Yes! We are OPEN FOR BUSINESS via Teletherapy for Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy during this time of social distancing to keep you and your family safe! These services are just like in-person sessions but done via your computer, phone or tablet. For these sessions, a caregiver will need to help get your child onto our online platform and may need to participate in the session. This is a great opportunity for you to learn more about your child's therapy and how you can support these therapies in your home! As of 3/17/2020, 100% of our sessions are being conducted via Teletherapy.
Welcome to the Alfano Center, a dedicated provider of occupational and speech therapy in Miami since 2003. We provide professional support to individuals with communication challenges. We also seek to improve their abilities and make it easier to communicate and attend to their duties at home, at school, or at work.
Speech therapy is offered in in person or via Teletherapy in English, Spanish, and Sign Language for monolingual and multilingual hearing or deaf individuals with a variety of communication disorders.
Occupational therapy is offered in person or via Teletherapy in English and Spanish for assistance with daily activities, resulting from sensorimotor, self-help, and postural deficits, including ADD/ADHD, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, among others.
Auditory-Verbal Therapy, offered in person or via Teletherapy in English and Spanish, uses listening and spoken language as the primary means of communication for infants, toddlers, and young children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.
Deaf Family Literacy Academy serves deaf children from birth to age 12 and their families in need of assistance with literacy and communication in American Sign Language (ASL).
This program prepares children with delays for typical classroom settings. The program is based on learning through play in everyday routines that allow children to have fun while developing the skills they need to transition to typical preschool or kindergarten programs.
We offer speech and occupational therapies tailored to the unique conditions of each person, including individual therapy sessions and small group sessions for school preparation and social skills building. These sessions can be conducted in our center, at your child's school or daycare, or via Teletherapy in the comfort of your own home. With our experienced therapists, we create individual therapy plans with specific goals and targets. We design these programs to gradually enhance the skills of the individual and minimize the effects of their delays in their everyday lives. Through this approach, we have helped many children and adults live a normal life despite their communication and physical challenges.
