Therapy Services

Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy

Occupational and Physical therapy at ATC Therapy Clinic is a treatment program for learning the necessary skills for purposeful and meaningful daily movements and activities, and learning to understand the world around them.

Treatment is established for the features common in autism, including abnormal relationships to objects and events; abnormal responses to sensations in the environment; challenging behavior; impairments in socialization, imagination, and communication. Therapists also address deficits in self care, coordination, clumsiness, poor balance and delays in motor skills.

In a gym equipped with sensorimotor equipment, movement and play become a teaching avenue to motivate, engage emotions, involve and to excite; thereby, engaging the brain through motor movements and sensory experiences. Motor activities also enhance descriptive and comparative vocabulary.

The treatment team members review each patient’s program and progress, and continually collaborate in an effort to design a treatment approach that is best for each child.

Speech Therapy

Speech therapy, conducted by certified speech language pathologists, consists of diagnosing and treating all aspects of communication.
Strengths and needs in the following areas are identified in order to develop individualized programs:

  • Speech – the production of sounds in words

  • Expressive and Receptive Language – the ability to understand and use language

  • Pragmatics – the ability to use socially appropriate language

  • Oral Motor – the ability to use voluntary motor movements to produce speech

Early identification and intervention combined with individualized plans are the key elements for effective treatment.  Sign language, picture symbols, and/or augmentative communication devices are used when needed to facilitate speech and language development.

Speech sessions are 30-60 minutes depending on the individual’s age, strengths, and needs. Following a comprehensive assessment, either one-on-one session or co-treatment with an Occupational Therapist and/or Physical Therapist is offered to ensure the most effective therapy.
