Professional Therapies

Evidence-based therapies (therapies that have been shown by research to be effective in improving performance) may be used in conjunction with school accommodations; these therapies may also be administered as stand-alone methods to improve academic success. These include the following:

Auditory Integration Therapy:

  • Improves auditory processing and the way the brain processes information, particularly in normally noisy environments
  • With auditory integration therapy, there may be an improvement in reading, writing, speech, and language development as well as greater abilities in handling noisy environments and social situations. There may also be improvements in comprehension and increased development of neural pathways that could improve handwriting and other fine and gross motor skills

Speech Therapy:

  • Focuses on articulation and fluency (speaking clearly) and resonance (controlling voice pitch and volume). Speech therapy may improve receptive language (understanding and listening), expressive language and pragmatic language (using language in socially appropriate ways). 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

  • This is guided therapy that enables the child or adult to perform better with everyday tasks such as concentrating and focusing on tasks and making appropriate choices in social situations

Sensory Integration Therapy:

  • Helps with organizing and interpreting sensory signals in the environment, particularly for those who are overwhelmed by the many sensory signals that come from the environment such as smells, tastes, and sights

Social Skills Groups:

  • Helps increase social success and gives tips and strategies for confronting the challenges of being socially successful
