On the other hand, clinic-based therapy takes a more global outlook on the well-being of the child and the family. In the clinic setting, therapists will often coordinate with teachers, school-therapists, and physicians. Treatment focuses first on defining the underlying foundations of each child’s challenges. Subsequent therapy focuses on those foundations with goals that encompass success at home, school, public, and later in life.
If you have questions about school or clinic based services and/or the differences between the two, speak to your occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist, and/or school administrator today. Or call us today to schedule your child’s FREE consultation or evaluation.
