Blue Sky Therapy Services

One of our main goals is to make therapy REAL and FUN!


 


Therapy Services that Blue Sky Therapy Services offer are:

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and develop social skills, helping people recovering from injury to regain function through retraining and/or adaptations, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Occupational therapy services typically include:
● an individualized evaluation, during which the client, family, and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals,
● customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and
● an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or to modify the intervention plan based on the patient’s needs and skills.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy (PT), also known as physiotherapy, is one of the allied health professions that, by using mechanical force and movements (bio-mechanics or kinesiology), manual therapy, exercise therapy, and electrotherapy, remediates impairments and promotes mobility and function.
Phyical Therapy

Speech Therapy

Training to help people with speech and language problems to speak more clearly. 

 Speech Therapy

Dysarthria is a motor speech disorder that results from impaired movement of the muscles used for speech production, including the lips, tongue, vocal folds, and/or diaphragm. The type and severity of dysarthria depends on which area of the nervous system is affected. Cases can be very subtle after a neurological insult. Many times the patient isn’t even aware of it. In some cases it will be more obvious during a physical activity or during physical and occupational therapy. The patient may be easily fatigued resulting in shortness of breath, their speech may become slurred at the end of sentences and/or their voice may trail off due to poor diaphragmatic strength or control.

Apraxia / Dyspraxia is a neurological disorder that can affect planning of movements and co-ordination as a result of brain messages not being accurately transmitted to the body.

Verbal Dyspraxia refers to difficulty in making and coordinating the precise articulatory movements required in the production of clear speech.

Oral Dyspraxia refers to difficulties in making and coordinating movements of the vocal tract (larynx, lips, tongue, palate) in the absence of speech.

These features are consistent with deficits in the planning and programming of movements for speech and are noted to increase with greater syllable length and motoric complexity. Dyspraxia can affect oral motor control, breath support for speech, articulation, rate, prosody and fluency.
