Treatment Philosophy

Easterseals Central Illinois provides treatment and interventions that are guided by proven and promising practices. While we emphasize treatments that are based on scientific research, we also try to stay on the cutting edge of treatment and our therapists have training in a number of innovative strategies.treatment model

We use a Focused Treatment Model of Care. Therapy programs are short-term with clearly identified Focused Functional Outcomes. Functional outcomes are clear statements about real-life skills. They are written in family-friendly language and reflect the changes that families want to see for their children and themselves.

Focused Functional Outcomes are designed to:

A plan is developed for each client/family receiving services.

Developing the plan is a team effort with parents, clients and service providers. The purpose of the plan is to develop functional outcomes to guide the team and to define next steps and transition plans for your child. For those in the Early Intervention system, our therapists work closely with your Early Intervention Service Coordinator to develop an Individualized Family Service Plan and to make sure your child and family receive the services you need.

Each interval of care should address no more than two functional outcomes. The therapist will monitor your child’s progress, and change your home program as your child advances. Once those outcomes are met, a new Interval of Care may start to address additional functional outcomes. If outcomes are met and all priorities have been addressed, your child will be discharged from therapy.
