The goal of occupational therapy is to help children become more independent in everyday tasks. Examples of skills an OT might work on include:
Speech therapist, who specializes in the evaluation and treatment of communication disorders, cognition, voice disorders, and swallowing disorders.
The treatment include physical exercises to strengthen the muscles used in speech (oral-motor work), speech drills to improve clarity, or sound production practice to improve articulation.
A remedial therapist is a person who helps students to overcome learning disabilities. They focus on assisting individuals, who suffer from conditions that interfere with learning, such as ADD, ADHD, and those with language and reasoning disabilities such as dyslexia (difficulty with reading, writing, and spelling) and dyscalculia (difficulty with mathematics), reverses letter sequences, slow to learn prefixes& suffixes, trouble understanding oral discussions and expressing ideas and relating events in sequence.
A learning center is an independent space set up within a classroom that provides students with an opportunity to engage in activities that enrich their learning, according to Scholastic Instructor. We give students access to art materials, books and manipulative that provide a hands-on learning experience.
We present children with opportunities for teamwork, hands-on learning, social interaction, real-life problem solving and to work on open-ended activities. According to our Instructor, students who need more time to internalize information can benefit from our center because our center provide a more individualized lesson than a whole-class setting.
Physiotherapists help people affected by injury, illness or disability through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice.
They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease.
