Description of Service
Occupational Therapy: addresses eye-hand coordination , hand skills, play skills, self-care adapted skills such as feeding and dressing, and sensory processing including tolerance for touch and movement. The oocupational therapist helps the family address the area within family otings and activities.
Physical Therapy: Therapist's are concerned with a child's gross motor skills and achievement of developmental milestones. Gross motor skills involve the coordinated movement of the large muscle groups to achieve functional movement. Some developmental mulestones include lifting the chest off the ground while lying on the stomach, rolling over, sitting, creeping on hands and knees, walking, etc.
Speech-Language Therapy: Concerned with how a child understands his world and learning to interact and communicate with others. They may assess a variety of areas such as expressive communication (e.g. use of gestures, sounds, words, sentences, etc.) receptive language (understanding of what is said), articulation (sound production), voice(pitch,quality), and fluency(flow of words). They may also assess eating and drinking skills. Once therapy has begun, the caregiver and therapist will share information that best promotes development of communication skills and/or feeding skills.
Comprehensive Autism Evaluations: Our evaluation process involves the use of the "gold standard" for diagnosing autism. The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedules (ADOS) along with information received from treating therapists, daycares, and parents, and input from speech and occupational therapists all contribute to the evaluation process. A diagnosis of an ASD provides guidance for intervention and paves the way for prompt access to services and treatment approaches that are effective for children with autism.
