What is Natural Environment?
Natural environment is any place the child spends a significant amount of time with family and friends during growth and development. This is the home, family-member’s homes, schools and daycares, parks and playgrounds, and other places in the community where the child needs to have access and independence.
Does ACT Speech therapy offer clinic and on campus services to my child at school?
ACT speech therapy offers medical based pediatric therapy in the natural environment and on campus at daycares, preschools and elementary schools during the day for patients with an IEP.
Do you offer in clinic services if I think my child won’t progress in the home?
Yes, we offer in clinic services within Pediatric Possibilities located in Matthews, N.C. This allows us to use space in a sensory-based clinic to work with your child.
How do Home-Based/Natural Environment therapies help my child?
The greatest ability to learn and progress can be gained in the child’s own home or other natural environment setting, as this is the place where the child spends the majority of time playing, learning, and moving. A child’s day-to-day routines with family support during therapy interactions will promote confidence, independence, and create opportunities for growth.
