Activities such as tongue exercises, speech practice, and use of visual aids help children to correct speech disorders. Speech therapy is available in Spanish.
Occupational therapy in children helps them improve physical and social skills while building self-esteem and mental acuity. Through a variety of fun activities, children better prepare themselves for school and other daily activities. Teachers identify hindrances for each child and are thus able to help them in specialized ways. Occupational Therapy allows the provider to work to meet the child’s specific needs for activities of daily living.
