THERAPEUTIC SERVICES

Our purpose is to evaluate and provide school based therapy support services and recreation to children with diagnosed dev. disabilities or children needing medically based therapy services.

Physical Therapy:

A physical therapist specializes in improving the development of the large muscles of the body, such as those in the legs, arms and abdomen (gross motor skills). Physical therapists help children learn better ways to move and balance. Abhilasha’s physical therapists focuses on pain management, general strengthening, joint range of motion, endurance, gross motor functioning and other physical issues relating to

Gross Motor Deficits and Postural Balance Training

Physical therapists work with children to improve range of motion, strength, mobility, posture, balance, and endurance for independent function. This enables the child to participate in age-appropriate gross motor or school based activities with peers, such as jumping, climbing, kicking, and throwing.

Evaluation for Specialized/Adaptive Equipment

Our physical therapists work in conjunction with medical equipment companies to evaluate a child's need for specialized equipment, such as wheelchairs, splints, standing frames, ankle foot orthoses, etc. to get appropriate and required equipment to aid a child in development and daily life activities.

Walking/Gait Training

Physical therapists help children learn to walk or relearn to walk after a bone fracture or other illness that causes the muscles or bones in the legs to make walking difficult. We have specialized equipment that further helps our patients to walk again.

Neuromuscular Diseases/Deficits

Our physical therapists provide specialized care for children with neuromuscular disorders and other related conditions. Our therapists seek to improve the quality of life for children with neuromuscular diseases such as Cerebral Palsy, traumatic brain injury, pediatric strokes.

Occupational Therapy:

An occupational therapist specializes in improving the development of the small muscles of the body, such as the hands, feet, face, fingers and toes. They work with children on better ways to use their arms, hands, and upper body.

Fine Motor Skills

Our occupational therapists focus on learning how to develop a child’s fine motor skills to help them engage in basic life tasks, such as buttoning buttons, tying shoes, handwriting skills, or cutting with scissors.

Activities of Daily Living

Our occupational therapists help children with developmental delays learn basic tasks, such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, tying shoes and feeding themselves.

Evaluation for Specialized/Adaptive Equipment

Our occupational therapists evaluate a child's need for specialized equipment, such as wheelchairs, splints, bathroom equipment, etc. We will often work directly with medical equipment companies to ensure the children we treat have the best possible equipment for life outside the therapy session.

Sensory Integration Disorders

Our occupational therapists assess a wide variety of sensory systems including touch, sight, smell, taste, movement, and body position to determine their effect on the child’s function. We then work with children who have sensory and attention issues to improve focus, social skills, and age appropriate reactions to stimuli in their surrounding environments. Therapist use various forms of activities to promote regulation of sensory input to help children develop peer and adult relationships, learn, focus on tasks, engage in play with peers, and express feelings in more appropriate ways. Some examples of these activities may include techniques such as brushing, using suspended equipment, ball pits, and the use of weighted vests or blankets. Our therapists use learned skills that include understanding the sensory systems effects on behavior in order to help children with behavior problems.

Visual Motor Integration

Our occupational therapists help to improve visual motor integration, visual processing, visual memory, and visual perceptual abilities. These abilities are needed for day-to-day activities such as handwriting and play activities.

Speech / Language Therapy:

A speech and language therapist helps develop better control of the jaw and mouth muscles, which can improve speech and language skills and eating abilities. They also help develop creative communication methods for those who cannot speak. A speech and language therapist will work with your child on communication skills.

Receptive Language Therapy

Our Speech Language Pathologists will focus on the following skills while performing Receptive Language Therapy: following routine requests such as “sit down” and “throw it away,” pointing to familiar pictures/objects when named by therapist, appropriately using objects/toys during play, understanding more words, understanding sentences, and understanding reading passages. When a child experiences difficulty understanding others then he/she could benefit from receptive therapy.

Expressive Language Therapy

Our Speech Language Pathologists will focus on the following skills in Expressive Language Therapy: using words(or other communication systems such as pictures or sign language) to name or request items/actions, using word endings correctly (such as plurals, possessives, past tense), using correct grammatical structures, answering/asking yes/no and who, what, where, when, why, how questions, improving written expression, and improving pragmatic/social skills. When a child experiences difficulty in sharing thoughts, ideas, and feelings then he/she could benefit from expressive language therapy.

Articulation/Phonological Processing Therapy

Our Speech Language Pathologists might address/teach the following skills to those affected with an articulation/speech sound or production/phonological processing disorder: hearing the differences between sounds and saying sounds correctly so the child is understood by unfamiliar listeners in all levels of speech. When a child experiences difficulty producing specific sounds correctly (such as always saying the (f) sound incorrectly), then he/she may have an articulation disorder.

Feeding Therapy

Our Speech Language Pathologists provide therapy to increase oral intake and expand the child’s repertoire of foods by introducing new tastes, temperatures, and textures. Feeding therapy may include oral motor exercises to teach a correct suck, chew, or swallow pattern to ensure safety when eating. If your child exhibits any difficulty with sucking, eating, or maintaining a healthy weight, he/she may have a feeding disorder.

Oral Motor Therapy

Our Speech Language Pathologists use exercise in therapy sessions to increase jaw, lip, and tongue strength and coordination as well as breathe support required for feeding, swallowing, and speech. If your child experiences difficulty with moving parts of his or her mouth to speak, eat, and swallow, then they could benefit from oral motor therapy.

Fluency/Stuttering Therapy

Our Speech Language Pathologists provide therapy to help the child increase their awareness of stuttering in themselves and others, learn and use relaxation techniques, and produce fluent speech via certain strategies. If your child continually inserts words/sounds (like, um, uh, hmm) in phrases, repeats sounds / words / phrases, and/or has difficulty “getting the words out,” then he/she could benefit from speech therapy.

Language / Literacy Therapy

Early development of good speech and language skills is vital in the development of normal language and literacy. If your child has difficulty with language skills that are affecting his/her ability to sound out words, pronounce words or sounds, or comprehend what he/she has read, he/she may benefit from a language evaluation to examine his/her literacy skills.

Psycholgist:

A psychologist helps people to deal with the personal, social, and vocational effects of disabilities. They provide counseling to parents and other family members to understand and cope with the new challenges in a positive way.

Behavior Therapist:

A Behavior modification program is set up by the psychologist to change a particular behavior pattern.

Assistive Technology:

Assistive technology is the technology which helps an individual with an impairment to perform tasks that are difficult to perform in daily life. That means, assistive technology compensates for disabilities so that the persons with disabilities function as normally as possible.
