Physical, occupational, and speech therapy are offered to children under the age of three in their homes through New Perceptions’ Home-based Early Intervention Program, a United Way-funded program. Referrals are received through Kentucky’s First Steps program (click here for more information).
• Physical Therapy helps coordinate and strengthen large muscle groups (for example, walking, running, riding a bike, throwing a ball).
• Occupational Therapy helps small muscle movement (for example, writing, using scissors), sensory integration (sensitivity to touch, sound, light, food), and eating disorders.
• Speech Therapy helps develop early language skills and eating disorders.
Emphasis is placed on teaching parents/caregivers the skills and knowledge needed to facilitate their child’s growth and development with activities occurring during the child’s daily routine.
