Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy gives specialized assistance to children who need help leading independent, productive, and satisfying lives due to physical, developmental, social, or emotional problems. Occupational therapists use the occupations of self-care, play and leisure activities to increase independence, enhance development, and/or prevent disability.

Physical Therapy

Diagnostic evaluation and treatment are provided in a variety of areas, including:

  • Achieve age-appropriate developmental milestones (e.g., crawl, sit, stand, walk)
  • Participate in age-appropriate gross motor or school activities with peers
  • Range of motion, strength, mobility, posture, balance, endurance for independent function
  • Improve your child's ability to independently negotiate his or her environment (home, school, community)
  • Actively participate and contribute to the society at large
  • Aquatic Therapy

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy helps develop the strength and range of motion children need to move through their environment easily and effectively. Physical therapy often includes help with developmental milestone goals like sitting, standing, crawling and walking. It also includes range of motion goals like strength, mobility, posture, balance, and endurance for independent function.

ABA Therapy

ABA Therapy utilizes the principles of Behavior Analysis to improve socially significant behaviors for children demonstrating deficient adaptive learning skills and excessive problem behaviors that are interfering with learning and social interactions. ABA Therapy is implemented by specially trained Behavior Analysts and Behavior Technicians. ABA therapy is used to help children acquire many behaviors including adaptive communication skills, self-help skills, and play skills; in addition, ABA therapy can be implemented to decrease maladaptive behaviors such as aggression, noncompliance , and self-injury. ABA Therapy at ATS can be provided at the clinic, in the home, or out in the community. Parent/caregiver training is also a significant aspect to ABA therapy.

Applied Behavior Analysis Therapy

ABA Therapy utilizes the principles of Behavior Analysis to improve socially significant behaviors. This is advantageous for children demonstrating deficient adaptive learning skills and excessive problem behaviors that are interfering with learning and social interactions.

Feeding Therapy

Feeding therapy at our clinic focuses on progressing the patient's abilities to eat food of multiple varieties of textures and tastes. Each patient is evaluated and specific goals are established for the patients. The therapists make a safe and enjoyable environment where food is fun. Treatment involves broadening the spectrum of foods that a child eats and educates them on how to eat the food. Our therapists try to implement carry over to all environments by teaching the parents how to feed their children or how to encourage them to self-feed. This may involve a baby switching from breastfeeding to a bottle, a toddler eating solids instead of just puree, getting a child from a GT tube to oral feeding, or getting a child who eats a limited selection of food to expand their food repertoire.

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy provides a unique and motivating environment for children to work on Physical, Occupational, or Speech therapy goals. A variety of goals can be effectively treated in the aquatic setting while building confidence. The water provides gentle resistance, buoyancy, and warmth, and aids in increasing strength, targeting abnormal muscle tone, and relaxing muscles for easier mobility. The water also supports the muscles while working on balance, posture, and overall mobility. Hydrostatic pressure from the water aids in self-regulation and body awareness by enhancing sensory feedback. The pressure also supports the diaphragm which improves speaking and respiratory ability.

Counseling Therapy

Counseling therapy establishes a safe space to discuss whatever concerns an individual or family may have. Major life changes, parenting, difficulties in relationships, trauma and mental health concerns are some of the reasons that individuals seek counseling. The relationship that counseling provides allows individuals to explore their circumstances, work with a professional to identify solutions to concerns and to work towards better life outcomes. Individuals and families meet with a Licensed Mental Health Clinician (LCSW, LPC, LMFT) to discuss concerns. Advanced Therapy Solutions provides counseling for individuals of all ages, pediatric through geriatric, and families. These sessions are completely confidential and are often covered by insurance.
