If a child cannot learn the way I teach, then I must teach the way he learns.

Thank you, First National Bank!

First National Bank of Pennsylvania has long been a wonderful and generous community partner in Sewickley, supporting some of Laughlin's special events for many years, like the St. Valentine's Day Family Ball. Coming through for us yet again, First National Bank's Sewickley Office has generously provided the grant funds necessary to complete the purchase of AV technology for Laughlin's new listening stations!

Our recent renovations have included special listening rooms for the parents of speech and psychology patients. These parents are now able to witness their child's therapy sessions firsthand without disturbing the session or being physically present in the room. Thanks to First National Bank, each listening room is now outfitted with an AV microphone and headphone system, allowing parents to listen in on the practices and methodology that is taking place in the therapy room, in addition to watching through the one-way windows that are attached to the suite. The hope is that if parents can better understand what their child is working on, they can continue the various approaches in other settings, like at home or in the car, producing sustainable therapy results.

On behalf of the entire Laughlin community - Thank you, First National Bank! Your commitment to this community can be traced throughout Sewickley's past, and is something we know we can count on in the future! Stay tuned for the pictures!
