Leaps & Bounds is a speech and occupational therapy program* for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or sensory-motor issues who exhibit limitations in play, school, socialization, and activities of daily living due to:
- Sensory processing
- Auditory processing
- Cognitive communication
- Social skills
- Expressive and receptive language
- Perceptual motor
- Motor planning
- Apraxia of speech
- Dysphagia (feeding and swallowing disorders)
- Executive functioning
- Fine and gross motor
- Balance and coordination
- Visual-perceptual skills
- Postural control/core strength
Leaps & Bounds uses carefully designed activities to drive therapeutic gains. The exciting part of this unique integration of OT and speech goals within a single activity allows a child a full-body, “real world” experience. For example, during table-top activities such as arts and crafts, the OT will be facilitating improved motor planning and postural control, while the SLP will be focusing on following directions and peer interactions, among other things.Therapists will seamlessly collaborate to create these ideal therapeutic scenarios and help maximize each moment of the camp day.*
*Tier 2 allows opportunity for PT collaboration as well.
The program is staffed as follows:
- Occupational Therapists
- Speech Therapists
- Physical Therapist
- Level 2 OT Interns
- Speech student externs
- 1st year OT students
This level of staffing enables us to have a 2:1 ratio (2 children to each staff person). This ratio also lets us work on the child’s individual goals within the context of the group. We do NOT utilize a cookie cutter approach. Every child’s goals are specific to their level of functioning and ability.
Parents are interviewed prior to the program to gather up-to-date information about your child’s goals. We use an assessment tool that helps establish and prioritize the child’s functional goals, and truly creates a system for the parents to be involved in the process. We welcome information from other therapists, schools, doctors, etc. in order to maximize the therapeutic experience.
