Specialty Services

Each child’s therapy team will develop a personalized treatment plan, using the latest rehabilitation technology and state-of-the-art equipment. Treatments include:

Adapted Seating

Pediatric patients with special needs require specialized wheelchairs that provide upper body support, lower body support, mobility, and positioning. Allied Services therapists assess for the appropriate custom seating which provides optimum positioning to improve function.

Aquatic Therapy

Exercising in the water (aquatic therapy) provides many benefits that exercising on land does not offer. The buoyancy of the water provides a therapeutic environment for the weight-bearing joints of the spine, knee, and hips. This is helpful for children who cannot tolerate exercising on land due to joint pain or can benefit from the support water provides to make moving easier.

Augmentative Communication Device

The device can be a permanent addition to a child’s life in order to supplement or provide a means of communication for children who are severely speech and language impaired or nonverbal.

Feeding Therapy

Some children with developmental disabilities have difficulty with eating as a result of a disruption in the swallowing process. This is a swallowing disorder known as dysphagia. Pediatric speech therapists have advanced training in the identification and treatment of these disorders.

The Picky Eaters Program

Occupational and speech therapists with advanced training address sensory oral motor and behavioral issues that often result in picky eating limited diets.

Handwriting Without Tears

A multi-sensory and developmentally based program for teaching printing and cursive writing. The activities are developed to address each child’s style, including visual, auditory, movement, and touch.

Power Mobility

For young children who are not able to walk power mobility affords opportunities to engage in more independent exploration of their environment. The staff evaluates the child and their function to determine if the use of power mobility is appropriate. If appropriate, therapists make recommendations as to the type of equipment that best meets the child’s needs.

Sensory Motor Program

The sensory motor program is a whole brain learning approach that enhances visual, auditory, tactile, kinesthetic, and fine motor skills.

Social Skills Program

Children with autism spectrum disorder do not acquire basic social skills such as sharing and maintaining eye contact through general experience and observation. This often results in social avoidance, academic difficulties, and problematic peer interactions. Allied Services’ pediatric therapists help to facilitate social skills for success in their personal and academic lives.

Videofluoroscopy Swallowing Evaluations

A special X-Ray test accepted as the standard for detecting and evaluating swallowing abnormalities. This method not only allows for the estimation of children’s risk of aspiration and respiratory complications but also helps in determining dietary and compensatory strategies.

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy focuses on improving binocular vision, oculomotor and visual motor skills for increased success with activities of daily living including reading, writing, and gross motor skills.
