The Children’s Program at UCP provides therapeutic and educational services to children from birth to age five with developmental delay and their families.
Therapy is provided in the home, childcare, preschool or in our facility. With UCP’s team of skilled therapists, we can provide a holistic approach — along with a variety of child friendly equipment and settings allowing therapy to be play with a purpose.
From building with blocks to writing and cutting, UCP’s occupational therapists are knowledgeable in fine motor dysfunction and can develop activities to build strength and coordination as well as to adapt activities to increase independence and sensory awareness.
Physical therapy services promote gross motor skills such as sitting, creeping and walking. Physical Therapists can be a resource for adaptive equipment and orthotics to facilitate positioning and mobility to increase a child’s independence in daily activities.
Speech and Language Therapy:
Speech therapy targets overall communication skills, as well as the necessary prerequisite skills for communication. Our speech therapists and occupational therapists work closely together to evaluate and treat feeding & swallowing disorders.
Developmental Therapy (For Children ages Birth to 3):
UCP special instructors provide families with research based concepts and techniques on all areas of a child’s development. Our special instructors specialize in cognitive (problem solving/thinking skills), skills for independence (dressing, feeding, choice making), and personal social development.
