Programs & Services

Every child has an individualized program within the group classroom setting.

Assessments and goal setting occur throughout the year, with the parents and the teaching/therapy team, so that every child's individual needs are addressed.

What makes our program at Silver Creek unique is that therapy--physio, occupational, speech and language and music therapy-- services are provided within the classroom setting. There is also the opportunity for some small group sessions and individual treatment, as needed.

Our philosophy is that therapy is an integral part of the children's day. It is not an exercise program of a specific length, but rather a matter of proper handling, movement, seating, communication and cognitive expectations-developmentally appropriate-- throughout daily routines and play. We are working towards optimum independence in self-help skills and community living for our children.

This integration of services allows your child to continue improving his/her gross motor, fine motor, communication and daily living skills under the guidance of these professionals while enjoying the play, pre-academic and social setting with peers.

Our weekly program consists of four half-days with a wide variety of play-based experiences (Monday through Thursday)

Testimonial

 

Silver Creek has been an incredibly special place for my daughter Madeleine.  When she started at Silver Creek in September her speech was delayed and she was only able to say one word sentences and in only three months she has started stringing together short sentences which has been remarkable.  Her doctor just saw her in December and couldn't believe how much progress she had made in such a short time and thinks her speech is now on target for a 2 1/2 year old.  The staff at Silver Creek are some of the most gifted teachers that I have met and while showing such love and compassion for all their students, they also have the unique ability to push students out of their comfort zone to help them excel in all areas of development.  Thank you just doesn't seem enough for all that your staff do everyday.
