What is Angelfish Therapy?
Angelfish Therapy provides aquatic therapy with licensed Physical and Occupational Therapists. They are specially trained on working in the water through our one-day Totally Treatment workshop and continuing education videos. We see a variety of diagnosis such as Developmental Delay, Hypotonia, Sensory Processing Disorders, Autism, Motor disorders, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Chromosomal abnormalities, Rett’s Syndrome and many more.
We use the therapeutic properties of the water to enhance our sessions and treat multiple sites at the same time. We work on core strength, motor planning, self-regulation, sensory processing, bilateral coordination, body awareness and more, all in a dynamic 45-minute session. We provide individual therapy, semiprivate and small groups where we can add the social component, as well as parent child classes. We see children as young as 6 months up to 21 years old.
Aquatic Therapy Social Story
Our quick one minute social story can be helpful to ease your child’s anxiety and help prepare them for upcoming therapy sessions. This video will introduce your child to the various equipment used and provide them with a visual schedule of what to expect in their therapy sessions. This visual tool will help with your child’s transition into the water.
Please let your therapist know if any other visual aide would be helpful with your child in the water.
