Sit With Us: An App To Combat Bullying

Lunch can be the best time at school for some, while other students may dread going to lunch. Lunch time for these students can be stressful and overwhelming especially if they have no one to sit with. The new app “Sit With Us” was created by a 16 year old student, Natalie Hampton, to help students find others to eat lunch with. The app is available on the iTunes App Store and can be used on an iPhone or iPad.

How It Started

The app was created when Natalie decided to combat bullying that she had experienced. The idea came from previous bullying experiences and having to sit alone at lunch. When she moved to a new school, she had the idea to create something that would make sure that no kids felt like they had nowhere to go, no where to sit, and no one to eat with.

Who It’s For

This app can be used by any student that has either an iPhone or iPad (it is not currently available for Android devices).

How It Works

Photo Credit: iTunes App Store
Once the app is downloaded, you are prompted to create an account with an email or you can log in using a Facebook account. Next you can personalize your account by adding a photo and listing hobbies and interests, and list the school that you are attending/eating lunch at.
Users can add friends and make a “favorites” list, search for lunches that are happening nearby, and create a lunch time and invite friends to join. You can also become a Sit With Us Ambassador, where you can host open lunches that anyone can attend. The app also features a calendar with reminders for events, a message center for chatting with friends, and a group chat feature.

Quick Info

Check out the app in the iTunes App Store or find more information on the app’s website. This app can be helpful for any and every student that eats lunch at school. Encourage children and teens you know to download and use the app.
Help to create a better community environment in schools and possibly make new friendships!

Great place, glad we found them. Been going to Medina over 2 months now and he loves Lauryn and Kyler. Wish they had more ABA therapy places available... live in Wooster and long drive everyday.

My 11 year old son has dyslexia and has made noticeable gains in working At LLA THERAPY. Katie is strong in her approach toward him and also keeps him comfortable enough to perform well. We will continue visiting both the Fairlawn and Hudson offices and recommend them highly.

Ron Monroe

My 9 year old just completed about 9 months of weekly speech sessions (due to his stuttering) with Matt Hagge at LLA and we are thrilled with the experience and results. What I thought might be a negative (what kid really wants to go to speech class?) was made very positive by Matt, and my son never hesitated or complained when we talked about class. He really enjoyed it and really took what Matt taught him to heart. His speech has been greatly improved and we definitely recommend LLA. Thank you so much!

My son’s Occupational Therapist, Jess, is an amazing OT! She gives practical tips on working with my son at home and school!

Terri Apgar

I cannot say enough good things about LLA Therapy. My daughter was a client of Teal Simmons’ for approximately 2 years and was just released from speech therapy! She was diagnosed with Apraxia in 2015 and worked with Teal twice a week. Through Teal’s application of PROMPT therapy, my daughter had age-appropriate speech after one year. All of the staff we interacted with at LLA were absolutely wonderful. They really care about what they do and making sure your child achieves their goals.

LLA Therapy has been an excellent experience for my son as well as my family! My son always asks, "When can I go see Ms. Jeannine again, is it Monday??" He has also made huge gains in only 5 months! I would highly recommend LLA and have already shared my experience with friends looking for services!

Victoria Hansford-Price

We are so grateful for our Speech Therapist Ms.Teal. We have seen a great improvement with our sons confidence and communication abilities since we have started "Prompt" therapy. What we love the most about LLA and Ms. Teal is that Kohl feels comfortable and relaxed which has played a critical role in his progress. Thank you Ms. Teal for all you have done.

Laura Lee Hogsett

They have helped in numerous ways. Speech, OT and behavioral. I've had numerous compliments on my son's progress thanks in very large part to LLA. I would recommend LLA before I recommend our local children's hospitals, though they are good, they don't have the staff that LLA does.

Amy Furukawa

We had a great experience with Matt Hagge at LLA! Our Middle School age son was becoming very conscious of his voice, which is nasal due to a cleft palate. Matt helped him to better form his sounds and project his voice in a way that makes the unavoidable nasality less noticeable.Our son is more confident and outgoing & even took on a speaking role in the church play. Matt has the perfect personality to relate with our son, and we would recommend him to anyone needing speech therapy services!

Jessica Havalotti

LLA Therapy has been an excellent experience for our daughter. I would highly recommend LLA. Miss Grace was so amazing and I can't believe how quickly our daughter showed improvement. Thank you!
