Empowered Learning Transformation Centers
“Helping Children be their best”
The mission of Empowered Learning Transformation Centers is to provide a collaborative, coordinated, and caring approach for therapy services for children, and to assist in educating parents in early problem detection and working with their child to attain the highest developmental potential.
Empowered Learning Transformation Centers is a therapy clinic that provides pediatric Occupational Therapy evaluation and treatment of infants and children. Services are aimed at improving a child’s development and ability to function effectively and independently within the family, community, and school. Primary treatment utilizes sensory integration and neuromuscular techniques through goal directed fine and gross motor activities and play. Our therapists have advanced training in pediatrics and provide intervention for diagnoses and disorders including but not limited to:
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
High Risk Infants
Sensory Processing Disorder/Dysfunction
Occupational Therapy is directed at facilitating a child’s development and ability to function effectively and independently. Primary treatment utilizes sensory integrative techniques, which expose a child to different types of sensory input through play to promote a desired response to their environment.
Sensory experiences include touch, movement, body awareness, sight, sound, and the pull of gravity. The process of the brain organizing and interpreting this information is called sensory integration. Sensory integration provides a crucial foundation for later, more complex learning and organized behavior. For most children sensory integration develops in the course of ordinary childhood activities. Motor planning ability is a natural outcome of the process, as is the ability to adapt in incoming sensations. For some children, sensory integration does not develop as effectively as it should. When the process is disordered, a number of problems in learning, development, or behavior may become evident.
Intervention also emphasizes neuromuscular techniques, which involve the movement of a child’s joints and muscles to help train the nervous system to respond appropriately to changes in position and posture.
Parents are encouraged to participate in weekly activities to enhance their child’s skills. Therapeutic Listening uses sound in combination with sensory integrative treatment techniques. CDs are electronically altered and vary in musical style, quality of sounds, and level of refinement. Selection is very individualized for each child.
Therapists engage children through exciting, goal directed fine and gross motor activities, and play to facilitate skills and function in everyday activities.
