Risk Assessment and Early Intervention for Infants

Systematically monitor the development of high-risk infants for neurodevelopmental outcomes after discharge from the NICU. High-rIsk infants include preterm and term babies with history of birth or natal complications who are at risk for neurodevelopmental disorders.

Comprehensive Developmental Assessment

This is a formal evaluation which takes more in-depth look at a child’s development across all developmental domains such as Physical, Cognitive, Speech-Language, Socio-emotional and Adaptive Skills. usually done by a trained specialist. The specialist observes the child, give the child a structured test, ask the parents or caregivers questions, or ask them to fill out questionnaires.

The results of this formal evaluation determines whether a child needs special treatments or early intervention services or both.

Integrated Early Intervention Program

Many children have delays in language or other areas that can affect how well they do in school. However, many children with developmental delays are not identified until they are in school, by which time significant delays might have occurred and opportunities for treatment might have been missed.

Early intervention services can help infants and toddlers with disabilities or delays to learn many key skills and catch up in their development.

Speech and Communication Therapy

Autism can affect speech, language development, and social communication in many ways.
Children with ASD may have major problems with both speech and nonverbal communication. They may also find it very hard to interact socially. About one out of three people with autism has trouble producing speech sounds to effectively communicate with others. The person's language, if present, is simply too hard to understand.
Communication problems in Autism
A child with autism may have one or more of these communication challenges:
Trouble with conversational skills, which include eye contact and gestures
Trouble understanding the meaning of words outside the context where they were learned
Memorization of things heard without knowing what's been said
Reliance on echolalia — the repeating of another's words as they are being said — as the main way to communicate
Little understanding of the meaning of words or symbols
Lack of creative language
For these reasons, speech therapy is a central part of treatment for autism. Speech therapy can address a wide range of communication problems for people with autism.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy (OT) helps children with coordination, focus and organizational skills. OT helps kids with certain learning and attention issues do the activities of daily living they struggle to do.

Occupational therapy for children can lead to big benefits, especially for kids with learning and attention issues.

OT can help kids who struggle with everyday fine and gross motor tasks like using a toothbrush, writing on a chalkboard etc.It can also help kids who struggle with self-regulation and sensory processing issues.

Sensory Integration Therapy

Sensory experiences include touch, movement, body awareness, sight, sound, smell, taste and the pull of gravity. The process of the brain organizing and interpreting this information is called Sensory Integration. Sensory Integration (SI) provides a crucial foundation for later, more complex learning and behaviour.

A high percentage of children with learning, developmental or behavioural problems have underlying sensory integration difficulties requiring Sensory Integration Therapy.

Behavior Therapy

Behavioral therapy is a needed intervention for kids with autism, it is combined with speech language therapy and occupational therapy, and academic and family supports. Yet behavioral therapy is the foundation of skill building for most children with autism.

Pediatric Physical Therapy

Physical therapy focuses on the gross motor function of the child. It helps children with developmental, neuromuscular and orthopaedic conditions to restore and enhance their development.

Physical therapy can provide significant benefits for:
Gross motor skill deficits
Limitations of range of motion and strength
Balance and coordination difficulties
Assessment for orthotics and equipment
Toe walking
Genetic syndromes (Down syndrome)
Cerebral palsy
Developmental delays
Autism spectrum disorders
Hypotonia
Torticollis

Special Education

Special education is aided teaching for children who have difficulty with general education.

A special education program is customized to address each individual student's unique needs. Also it is planned following an assessment of several factors influencing that particular child's learning.

Social Skills Training

SOCIAL SKILLS training help children engage in pragmatic language and manage real-world difficulties with peers. Observational studies show them to be effective. Because children with autism are usually more comfortable talking and interacting with adults than with peers, social skills groups bring out difficulties that come up when being with peers.

In such groups, the leader sets up specific situations that mimic real life and guides a child to develop appropriate behaviors. The groups often use text and pictures to demonstrate social skills. Social scripts give children the specific language to manage difficult situations.

School Readiness Program

We integrate school readiness skills the child will require to function in school.

The School Readiness Program is designed to provide support to children who require extra assistance in the school behaviors and routines for the children who are about to enter mainstream school and the classroom, which can often be a confronting and chaotic environment.

Parent/Caregiver Training Program

Parents are the foundation of a child's world and development. Our aim is to guide parents through the special needs journey every step of the way. Parent training equips parents with necessary knowledge and skills to help the child and thus reduce their dependency on professional services.
