TRS Learning Center provides assessments, consultations, specialized services for children from birth until adulthood by providing the following the services:


We work on language stimulation as well as the production of speech. Therapy objectives vary according to the individual's needs and abilities and may consist of one-on-one therapy and/ or co-treatment dependig on the child's needs. Through the use of specialized therapy designs and models, selected goals will be achieved using evidence-based practice. Alternative and augmentative communication tools, such as computers, pictures boards or the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) may be used to facilitate functional communication skills. Plans focus on improving the following skill areas:
Receptive Language
Expressive Language
Pragmatic or Social Skills
Articulation
Oral Motor Skills
Fluency
Voice

Therapy groups is emerging as a model of providing the services required by children, their families, and their broader communities of support. Parent feedback indicates that participating in groups provides opportunities to understand their child’s needs and learn strategies and skills to help their children. Therapy groups as a model improve outcomes for children with developmental needs and are accessible to families and communities.

Our Feeding therapy provides multidisciplinary specialized services to address feeding difficulties as a result of a variety of challenges including: fussy eating, sensory sensitivities, restricted diets, medical issues and behavioral difficulties. Clinicians will also work to develop oral motor skills and self feeding skills as needed. 

We address skill development in an activity-based setting. Therapeutic goals are incorporated into the child’s daily program where intervention is used to augment the school curriculum to develop those underlying skills that are important for learning. Therapy may consist of one-on-one therapy and or co-treatment may take place depending on the child's needs. Following the individual assessment, the child’s goals are formulated and intervention shall be implemented through individual sessions. Therapy will play a vital role in making each child independent in the following areas:
Self-Help Skills
Gross Motor Skills
Visual Motor and Visual Perceptual Skills
Fine Motor Coordination
Sensory- Motor Processing
Activities of Daily Living

TRS Learning Center provides evaluation and treatment for growing children who have experienced disabling diseases, congenital conditions or traumatic injury. Our physical therapists work on improving movement, strength, coordination and balance. They can also help children and teens recover from temporary problems and ones who have long-lasting conditions, including those that affect gross motor skills such as walking, running and playing. We place a priority on family participation and education as a major step toward helping the children regain control of their lives. Services include:
Developmental conditions and birth related injuries
Inherited and congenital limb conditions
Pre- and post-operative care for patients with complex medical needs (such as organ transplants)
Spinal deformities, such as scoliosis
Equipment solutions (such as positioning equipment, wheelchairs)
Performing arts and dance-related injuries
Sports-related injuries
Trauma

Our Sensory Integration Therapy aims at improving the way a child's brain responds to and makes use of sensory information and how this is used to plan, co-ordinate and organize movement. It also has a positive effect on self-confidence and self-esteem. Our Sensory Integration Therapy uses enhanced sensory in-put combined with planned motor out-put through which a child experiences success. The emphasis is non-cognitive which means that we work with the child's reactions rather than practice specific skills. Sensory Integration Therapy does not “teach” a child new skills, nor does it directly supply experience or practice in those areas of development that are causing concern. It involves the active participation of a child (and therapist) in a way that facilitates interaction with the play environment. To you or your child as an observer, Sensory Integration Therapy sessions should seem like just playing. To a therapist, Sensory Integration Therapy sessions will be specifically designed to match and develop the child's nervous system needs.

Our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy Program is managed through a behavior consultant (BCBA) who is certified by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. This is done in conjunction with Functional Learning Center in Canada (www.functionallearning.ca). Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) focuses on the principles that explain how learning takes place. Positive reinforcement is one such principle. When a behavior is followed by some sort of reward, the behavior is more likely to be repeated. We use the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to bring about meaningful and positive change in behavior. Our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy sessions can involve one-on-one interaction between the therapist and the child or in a small group instruction. All areas of development are covered including speech and language, social skills, play and cognitive skills, motor and independent living skills. In our Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program the collection and analysis of data regarding progress is constant. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) programs are individualized and respond to the particular developmental needs and behavioral deficits and excesses of each child. The collection and analysis of data guides programming and provides concrete measurement of the child’s progress.

We implement Educational Intervention Plans as a result of the Psych-Educational assessment. We offer Learning Support for every child who requires additional support to be successful in their school setting or any child who has difficulty in a regular classroom setting.

We assist and guide the child to become an independent learner who can do the work independently. Our Tutoring program aims to supplement what is done in the classroom and during an individual's study time, not substitute for it. We utilize strategies, such as reviewing class materials, discussing the text, working on sample problems, and predicting test questions.

At TRS Learning Center we offer a variety of reading programs. A reading intervention program is carefully selected according to each child's individual needs and abilities. Multi sensory programs that have been proven successful over the years and are research based are used with children. The programs used include: Fast ForWord, Alpha to Omega, and Jolly Phonics.

Early Intervention is a therapy and educational support service that helps to equip young children with special needs with functional skills e.g. fine/gross motor, cognitive, communication, social, and self-help skills for learning and living. Early Intervention may begin at any time between birth and school age as it is important to maximize the potential of the child during the optimal learning window. Our Early Intervention Program offers a small group learning environment to prepare children for future integration into the mainstream school setting. Our curriculum adopts a holistic and multidisciplinary approach. It is comprised of activities that involve school curriculum (group intervention) and individualized educational plans (one-to-one intervention). An individualized and customized education plan (IEP) is mapped out for each child to address the learning needs.
