Speech therapy (or technically Speech Language Pathology) works to improve children’s understanding of language and their expression of thoughts and feelings. This therapy works with all the cognitive aspects of communication, speech and language.
We regularly utilize:
- Intensive Interaction
- Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS)
- Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA Therapy)
- Total Communication
- Spark Communication (Hanen Program)
Occupational Therapy & Sensory Integration
Occupational therapy helps children to learn the skills of living. This means any activity a child needs to be able to do in daily life- from self-care, to handwriting.
Sensory Integration is helping children improve self-awareness, self-confidence and self-esteem. This is done through the medium of play that involves a range of sensory experiences.
ABA is short for Applied Behavioural Analysis. Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA) is a therapy based on behaviourist theories that “correct” behaviours can be taught through a system of rewards and consequences.
Movement therapy helps stimulate neural pathways to help children increase focus. This powerful learning tool can help children regulate their emotions as part of their mental growth, to improve the body image, coordination and motor skills. It also helps in increasing awareness teaching them how to behave in various environments.
Music therapy focuses on using music to address the physical, cognitive, emotional, and social needs of a child.
Nutrition therapy is a more holistic way of managing a child’s nutrition. The dietitian/nutritionist also works with the parents of children who are picky eaters. Nutrition therapist may suggest alternate diets to help the child and families who are following special diets like GFCF diets or any other special diets.
Our Parent Counselling program helps parents of children with diverse educational needs face pressures and helps them learn to cope with the problems in ways that will enhance, rather than, hinder the growth of their child.

BEMER can improve restricted blood flow in the smallest blood vessels and thereby support the body’s own self-healing and regeneration processes. The core of BEMER Physical Vascular Therapy is a multi-dimensional signal structure that effectively stimulates restricted or impaired microcirculation. It supports one of the body’s most important control mechanisms for healing, recovery and regeneration processes and can also be effectively used for:
- Improving the supply to organs and tissues
- Supporting the healing of wounds
- Supporting the immune system
- Increasing physical and mental performance
iLS (Auditory Integration Therapy)
iLs addresses the development of whole brain/body integration through a staged developmental approach, starting with the fundamentals of sensory integration and then extending through more complex cognitive functions, including language, self-expression, and social skills.
iLS (Safe and sound protocol)
The Safe and Sound Protocol is a research-based therapy showing significant results in just five days in the following areas:
- Social and emotional difficulties
- Auditory sensitivities
- Anxiety and trauma related challenges
- Stressors that impact social engagement
The most important outcome of teaching word recognition, “is that students learn to recognise real words, not simply sound out ‘nonsense’ words using phonics skills’. Direct Instruction appears the most effective approach for improving word recognition skills in students with learning disabilities. Direct Instruction refers to teaching skills in an explicit, direct fashion. It involves drill/repetition/practice.
