What Is Pediatric Intensive Therapy? How Can It Help Children With Autism?

pediatric intensive therapy

At regular checks, your child’s doctor will search for symptoms of developmental delays. If your child exhibits any of the signs of autism spectrum disorder(ASD), you’ll most likely be directed to an ASD specialist, such as a child psychiatrist or psychologist, pediatric neurologist, or developmental pediatrician, for an evaluation.

The goal of this evaluation is to choose the right treatment to improve your child’s capacity to function by minimizing symptoms of ASD and promoting development and learning. Early therapies in your child’s preschool years can aid in the improvement of important social, communicative, functional, and behavioral skills.

The variety of autism spectrum disorder therapies and interventions available at home and in schools can be bewildering, and your child’s needs may change over time.

Therefore, if your child has been diagnosed with ASD, seek advice from professionals on developing a treatment plan and assembling a team of professionals to fulfill your child’s needs. Children who undergo intensive therapy to overcome their deficiencies, especially at a young age, have the best outcomes, according to top researchers. There are many reputable rehabilitation centers that provide effective intensive therapy for Autism in Dubai.

What is Intensive Therapy?

Intense therapy is any treatment that is more extensive in terms of quantity, duration, frequency, or scope than ordinary therapy. The goal of the intensive sessions is to teach ways for reducing symptoms and providing assistance to the child while still allowing them to live at home and participate in school and family activities.

Intensive therapy is becoming more common as a therapeutic option for children, with a growing body of evidence supporting it. Children who get intense therapy demonstrate faster gains in strength, balance, independence, functional mobility, and gross motor function measure scores than children who receive typical treatment.

Why Choose Intensive Therapy for Autism?

Intensive Therapy is an effective model for pediatric therapy (children’s rehabilitation) that is widely utilized around the world. This one-of-a-kind, cutting-edge, and highly effective pediatric intensive therapy program is for children and adolescents with neuromuscular diseases and a wide range of conditions. Intensive therapy is suitable for those who want to improve their functional and developmental skills quickly.

Who Should Undergo Intensive Therapy Program?

For children with cerebral palsy, developmental delay, preterm, stroke, spina bifida, hypo/hypertonia, chromosomal abnormalities, syndromes, acquired brain injuries, developmental coordination issues, and undiscovered conditions, intensive therapy is appropriate, safe, and effective.

Children as young as one year old can begin an intensive program and continue into young adulthood.

What Does an Intensive Therapy Program consist of?

Intensive treatment occurs frequently and for a short period of time. Whereas a child may receive hourly physical, speech, and occupational therapy weekly or biweekly in a standard model of treatment, children who participate in intense treatment may receive an hour of each of these disciplines 5 days a week for 3 weeks. Children are exposed to hundreds, if not thousands, of repetitions of certain exercises, developmental movements, and/or functional abilities over a very short amount of time under the intensive approach.
