Here at Anthos House, our therapists and teachers have a wide variety of experience across a variety of clinical diagnoses.
We believe that when “special needs” individuals are met with honour, respect, and dignity, they can flourish and usually succeed in life far beyond expectations.
The answer lies in providing an environment where safety, creativity and acceptance are experienced in a deep and profound way. It is only then that progress can be made.
Here are the therapies you will get at Anthos House:
Behaviour therapy is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on reducing behaviour problems and promoting adaptation skills. Behavioural therapy uses psychological techniques to improve physical, mental, and communicative skills.
Cognitive therapy is the opposite of behaviour therapy. Cognitive therapy focuses primarily on the thoughts and emotions that lead to certain behaviours while behavioural therapy deals with changing and eliminating those unwanted behaviours
Physical therapy (PT), or sometimes called physiotherapy, focuses on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, and strength and endurance.
Your child may be evaluated by a physical therapist to assess muscle and joint function, mobility, strength and endurance, oral motor skills such as feeding and talking, posture and balance, even the status of the heart and lungs.
Occupational therapy is a treatment therapy that helps people achieves independence in all facets of their lives. If your child has physical disabilities or developmental delays, occupational therapy can improve their cognitive (thinking), physical and motor skills as well as address psychological, social, and environmental factors that impact your child’s functioning.
Speech therapy is a clinical program aimed at improving speech and language skills and oral motor abilities. This means talking, using sign language, or using a communication aid.
Children who are able to talk may work on making their speech clearer, or on building their language skills by learning new words, learning to speak in sentences, or improving their listening skills.
