We provide comprehensive, personalized instruction!
Our early intervention services include speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and nutrition services.
Physical therapy helps families with their child’s development and ability to participate in age-appropriate and meaningful activities with families, friends, and neighbors. Activities which can include learning to crawl and sitting up so they can play and interact with their family and peers. Physical therapists also help children learn to grasp objects to help build and create in their self-care activities. Physical therapist can also help determine the appropriateness and need for adaptive equipment.
Occupational therapy promotes the function and engagement of infants and toddlers and their families in everyday routines by addressing areas of “occupation”, which include activities of daily living, education, play, leisure, sleep and socialization. They assist with functional learning activities based on the family and child interests and routine. Occupational therapists use the child’s daily activities such as play, meal and sleep times to promote a secure attachment and enhance a healthy bond that forms between the infant and caregivers.
Speech Therapy helps promote receptive and expressive communication and oral motor skills to speak and swallow. Speech therapy helps the child and parents to community effectively as well helps the child express him/herself and interact with others in society. Speech therapy helps with sentence and vocabulary expansion, identifying errors in sound, reading fluency and pronunciation. Speech therapy also helps with behaviors due to aggression which may be caused by a child inability to communicate his/her needs.
Special Instruction addresses the child’s overall growth and progress, and structures appropriate learning and developmental goals such as improving creativity and independence . Focus is on improving play skills, behavioral issues, social interactions, building healthy relationships with others, cognitive development, motor skills, and language. Special instruction is taught by educators whose goal is to increase the child’s learning opportunities to positively impact their growth while coordinating with the parents and other professionals who will extend these experiences throughout the child’s daily routines.
Services are provided by a registered dietitian who will develop and monitor feeding plans which will address nutritional needs, food habits, food preferences and feeding skills. Dietitians will assess and monitor the child’s growth according to height and weight charts, document current intake in comparison to recommended intake, help identify GI concerns such as allergies or intolerances and recommend additional testing as necessary. Dietitians also work with the family by supervising preparation and delivery of food and encouraging good food habits.
