Occupational & Speech Therapy Unit

 

Occupational Therapy: (OT)

Occupational Therapy (OT) is the use of treatments to develop, recover or maintain the daily living and work skills of people with physical, mental or developmental conditions. In OT, the therapists work with the people of all ages who need specialized assistance to lead independent, productive & satisfying lives that have been affected due to physical, developmental, social or emotional problems. Occupational Therapist work on the upper extremities of trauma patients, CVA and other neurological, orthopaedic and psychological dysfunctions. 

Speech Therapy: (ST)

It is a therapeutic treatment of speech defects and disorders, especially through use of exercise and audio visual aids that develop new speech habits. This is an important therapy for people with speech problems, swallowing, articulation, voice disorders, stammering etc. 

A brand new, state of the art Occupational Therapy Unit has been commissioned at PSRD which is well furnished and well-structured according to therapeutic requirement. It includes a sensory room, cognitive therapy room including fine motor, gross motor area and activities of daily living for more focused therapy.  Sessions are tailored according to patient conditions and progress.

Success Story

(Speech and Language Therapy)

Yashfa Kayani is a patient of 4 years' old who came to us one and half months ago with speech and language disorder. Her reception was good but she used few words for communication. After intensive speech and language therapy she has improved 90%. Now she can use sentences to convey her message. It is a great success for us. May Allah bless her.
