At Sunny Days, we help children with developmental delays and disabilities reach their full potential and live enriching lives. Our staff of professional child and behavioral therapists work with children and their families to reach that goal, but sometimes therapy alone isn't enough. Some children's unique needs call for certain equipment and assistive technology to be used to directly assist an infant or toddler who has a disability.
If you're concerned that your child may need assistive technology, a Sunny Days practitioner working with your family will make recommendations to you as to whether or not he or she does. If it's believed that assistive technology is needed for your child to reach his or her full potential, then a practitioner will also make recommendations to you for the selection, acquisition and/or use of an assistive technology device that will help your child.
You know how to help your child, and we know how to help children with developmental delays. Together, we'll help your child achieve his or her fullest potential.
Assistive Technology Recommendations
Just as Sunny Days conducts evaluations and assessments of a child's needs before recommending early intervention or other therapy programs, it does the same for children who may need assistive technology. Our assistive technology services begin with an evaluation of a child's needs, including an assessment of all functional skills in an environment that would be typical for the child. If equipment or technology is believed to be something your child can benefit from, you'll get recommendations for selecting, designing, fitting, customizing, adapting, applying, maintaining, repairing and/or replacing the assistive device.
Our services don't stop there, though. We'll help families by coordinating specific therapies, interventions and/or services designed to work in conjunction with assistive technology devices. Oftentimes these are associated with existing education and rehabilitation plans and programs. Finally, we get involved with families and anyone else who will be involved in the major life functions of the child by providing training on how to assist the child in the usage of the device.
