The AAC Team Approach
Team AAC understands the unique challenges of transitioning from NICU care to home. NICU graduates are often at increased risk for long-term developmental issues due to prematurity and/or neurologic insult suffered before or during birth. AAC provides an allied health team, consisting of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech pathology that is critical to early evaluation for gross and fine motor skills, feeding, and language development.
Our clinicians are trained to assess and monitor your child’s neurodevelopment and provide early detection of potential developmental delays. The team assigned to your child upon graduation from the NICU can easily assess any potential issues with development within their respective fields in order to provide the appropriate treatment and support to enable your child to reach their full potential.
Our teams provide weekly education for families and caregivers that is based in research and best practices. Family-centered care is at the heart of all we do; your parental voice will always be valued, as you know your child best.
When Timing is Everything, You Need a Team with Education, Experience, & Training
