Therapies and Social Work Services
As an Early Intervention Provider, TEIS Early Intervention helps children 0-3 with developmental Challenges. TEIS has the most highly trained Early Intervention Therapists on our team to help coach you to help your child Thrive and reach their potential.
Our range of services includes Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Developmental Therapy, and Nutrition Therapy, as well as services for Vision, Hearing, Feeding, Behavior, Sensory Processing, and Torticollis. TEIS also provides Social Work Services.
Occupational Therapists (OTs) work with families to address sensory processing concerns, helping children overcome sensory difficulties. OTs help infants and toddlers who have feeding challenges or are picky eaters.
Occupational Therapy is great for helping children keep up with everyday activities they will be expected to perform in their first social and educational settings. This includes the fine motor skills like reaching and grasping that are essential to play, as well as the self-help skills of using utensils and dressing.

A Physical Therapist helps children with conditions like Torticollis and Plagiocephaly, as well as balance, movement, trunk control, and other activities involving the large muscles of the body. These include rolling, sitting, crawling, and walking. Physical therapists may also make recommendations for adaptive equipment when necessary.

Social Work Services
In Early Intervention Support, the role of a social worker is to provide a variety of services geared to the special needs of children and their families. In this role, the social worker acts as an adjunct to evaluators and therapists. At TEIS, we consult in areas of parent and child interaction, family dynamics, mental health, domestic violence, and crisis intervention related to infant and toddler development and family needs.

Hearing affects speech, language, learning, and social skills. Identifying deficits and taking steps early is crucial to helping children 0 to 3 years of age in their ability to communicate and socialize. The earlier a child who is deaf or experiences hearing loss receives services, the more likely they can catch up to their peers in speech and socialization skills.
