Have you ever wished there was a one-stop shop for your family’s needs? Just one office where you could see your dentist, doctor, and dermatologist all in one place? While we don’t offer those services at AchieveAbility, that’s the idea behind a multidisciplinary clinic. We aim to create an environment where families can find the best care for their children in one place. Our services include behavioral therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy, and we are certified to treat children with a range of different needs, including autism spectrum disorder, speech difficulties, cerebral palsy, and more.
What’s The Upside To A Multidisciplinary Clinic?
Multidisciplinary clinics are a hub for comprehensive care. But what exactly does that mean? When our team of professional clinicians, each from their particular field, comes together to collaborate on your child’s care plan, you can be assured that you get a well-thought-out and individualized plan that you can’t get in other places.
You’ll no longer have to explain your child’s diagnoses to each new practitioner because you’ll work with a team that has collaborated on a care plan so each member is well-versed in the care your child is getting elsewhere. This level of teamwork ensures that changes can be made smoothly and in a cooperative manner that works best for your child.
Multidisciplinary clinics are also beneficial for the clinicians that work there. It enables them to reap the benefits of being members of a successful team, provide the best quality care to their patients, and get support from other therapists.
What Services Do You Offer At AchieveAbility?
At AchieveAbility, we specialize in three primary categories; applied behavioral therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy.
Applied Behavioral Analysis
Applied Behavioral Analysis, or ABA, is a therapy that teaches patients new behaviors to replace their existing, ineffective behaviors. This is especially necessary for people on the autism spectrum. Areas of focus in applied behavioral analysis include communication, working through unwanted behaviors, social and play skills, independence, and daily living. This type of therapy is one of the most effective ways to support children on the autism spectrum as they learn to navigate the world amidst their developmental challenges.
Our speech-language pathologists work to help children find more effective ways to communicate with people around them. Children who attend speech therapy may experience a range of issues, including stuttering, speech disorders, and late talking. Speech therapy can also help children with difficulty swallowing or who are picky eaters.
Occupational therapists help children and adults learn basic behaviors that enable them to perform daily tasks. Children who attend occupational therapy may be diagnosed with physical, emotional, or mental developmental delays. Developing fine motor skills helps these children use the bathroom independently, feed themselves independently, care for their grooming and hygiene, and learn to manage their daily tasks. Necessary for an independent life. This type of therapy has benefits that extend well into adult life.
As you can see, each of these individual therapies is essential to helping children live robust, happy lives. When trained, compassionate professionals integrate their services collaboratively, their patients benefit. Clinics like ours provide holistic care that cannot be found elsewhere. We see time and again how our patients and their families have a higher level of success and more enjoyable experience through the therapy process because of the method we employ.
At AchieveAbility, we are focused on bringing together therapists with the expressed purpose of providing the best service possible for your children. If you’re looking for a clinic to help your family navigate your child-specific needs, contact us today. We’d love to help!
