If you have a child with developmental problems or autism spectrum disorder, put them in an environment where they can gain skills to communicate, learn and socialize. And using the Intensive Therapy Programs can help them.
At Hope AMC, a complete state-of-the-art medical care facility for children in Dubai, the intensive therapy specialists rely on evidence-based therapy methodologies to help young children improve their capabilities.
So, if you are looking for an intensive and complete care for your child and help reinforce appropriate behavior in your child while improving communication, social, and learning skills, the pediatric intensive therapy programs are the answer.
What Health Conditions do Intensive Therapy Programs Work for?
Intensive therapy programs are suitable, safe, secure and beneficial for children with the following conditions:
- Genetic syndromes
- Cerebral palsy
- Developmental delays
- Ataxia or Athetosis
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spasticity (high muscle tone)
- Hypotonia (low muscle tone)
- Spina Bifida
What to Expect from Early Intensive Behavioral Therapy Intervention?
The early intensive behavioral therapy includes occupational therapy, physical therapy, feeding therapy, speech and language therapy. This therapeutic model works together with all these tools to ensure positive reinforcement. Time to time assessment is performed to measure their skill development.
As your child moves through the intensive therapy programs, you can expect them to receive less guidance as they learn and gain confidence performing new skills. Children and young adults can benefit from the program. However, when you introduce an early intensive behavioral therapy program as early as possible, the success rate skyrockets.
Personalized intensive therapy programs are determined on the basis of a child’s age, diagnosis, medical history, parent goals, and current level of participation in therapies. We at Hope AMC provide a multidisciplinary approach to the achievement of a family’s goals, combining occupational therapy, physical therapy, feeding therapy, speech and language therapy.
The methods and tools used in our multidisciplinary approach may include Spider Cage, Cuevas Medek Exercises (CME), and several other tools, aimed at promoting lasting changes in body structure and movement that can improve a range of motion, stability, coordination, and enhance postural and movement patterns, in addition to promoting increase in blood supply.
There is a short-term therapy program too, which many families choose for an urgent need or crisis that makes it the best option either before or after a higher level of care. However, Hope AMC recommends the use of early intensive therapy programs in combination with other therapy modalities to address health and mental conditions in children.
