ACCESS Sensory Kids (ASK) is a clinical program for children that incorporates occupational therapy (OT), physical therapy (PT), and speech and language therapy (ST) for those with autism, ADD, and other behavior-related conditions.
WeeZee-The Science of Play is Westchester’s first “integrated therapies” program for children that combines vital therapy services featuring sensory equipment, programs, and classes. Does the program work? Studies led at Johns Hopkins University and the National Institute of Health have shown academic, social, and athletic improvements for children who attend WeeZee weekly.
“ASK implements comprehensive individual care plans for a diverse population of school children, ages zero to 21, challenged with physical, emotional or developmental issues, or in need of enrichment in a variety of skills,” says CEO Louise Weadock.
Weadock, the founder of ACCESS Nursing & Healthcare Services, ASK, and Weezee-The Science of Play, is also a registered child psychiatric nurse. Weadock says her goal is to make ASK “the strongest pediatric clinical service program in Westchester County.”
The program is personal to Weadock, who has a daughter who was diagnosed at age three with autism spectrum disorder.
“I had to cut back on my work schedule to drive Shannon from one therapist to another. The flexibility and convenience of working with the sensory experts at ASK will save parents both money and time,” Weadock says.
WeeZee helps accommodate parents with busy schedules—with services like the after-school program where children can receive homework help, therapy, and nursing care—while still being affordable and easy.
