Therapies and special needs services are an integral part of on-going treatment for many special needs children. Treatment information, especially that of alternative therapies, is often scattered and hard to find. Yet parents, especially those with newly diagnosed children, feel they are competing with time, knowing that early intervention is crucial.
There are treatment philosophies and solutions all around the world. Some are ancient while others are more recent; some are proved effective through clinical studies while others do miracles to individuals; some are available locally while others require uprooting the family and restructuring life.
Blossomville.org strives to fill in the gap. Below is the A-Z list we have compiled. If you cannot find what the therapy and service you had in mind, please suggest it!
