Free picture with Santa:

For many children with autism spectrum disorders, challenging behaviors, and other disabilities visiting Santa is a nightmare. Surrounded by loud music, bright lights and too many people at the mall, the whole process can be an overwhelming experience for both the child and his or her parents. That's why the Shandy Clinic is partnering with the 719Moms to bring a sensory friendly Santa to Colorado Springs to offer an alternative for families that aren't able to go to the mall. There will be no twinkling lights or loud music, just a calming environment of people who care and understand. Join us on Saturday. November 29th from 10:00-1:300pm at the Shandy Clinic Central location to get your child's picture taken free of charge. Its our way of helping to make your Christmas special.

About The Shandy Clinic

The Shandy Clinic is a private outpatient therapy clinic serving patients in Colorado Springs, CO with three locations. As a private therapy practice the Shandy Clinic prides itself in personalized, individual therapy in a friendly, family environment. In addition to traditional therapy approaches, the clinic also empowers our staff to think outside the box to find solutions to help our patients make progress.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists work with your child to improve fine motor skills, sensory integration, and activities of daily living. Five main areas we work with include sensory processing, cognition and perception, self care, social skills, and motor skills.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists assist in early detection of health problems and use a wide variety of modalities to treat disorders in the pediatric population. These therapists are specialized in diagnosis, treatment and management of infants, children, and adolescents with a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases. Treatment focus on improving motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance, and cognitive and sensory.

Children with developmental delays, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and torticollis may also be treated by pediatric physical therapists.

Speech Therapy

Speech & Language Pathologists (SLPs) work with children and adults who have difficulty with communication. Speech refers to the way that a child verbally communicates and includes three areas which are articulation, voice, and fluency.

Children with language disorders can show a variety of symptoms from mild to severe that could include difficulty with: listening and following directions, using age appropriate vocabulary, communicating socially with peers and adults, eye contact and other nonverbal communication, and following the rules that tell how to put words together to make sentence grammar.

Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment which enhances the body's natural healing process by inhalation of concentrated oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments as a part of an overall medical care plan.

The Shandy Clinic uses a soft-side mild hyperbaric chamber with a maximum pressure of 1.3 ATA (see pictures below). The Shandy Clinic is utilizing the chamber in a revolutionary way. Therapy sessions (OT, PT, and/or speech therapy) are being completed with the therapist while in the chamber, thereby maximizing the benefits of the oxygenated brain.
