Twinsburg, Ohio (PRWEB) August 16, 2013
Twinsburg-based Peak Potential Therapy (PPT) has announced the addition of behavior therapy to their speech therapy and other services for children with special needs. Led by Hannah Flynn, MS, a certified ABA consultant, this critical service launched by PPT is designed to create life-changing development in the children that they serve.
“Adding behavior therapy to the services that we offer to our families is a way that we can put a dynamic methodology to use in our area,” said Holly Reimann, MA, the founder of PPT, “Though the program itself can be intense, it can significantly change the development of a child, especially when started with young children.” Flynn agrees and is enthusiastic about what PPT’s behavior therapy can accomplish. She said, “Our behavior therapy program targets all areas of a child’s behavior – everything from toilet training to academic work, eliminating problem behaviors, and can assist with mastering social skills. While the core of our technique is Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, we also incorporate other techniques such as floor time and verbal behavior. This eclectic approach allows for the child to not only acquire skills in a therapeutic setting but to also generalize those skills across all settings.”
Currently, PPT has a team of three Master’s-level certified therapists who can implement this revolutionary program. With a flexible, individualized style, Flynn and the PPT team can create lessons that are offered once a week with home support or can even run a full home-based program that will meet all of the state requirements for home education. Flynn believes in the power of this program. She said, “I have clients who started with 50 words or less and now have thousands of words in less than a year. Other clients that began therapy with limited social skills are now mainstreamed into their public school creating valued friendships with their peers. Other children were potty trained within a week. This program provides hope and practical developmental solutions for kids and their families.”
Reimann agrees, “A lot of parents get a diagnosis and they feel lost. Our goal at PPT is to support not only the kids, but the families as well. Parents can always feel comfortable calling us with questions and for support. We are passionate about what we do and want to make a difference. This program is life-changing.”
