Occupational Therapy provides services which help promote independence in areas related to sensory motor, visual motor, self-care and social skills. Here at KidSense, occupational therapy focuses on allowing children of all ability levels the opportunity to explore their environments in a safe and playful manner. All treatment sessions are child directed and involve a variety of sensory experiences in order to provide the body with the appropriate amount of sensory input for better integration and organization and therefore acquisition of skills.
Speech-language therapy is the treatment for speech and/or language disorders. A speech disorder refers to a problem with the actual production of sounds. A language disorder refers to a difficulty in understanding or putting words together to communicate ideas. Speech disorders include articulation, fluency and voice disorders. Language disorders can be either receptive, expressive or pragmatic/social. Here at KidSense speech-language services are provided in a variety of approaches, reflecting the individual needs of the child as well as groups focused on Social Thinking®. Speech-language skills are not just delivered in a sitting format but are also incorporated into fun functional tasks that are motivating for the children.
Art therapy is the therapeutic use of art making within a professional relationship. Art therapy is based on the belief that the creative process involved in the art making is healing and life-enhancing.What are the benefits? Art therapy uses the art making process and the resulting art product as an alternative means of communication. The art therapist and the client work together to understand this primarily non-verbal communication. Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, clients are able to increase awareness of their behavior and the behavior of others, develop problem solving strategies, cope with symptoms, stress and traumatic experiences, and enhance cognitive abilities.
