In case of specific necessities our hospital proposes individual motor therapies in our modern gym or using our well-equipped sensory room including a warm swimming pool.
Motor therapy helps kids to improve fine and gross motor skills working on muscular strength tone and endurance, motor learning and planning, postural control, sensory processing and body awareness, balance and coordination. Sometimes these objectives are easier to reach starting the motor stimulation in the pool.
Sensory intervention therapy helps kids with sensory issues to reduce difficulties in processing, integrating and responding to sensory stimuli by exposing them to sensory stimulation in a structured and repetitive way. This kind of intervention also has a positive effect on behaviour, motor skills, emotional control and social interaction.
Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of different conditions, including ASD and motor deficits. Hydrotherapy differs from swimming because it involves special exercises that you do in a warm-water pool. Is very effective with toddler with important social interaction deficit and lack of eye contact.
