Occupational therapy is the only profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). For children, an occupational therapist can help them learn to play, crawl, use their hands, eat a variety of foods, play with toys appropriately, write numbers and letters, socialize with friends and recover from injury to regain skills.
Speech therapy is the assessment and treatment of communication and speech disorders. It is performed by speech-language pathologists (SLPs), which are often referred to as speech therapists.
Speech therapy techniques are used to improve communication through a variety of creative intervention strategies. These may include but are limited to articulation therapy, language intervention activities, swallowing improvement and others depending on the type of speech concern.
Holistic is typically defined as pertaining to body, mind and spirit. This means that all aspects of your child are considered, including feelings, behavior, toxic exposures, stress, diet, nutrition, genetics and environment. At its best, it involves looking at the whole child to determine underlying imbalances that might be affecting health.
Our practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the person, understanding the uniqueness of each family and knowing that the person is an integral part of the therapy team.
