Speech Language Pathologists screen, assess, identify and treat speech, language, voice, fluency (stuttering), swallowing and feeding problems for all age groups (SAC, 2016). Our therapists work with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Dyslexia, phonological disorders, language impairments, language-based literacy disorders, among others. Evidence-based interventions are used to generate functional goals to improve our children’s quality if life.
Occupational Therapy is the art and science of enabling engagement in everyday living, through occupation; of enabling people to perform the occupations that foster health and well‐being; and of enabling a just and inclusive society so that all people may participate to their potential in the daily occupations of life (Townsend & Polatajko, 2007, p. 372). Our therapists assess our children’s functional daily living skills and creates intervention plans that promote these skills. OTs focus on gross and fine motor skills, academics (writing, coloring, tracing), sensory processing, posture, balance, and play, among others. Developmentally age-appropriate tasks are focused on, while preventative interventions are further addressed.
