Hybrid Services

Our Hybrid Therapy services begin with a home visit for your first session. Your next 3 sessions occur via Teletherapy. The process repeats itself alternating 1 home visit with 3 teletherapy visits. Home Visits are provided at same rate as teletherapy sessions.

Teletherapy Toolkit

Hand-selected manipulatives, based on your child's interests, are sent to you by mail or delivered in person. The toolkit contents create a hands-on-learning experience to bring tangibility and enhance sessions.

Let's work out any kinks in the technology set up for your child's home therapy space. We'll assist with identification of a physical space as well as coach you though the optimal technology set up to ensure success.

Features

Functionality: Home environment incorporates familiar functional objects and surroundings for carryover of newly learned skills.
.

Clinic-Only Model

Parent & Caregiver Education:  Observe us teach your child skills and then become the teacher for when we’re not around (which is most of the time).

Comfort & Productivity: The natural 'safe' home environment means your child is at ease sooner with an unfamiliar clinician. Bringing confidence and productivity.

Less Restrictive: Not limited by clinic guidelines. The focus is on your child's immediate needs to help them to be a more functional communicator in their real-life everyday situations.

Hybrid Home Therapy Model

Time and Money: Replace the time you typically spend commuting with implementing your child's home program and your child will graduate from therapy quicker than they would in a clinic setting.

WE HELP KIDS DEVELOP THE FOLLOWING AREAS

Our Services

Feeding Services

While working closely with parents, our Occupational Therapist's feeding program employs motor exercises, oral-motor techniques and/or procedures to optimize mealtime structure, as well as to a sensory hierarchy to explore new food types and textures to expand diets.

Articulation & Phonology

Addressing the clarity of speech. Sounds can be substituted, left off, added or changed. These errors may make it hard for people to understand a child. Articulation therapy focuses on the motor aspects of speech production and the clarity of speech sound production.

 Expressive Language is difficulty with verbal expression. A Receptive Language Disorder occurs when a child presents with difficulties in the ability to attend to, process, comprehend, retain, or integrate spoken language. 

Expressive | Receptive Language

Speech & Language Delay

 Early intervention (ages 0-3) allows us to both identify and treat children using a systematic approach known as Routines Based Intervention. An individualized approach to enhance the child’s skills during daily routines with strong parent involvement.

 A group of disorders characterized by impairments in social interaction, imaginative activity, verbal and nonverbal communication skills. Kids diagnosed on the spectrum often appear to have a limited number of interests and activities which tend to be repetitive. 

Autism Spectrum Disorders

Motor Speech Disorders

 Apraxia of speech, or verbal apraxia, is a motor speech disorder where a child has trouble saying what they want to say correctly and consistently. The child has difficulty coordinating their oral muscles used for speech, not due to weakness,or paralysis, but rather due to voluntary coordination.

Tongue Thrust

A delay or interruption in the oral maturation process,failing to progress to an adult swallow pattern. Therapy includes exercises for the lips, tongue and jaw.  Therapy works to change an incorrect or immature swallow to an adult pattern that is beneficial to the positioning of teeth and articulation.

Pragmatics is the area of language function that embrace the use of language in social contexts (knowing what to say, how to say it.) Children with pragmatic language difficulties have trouble using language socially in ways that are appropriate or typical of children of their age.

Social Pragmatics

Stuttering \ Fluency

Characteristics of non-fluent speech include repetition of sounds, syllables and phrases. Prolongations or stretching of syllables may occur, as well as blocks, or tense pauses. Physical behaviors or reactions may also co-exist with the stuttering episodes..
