Personalized Treatment Plans

Client Modalities

 

1-ON-1 CLIENT / THERAPIST FOCUSED

Consumers are seen at a 1:1 ratio but have the opportunity to change based on each individual’s level of care. Although we encourage socialization and collaboration amongst others, we design sessions on what is best for each specific client.

SOCIAL EVENTS

Each client is able to voice their interest of social activities they would like to attend. Examples could be concerts, plays, and sporting events.

COMMUNITY OUTINGS

Community outings entail a 1:1 therapist/client ratio by using community integration to explore Fort Wayne and the surrounding areas. During these outings we look at appropriate social interaction, manners, and life skills that may be improved upon. Examples include: going out to eat, laser tag, sky zone, movies, mall, and going to the grocery store.

ADAPTIVE PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES

Through adaptations, we hope to break down barriers by implementing a carefully designed physical education instructional program for an individual with a disability.

TRAINING AT SPIECE FITNESS AND PLANET FITNESS

F.L.O.W. will conduct a training regimen that is safe and productive for the clients. We believe exercise and being active is essential to wellbeing.

GROUP ACTIVITIES

Our activities include a 1:2+ therapist/client ratio that involves participating inside of a facility to play board games, ice breakers, cooking, crafts, cards, and/or video games.

GROUP OUTINGS

Our outings include a 1:2+ therapist/client ratio community integration session to explore Fort Wayne and the surrounding areas. Examples include: appropriate inclusion of other clients to perform a group outing.
