PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR DAYCARES & PRESCHOOLS:
Two of our highly-qualified therapists, a speech-language pathologist and an occupational therapist, will tailor a presentation to your staff's needs. Topics can include: fine motor skills, feeding difficulties, sensory processing disorder, traits of autism spectrum disorder, and bilingualism. Teachers will learn how to identify children in need of support and what public and private resources are available. At the conclusion there will be time for Q&A with the therapists. Each participant will receive handouts with resources and a continuing education certificate.
HANDS-ON HELP FOR DAYCARES & PRESCHOOLS:
Ever wish you could have a speech-language pathologist or occupational therapist on staff for a day? Now you can! Our speech-language pathologists or occupational therapists can come to your classroom and work directly with your teachers and students. Our therapists can create sensory spaces within the classroom for children with autism and sensory processing disorders, review Handwriting Without Tears, work directly with teachers who need additional hands-on training and help create or implement programs in your school. You will consult with a therapist prior to the visit to plan your specific needs.
SPEECH/LANGUAGE & FINE MOTOR SCHOOL SCREENINGS:
Little Hands Pediatric Therapy provides developmental screenings for children ages one to 10 years including: speech and language, fine and gross motor, sensory processing and visual motor integration. We conduct the screenings during the child’s class time in a quiet room, at no cost to the school.
