Journey Learning Center utilizes a low staff-to-child ratio, which enables us to provide individualized, comprehensive and intensive programs overseen by certified professionals. Family involvement is key to our comprehensive approach. Each full-time student (5 days a week), will receive 2 hours of individual Speech Therapy and 2 45-minute sessions of individual Occupational Therapy per week. Other therapeutic interventions will be utilized based on each child's individual needs.
Speech Therapy services focus on functional communication skills using therapeutic play, facilitation of peer interaction, and language building activities. Oral motor skills and articulation are also addressed according to each child’s needs. Therapy is conducted through both individual and group sessions.
Occupational Therapy addresses a child’s ability to participate in daily living activities. Occupational Therapists assist children with social-emotional, physical, cognitive, communication, and adaptive behavior challenges. Specific areas emphasized include gross and fine motor coordination, visual-motor abilities, visual-perceptual skills, sensory processing, play skills, self-help skills and safety awareness.
