Parents are the first and foremost teacher to their children; therefore, it is important that parents learn specific strategies needed to handle their own children. Initial parent education is offered, child assessments are completed, and then an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) is created for each student.
Speech and Language Therapy
Speech-language therapy addresses challenges with language and communication. It can help people with autism improve their verbal, nonverbal, and social communication. The overall goal is to help the person communicate in more useful and functional ways. A speech therapy program begins with an evaluation by a speech-language pathologist (SLP) to assess the person’s communication strengths and challenges. From this evaluation, the SLP creates individual goals for therapy. The therapy take place up to 45 mints, the frequency of the sessions depends upon the recommendation from the SLP.
Occupational therapy (OT) helps people work on cognitive, physical, social, and motor skills. The goal is to improve everyday skills which allow people to become more independent and participate in a wide range of activities. For people with autism, OT programs often focus on play skills, learning strategies, and self-care. OT strategies can also help to manage sensory issues. The evaluation will also identify any obstacles that prevent the person from participating in any typical day-to-day activities.
We provide meaningful and successful inclusion of our students by accepting diverse learners and letting them assimilate with all children. Integration of ABA and clinical services in school programme helps towards the holistic development of the child.
