Programs to develop Motor, Locomotor and Co-ordination skills
Through this program we train kids to achieve milestones like rolling over, sitting, crawling, standing, walking, climbing etc, .
Occupational Therapy trains them to grasp and manipulate objects and more important to develop abilities to plan motor sequences for tasks they need to execute.
Programs to impart Sensory stimulation and Sensory Integration
We use activities that will provide Vestibular, Proprioceptive, Visual, Auditory & Tactile stimulation to organize the neural functions which in turn helps to learn new skills and adaptive behaviours to perform day-to-day tasks.
The Occupational Therapy clinic is equipped with swings, trapeze, climbing frames, ball pools and textured mats to provide aerial, movement and proprioceptive and tactile experiences.
Visual , Auditory and Kinesthetic senses are integrated through participating in fun video games on gadgets like Playstation, Wii Nintendo , X-box and I-Pad
Programs to Modify Behavior Problems and improve psycho social skills
This program works to modify a range of Behavior problems like non-compliance, opposition, hyperactivity, violence, aggression, destructive behaviors and conduct disorders.
Occupational Therapy analyses behavior patterns and modify them through operant learning, sensory integration and skill development.
Programs to develop Attention, Concentration & Executive functioning
We provide activities to enhance executive functioning of the brain. Through a variety of specially designed learning material, educational softwares, apps, kinetic and video games we focus on clients developing skills to scan, register, inhibit their impulsivity, strengthen their working memory, develop links to stored information, stimulate spatial and temporal perception .
A large part of Occupational therapy is imparted through well researched Computer softwares and apps which are interesting and very motivating for kids.
Programs to develop Reading, Writing & Math skills
These programs focus on developing/remediating Reading, Writing and Math skills. Occupational Therapy provides activities to improve visual and auditory perceptual abilities as well as cognitive processing skills. An important component is the assimilation of direction, rhythm, spatial and temporal relations. Table work as well as whole body movement is part of this program
Programs to Empower Parents and society
Besides the child, all our programs focus on family and care givers too. Parents/caregivers are given hands on training in sessions with their child. Through regular discussions and seminars held at the month end, we empower parents and professionals with knowledge, techniques and strategies to manage different developmental challenges.
We also reach out to other special families and society at large to educate them and harness acceptance for our cause.
