Inside Special Care

Learn About Our Therapies

Occupational Therapy

In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.

Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy focuses on receptive language, or the ability to understand words spoken to you, and expressive language, or the ability to use words to express yourself. It also deals with the mechanics of producing words, such as articulation, pitch, fluency, and volume. Adults and children alike may need speech therapy after a stroke, or traumatic accident that changes their ability to use language; for children, it generally involves pursuing milestones that have been delayed.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is provided by physical therapists, who are licensed health care professionals. At Special Care your child’s physical therapy will be evaluated, diagnosed, and managed with a treatment plan, customizing it to each individual needs.

Behavioral Therapy

Behavior Therapy is focused on helping an individual understand how changing their behavior can lead to changes in how they are feeling. The goal of behavior therapy is usually focused on increasing the person’s engagement in positive or socially reinforcing activities. Behavior therapy is a structured approach that carefully measures what the person is doing and then seeks to increase chances for positive experience.
