- Detailed evaluation in gross and fine motor functional capacities, sensory motor, speech, language and behavioural areas by qualified professionals.
- Physiotherapy/Neuro Developmental Therapy Neurodevelopmental treatment (NDT) is a hands-on treatment approach used by physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists. NDT was developed to enhance the function of adults and children who have difficulty controlling movement as a result of neurological challenges, such as cerebral palsy, stroke, and head injury. This therapy uses guided or facilitated movements as a treatment strategy to ensure correlation of input from tactile, vestibular, and somatosensory receptors within the body
- Speech Therapy Speech therapy is the assessment and treatment of communication problems 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. These include articulation therapy, language intervention activities, and others depending on the type of speech or language disorder.
- Occupational Therapy & Sensory Integration Therapy Sensory integration therapy aims to help kids with sensory processing issues (which some people may refer to as “sensory integration disorder”) by exposing them to sensory stimulation in a structured, repetitive way. The theory behind it is that over time, the brain will adapt and allow kids to process and react to sensations more efficiently. Sensory integration (SI) therapy should be provided by a specially trained occupational therapist (OT). The OT determines through a thorough evaluation whether your child would benefit from SI therapy. In traditional SI therapy, the OT exposes a child to sensory stimulation through repetitive activities. The OT gradually makes activities more challenging and complex. The idea is that through repetition, your child’s nervous system will respond in a more “organized” way to sensations and movement.
- Special Education / Remedial Education Special education refers to a range of services that can be provided in different ways and in different settings. There’s no “one size fits all” approach to special education. It’s tailored to meet the needs of students with disabilities.
Special education focuses on helping kids with disabilities learn. But it doesn’t mean placing kids in a special classroom all day long. In fact, federal law says that kids who get special education services should learn in the same classrooms as other kids as much as possible. This is known as the least restrictive environment (or LRE).
The services and supports for one student may be very different from those of another student. It’s all about the individual child and giving them the resources they need to make progress in school.
Remedial Education, also known as developmental or compensatory education, is a type of education that is designed in a way that helps children achieve their expected level of competency in core academic skills like literacy and numeracy. Quite literally, to ‘remedy’ means to heal or to fix. Similarly, remedial education helps the disadvantaged.or children with special needs achieve the level of competency that is expected of them at their age. In layman’s terms, Remedial Education is a way to bridge the gap between such children and their peers.
Remedial Education helps academically weak students bridge the gap between themselves and their peers through solidifying their core academic skills like literacy and numeracy.
Early Intervention Programs Through the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC), educational and therapy services are provided to children aged six and below diagnosed with special needs that affected their development.
This is a centre-based programme which aims to facilitate development and improvement in six areas:
A) Gross motor and fine motor skills
C)Speech, language and communication skills
The early intervention approach
A team of trans-disciplinary professionals (teacher, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, psychologist, speech & language therapist and social worker) provides intervention as well as family support according to the needs of each child and his family. Teaching is conducted by trained early intervention teachers in class in small group.
We believe that parental involvement is critical to a child's development in the early years. Hence, we encourage parents to participate actively in the intervention process as well as activities that we conduct including caregivers training programmes, parent support groups and social recreational activities.
Snoezelen or controlled multisensory environment (MSE) is a therapy for people with autism and other developmental disabilities, dementia or brain injury. It consists of placing the person in a soothing and stimulating environment, called the "Snoezelen room". These rooms are specially designed to deliver stimuli to various senses, using lighting effects, colour, sounds, music, scents, etc. The combination of different materials on a wall may be explored using tactile senses, and the floor may be adjusted to stimulate the sense of balance. The person is usually accompanied by an aide or therapist.
