We work with children who have been diagnosed with the following but are not limited to:
Autism Spectrum Disorder: also know as ASD is a neurological and developmental disorder that begins in early childhood an lasts throughout a person's life. It affects how a person acts and interacts with others, communicates, and learns.
Asperger Syndrome: also know as Asperger's is a developmental disorder characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests.
Cerebral Palsy: also know as CP is a group of disorders that affect a person's ability to move and maintain balance and posture. CP is the most common motor disability in childhood. Cerebral means having to do with the brain and Palsy means weakness or problems with using the muscles.
Learning Disabled: a learning disability is a neurological disorder which results from a difference in the waya person's brain is "wired". Learning disabled children may have difficulty with reading, writing, spelling, reasoning, recalling and/or organizing information.
Sensory Processing Disorder: is a condition in which the brain has difficulty receiving and responding to information that comes in through the senses. Some people with sensory processing disorder are oversensitive to things in their environment. Common sounds may be painful or overwhelming.
Epilepsy: is a neurological disorder marked by sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbance, loss of consciousness, or convulsions, associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
Developmentally Disabled: is a diverse group of chronic conditions that are due to mental or physical impairments that arise before adulthood.
Language Delay: is a type of communication disorder. It can be receptive, expressive, or a combination of both. A receptive language deficit happens when a child has difficulty understanding language while an expressive language disorder happens when a child has difficulty communicating verbally.
Fine Motor Delay: fine motor skills are the ability to make movements using the small muscles in the hands and wrists. When achild is not able to use their hands and fingers to hold, manipulate, and use objects when the child is at the right age to do these things.
Articulation Disorder: is a speech disorder involving difficulties in articulating specific types of sounds. They often involve substitution of one sound for another, slurring of speech, or indistinct speech.
Visual Motor Skill Delay: also referred to as a visual motor integration, are the skills that emerge from the integration of visual skills, visual perceptual skills and motor skills that allow us to use our eyes and hands in a coordinated and efficient way. When a child has visual motor skill delays they may have difficulty with copying shapes, handwriting, completing puzzles, remembering sight words and finding information on a page.
