Our occupational therapy services address sensory processing and integration difficulties, motor coordination and perceptual difficulties to help children develop the foundations they need to successful with the occupations of childhood: school, play and self-help skills.
Speech/language therapy addresses a variety of issues including: language difficulty, poor articulation, autism, augmentative and alternative communication, apraxia of speech, late talking, stuttering, reading and writing difficulties, pragmatic language deficits, and higher-order thinking skills.
Emerge’s Specialized Group Sessions offer fun and intensive opportunities to address important skills including: social, communication, sensory processing, fine motor, visual motor, handwriting, and coping. We have programs for children ranging from age 3 to 12.
Parent Education Workshops are led by our team of Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Pathologists specifically for parents and families on a variety of popular topics such as development of social skills, understanding sensory processing, play, language development, and so much more. In addition to offering workshops, Emerge hosts a variety of events that are open to the community such as resource fairs, play-dates, and more.
While a young brain has more plasticity than an older brain, research is showing that the brain is capable of making changes at all ages. Sensory processing challenges can impact a person’s participation, coping strategies, and their overall quality of life so it is never too late to get started.
Emerge is proud to be a “teaching clinic,” providing a variety of experiences for college students. Both the occupational and speech-language departments provide fieldwork/clinical placements to graduate students. Additionally, undergraduates and graduate students have opportunities to shadow a therapist or volunteer with some of our small groups.
Our Professional Workshops and Community Presentations are completely customized so that the material is tailored to the specific needs of your organization in relation to learning about childhood development and strategies for helping children succeed. Workshops can be planned as a one-time event or set up to be a series of on-going trainings. CEUs are available for some workshops.
