Occupational Therapy and Sensory Intervention

Children who have sensory issues that interfere with learning and daily living skills, and/ or need strategies that will improve their motor skills to enable more effective functioning.

Areas of intervention include providing an individualized sensory ‘diet’ (activities to help with sensory issues); activities to develop life skills, motor skills, coordination and hand functions; and training and providing home based programmes for the family to carry out some necessary activities in the home environment. The sessions comprise a combination of activities to help in integrating the senses, developing motor coordination, and some ‘table top’ work.

Behavior Modification
Behavior modification therapy would be provided to replace negative behavior patterns with desired behaviors or promote behavior change.
Communication Therapy
This program is based on individual needs of the child. Which includes many communicating strategies like Picture Exchange Communication System, Augmentative and Alternative Communication. These activities are carried out in group and individual sessions.
Life skill

Life skill skills for students with special needs are very important and valuable for them to get an education. With this provision is expected they will be able to live independently by not / less dependent on others. This skill training focuses on the various skills to produce a product in the form of real objects that are beneficial to life. By learning the various skills expected, children with special needs can gain a perceptual experience, appreciative experience, and creative experience.

Social Skills
Students with social skills needs may have problems interacting with peers and/or adults. They may misinterpret social situations, may seem uncomfortable with others and may feel victimized. Under this program individual and group sessions are conducted to target social goals.
Art Therapy

For children with special needs, how they deal with the world is different from the rest of us, but there are definite ways to soothe their fears while helping them improve on a number of levels. Art Therapy is an alternative form of therapy that can help a child with special needs work through issues that are troubling to their development.

This can include-

  1. Physical,
  2. Emotional,
  3. Mental,
  4. Behavioral Conditions,

This is incredibly beneficial because it helps the child “unlearn” behavior that has previously been associated with a negative emotion or situation, and replaces it with positive change and behaviors.
