There are generally three types of therapies provided to children who qualify through the school system: occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy.
Occupational Therapy – Services to assist children with learning skills needed for play and daily living; designing and providing assistive devices.
Physical Therapy – Services to identify and help prevent or reduce movement difficulties.
Finding the right doctor, dentist or home care services can be challenging for a child with a disability. The Department of Mental Health and Hygiene recently launched a resource database for children and youth with special health care needs to help parents find the resources that they need. This online database contains over 800 resources for Maryland families, is user friendly and 508 compliant for those with visual impairments.
