DIRECT TREATMENT INTERVENTION MODEL
As parents of a child with a disability, you're likely up to your neck with advice and recommendations. Parents' main problem often isn't lack of knowledge, but, instead, lack of time, energy, and general expert skill required to facilitate the numerous activities. This is where SMILE Therapy for Kids comes in! Although we happily provide parents with home-therapy strategies, that is simply a supplement to our #1 focus during appointments, which is on treatment! We'll utilize the full appointment to lay our therapists' hands on your child, engage your child, stimulate your child, and work with them to get them just that tiny step closer to their goals. If, during your child's appointment, you need to step away and have a break to yourself, we understand. After all, having the most important job in the world (being a special-needs parent) can take a heavy toll, so don't be shy to take a break if you need it. You deserve it! We're happy to provide home-therapy strategies to you at the end of your child's session or even afterwards.
