The Learning Center offers a variety of therapy services (occupational, speech/language, music, and physical therapy) designed to help children progress towards age-appropriate skills. All therapies are provided for 35 or 50 minute sessions. Goals are individualized to help work on each child’s unique needs. Services can be provided at the Learning Center, the child’s school, or within the child’s home. The Learning Center is out of network for all medical insurance companies. Parents are required to pay for services and upon request, will receive a generic insurance receipt that may be submitted for an insurance claim.
Many children who attend the Learning Center for occupational therapy have difficulty with fine motor skills such as handwriting, typing, and shoe tying. They often struggle with jumping, running, and hopping and can have sensory issues with sounds, smells, and food textures that make focusing at school problematic. Our licensed pediatric occupational therapist help children learn to calm their sensory seeking/avoiding bodies and gain age appropriate fine and gross motor skills.
The Learning Center’s speech and language therapy helps children learn to communicate. The Center specializes in helping children who have articulation and communication processing issues. These problems may be related to Apraxia, select mutism, expressive and/or receptive language disorders, and autism.
Children usually attend speech or language therapy once a week for 35 or 50 minutes, and when appropriate, they are given home programs to continue progress throughout the remainder of the week. Services can also be provided in the child’s school, home, or at the Learning Center.
Music therapy engages children in musical activities to reduce anxiety, improve cognitive functioning, promote physical rehabilitation, or enhance interpersonal communication. Our certified music therapist encourages children to listen to music, sing, play musical instruments, or compose music to progress towards each child’s therapeutic goals.
Some children have difficulty walking, running, or performing other age appropriate motor skills. This can be caused by a medical condition or general low muscle control and/or weakness. Through physical therapy exercises and practice, our licensed Physical Therapist helps children improve their functional and gross motor abilities.
