Supportive Therapies

De LaSalle Academy offers the following on-site supportive therapies

 

Evaluation

Evaluation determines the basis for difficulties in school, at home, or during recreational or occupational situations. Different levels of evaluation are available depending upon the purpose and the amount of time and resources required. The appropriate level is selected by the clinician as part of the pre-evaluation process.

Consultation

Consultation is offered to parents and professionals to review diagnostic findings, to establish an appropriate intervention plan for the difficulties identified during evaluation, to test or discuss strategies, and to review gains or obstacles.

Treatment

Treatment is integrated and eclectic. A variety of techniques, approaches, and materials are used. Depending on the particular needs of the student, team therapy sessions are also available. These sessions are lead by any combination of occupational therapist, counselor or speech-language pathologist. Each clinical area, after careful consultation with other related service providers and classroom teachers, provides an intervention or treatment unique to its discipline.
