Speech-language therapy addresses the communication needs of children. Speech-language pathologists work on what children understand (receptive language), what they have to say (expressive language) and how they say it (articulation/phonology and pragmatics). Speech-language pathologists use a total communication approach – incorporating the use of sign language, picture symbols, and other modes of augmentative communication into therapy. Therapy is contracted through an independent therapist.
Everyone has an occupation or job. A kid's occupation is to grow, learn, do schoolwork, and play. Occupational therapy (OT) helps children perform their daily living tasks, especially self-care and learning activities. Occupational therapy (or OT) helps kids who have a physical, sensory, or cognitive disability carry out everyday activities. These activities may include assisting a child with improving handwriting, visual motor skills, coordination and strengthening of the fine motor skills. The goal of OT is to help children with a disadvantage be as independent as possible! Therapy is contracted with an independent therapist.
