After the speech-language evaluation is complete, we will develop an individualized treatment plan of care. This speech therapy treatment plan will be tailored, to fit the patient’s individual needs based on the evaluation results. Treatment sessions are typically 30 minutes and can be scheduled at our clinics, within an educational setting or in the patient’s home.
Occupational therapy entails a treatment plan that will utilize goal directed activities to improve functional independence in the patient’s daily activities such as self-care, educational, recreational, or work related activities. Treatment sessions are typically 30-60 minutes and can also be scheduled at our clinics, within an educational setting or in the patient’s home.
Our physical therapists will address many areas of concern: pain, decrease mobility and function with our goal being return to the activities you love whether walking the dog or running a marathon, quilting to lifting weights. For kids we make PT fun and functional. Our mission is to help kids to reach their highest potential.
Social skills groups are used to teach individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) ways to appropriately interact with typically developing peers. Social skills groups typically involve small groups of two to six individuals with disabilities and one of our Speech Language Pathologists or Occupational Therapists. Social skills groups include instruction, role-playing or practice, and feedback to help learners with ASD acquire and practice skills to promote positive social interactions with peers.
A speech or occupational therapist will implement feeding and swallowing therapy so that the patient can drink from a bottle or cup, get acclimated to new foods or drinks, or behave during meals. We can also aid people of all ages to strengthen the muscles in the mouth, improve tongue movement, or to learn how to breath while sucking or swallowing. Whether the patient is a baby or child, or an adult that has suffered from a stroke or other injury, feeding and swallowing therapy can be very helpful in bringing joy to meal times.
Because Hippotherapy is intergrated into physical, occupational & speech therapy, it is part of a one-on-one medical treatment and focuses on specific patient outcomes.
Our Speech Pathologist is able to use equine movement to facilitate the physiologic systems that support speech and language.
