Therapy Services at FAME
Our professional physiotherapists make sure the child gets the motor exercise they need to maintain and develop their abilities and prevent deformation.A team of speech therapists and pathologists work with the child to better their communication skills both one-on one and in groups, based on their individual capabilities and needs.
Language Therapy addresses cognitive (thinking) problems involving listening, paying attention, understanding, memory, organizing thought etc., where the child can speak but not in sentences, makes grammatical mistakes, has difficulty learning new words, and reading.
Communication Therapy addresses social problems involving interest to interact, adapting to people and the environment, where the child can speak but only when he chooses to, doesn’t follow instructions, avoids people, answers irrelevantly etc. Alternate and augmentative communication skills are introduced to those who are non verbal
Mobility – Activities like rolling, crawling, supported walking using railings or a rollator, and wheel chair mobility are part of this training. These activities make them more independent in moving around their environment and in turn improves their cognitive and exploratory skills.
Sensory processing/integration - Activities on the swing, trampoline, ball pool etc are carried out to help children who have sensory processing difficulties (tactile, vestibular and proprioception).
Balance /Coordination - (Motor Skill Training) Activities like crossing over obstacles to reach a destination ,climbing stairs, jumping, hopping and ball playing are to name a few. Activities like crossing over obstacles reduce secondary injuries and help them in their inclusion at school, home, work place and community
Joint mobility and stability - These are carried over to prevent/slow down the occurrence of contractures and deformities of all the joints, to enhance mobility and augment a stable posture to perform functional skills
ADL skills - Activities of daily living like undressing, dressing, feeding, and other grooming skills are carried out with the help of the other team members of the multidisciplinary team and the parents. For children and young adults with cerebral palsy great care is taken on their posture and emphasis is laid upon the mechanical and environmental constraints of movement to make them more purposeful and energy efficient
