Occupational Therapy: Warning Signs & Diagnosis
Common occupational therapy issues involve sensory processing and regulation problems, motor coordination difficulties, feeding and eating concerns, and challenges with planning and organization. Red flags such as frequent, unusual tantrums, poor body awareness, avoidance of eating utensils, and difficulty completing basic, independent tasks, may suggest that your child could benefit from occupational therapy. After diagnosis, we'll develop a plan to work with your child and reduce or eliminate the problem behaviors. Learn more about warning signs on our occupational therapy diagnosis page.
Speech Therapy: Warning Signs & Diagnosis
There are many red flags that may indicate a problem in speech and language processing. If your child displays difficulty following directions, has poor articulation, appears to ignore or not respond to his or her name, has problems understanding abstract language concepts, or has trouble appropriately interpreting messages nonverbally (through facial expressions, for example), speech and language therapy may be beneficial. At our therapy center, we'll evaluate your child to determine the particular type of therapy necessary, and we'll work with you and your family to develop a plan to improve your child's speech and language function. Learn more about warning signs on our speech therapy diagnosis page.
Whether your child has difficulty interacting with peers, speaking clearly, or controlling motor function, we're here to help. Contact us for information about our services and to learn more about our therapy programs.
