Occupational therapy and Speech Therapy for children with ASD, Asperger’s and Sensory processing disorders.
Terms like Asperger’s, ASD (autistic spectrum disorder) can be devastating for parents who worry for their child’s future. Your child may have been diagnosed by a specialist or your child’s school teacher may have said your child struggles with sensory processing.
Learning requires us to take the information we have received through our senses (hearing, vision, touch, taste and movement) to make predictions of what could happen and then apply what we know. A sensory processing disorder can affect language, emotions, school work or relationships with others. All these children have difficulty using the information available to them and making decisions and predictions based upon this. Our specially trained Paediatric Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists can help develop your child’s ability to take the sensory information and make sense and use the information available.

Most parents who have children with autism notice signs within the first two years of their child’s life. With the right treatment this disorder can be minimised and can help children gain self care, social and communication skills. Here at ABLE Therapy, we can help with Occupational Therapy for children with autism special needs.
Occupational Therapy for Children with Asperger’s
Children with Asperger’s Syndrome often display intense interests, and can have difficulty with social interaction, handwriting, speech and language and can display restricted and repetitive behaviours or sensory behaviors. Our special trained Occupational Therapist at ABLE Therapy can assist with a range of different therapies ranging from cognitive behavioural therapy to improve stress management and occupational therapy.
