and has completed additional training with LoveYourBrain, a yoga and mindfulness program for people with brain injuries.
Here Are Some of the Services They Offer
We offer evaluation and treatment of speech, language, and cognitive skills. We also offer livestream chair yoga classes (and have a library of classes available to “rent” on our website) and private yoga sessions. Our yoga classes include breathing and mindfulness exercises as well as physical sequences, and after each class, we offer an opportunity to chat and connect to cultivate community.
They Have Great Success Stories
We love helping clients with functional communication – in other words, skills that will help them in everyday life communication with family and friends. Some fond moments include working with a client to read a favorite book; singing country music with a Tim McGraw fan; and doing seated chair yoga with a local stroke support group.
The Pandemic Changed a Few Things…
We started our telepractice during the pandemic! We offer all of our speech-language pathology and yoga services online. We feel that this helps to make our services more accessible to people throughout the state, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
They Specifically Offer
Online discussion groups, support groups, events, or online one-on-one therapy.
A Few Last Things You Should Know
We offer online one-on-one evaluation and therapy. Our yoga and mindfulness offerings are also online. We are also available to do virtual community education such as online presentations, or leading chair yoga at stroke/aphasia support groups. We are open to supporting the aphasia community however we can!
