Individualized

Treatment is designed specifically for each patient, depending on the results of the comprehensive evaluation. The patient is treated on a 1:1 basis and treatment plans are adjusted daily.

Intensity

Research has shown that the intensity of treatment directly relates to outcome—the more intense, the better the outcome. At the Morris Center, patients ages 5 to 17 will receive a medical leave of absence from school and attend therapy 4-5 hours per day, 5 days per week for approximately 9 weeks. Patients ages 18 and greater can be treated with similar schedules of intensity. When treated daily, the gains far exceed the gains resulting from equivalent hours of therapy received only 1 - 2 days per week.

Follow-Up

To be certain that skills generalize, patients come to our Transitional Unit 2-4 times per week for approximately 10 weeks following treatment. The purpose of TU is (a) to ensure the patient is practicing the newly acquired skills in daily schoolwork, (b) to establish optimal working behavior and organizational skills, (c) to generalize and reinforce the newly acquired language and sensorimotor integration skills, and (d) to help the patient become independent and self-confident.

Medical

Our consulting physician is an integral party of the evaluation and treatment teams. This neurological expertise ensures that all aspects of nondevelopment are being considered. If a patient has an attention deficit, the physician has access to hourly measures of attention per day, optimizing medical management.


Suspect Learning Difficulties?

UNLOCK LEARNING POTENTIAL, ACHIEVE ACADEMIC & OCCUPATIONAL SUCCESS, AND BUILD SELF-ESTEEM

The Morris Center provides a unique, research-based treatment program that helps children and adults improve weak skills, achieve academic success, build self-esteem and reach occupational goals.

Our centers, located in Gainesville and Ocala, Florida, provide a comprehensive evaluation and treatment program for children and adults with language based learning disabilities, including dyslexia, as well as sensory processing, motor, behavior and attention deficit (ADHD) disorders.

TRANSDISCIPLINARY MODEL

Using an interdisciplinary model since 1986, we have treated more than 700 clients. We offer a scientifically proven, intensive, but short-term treatment approach that brings immediate and long-term results for the prevention and the treatment of learning, sensory processing, motor, behavior and attention difficulties.   All treatments are developed and implemented on an individual basis. We specialize in helping each client learn to strengthen weak brain processes and create new strengths to unlock his/her true potentials (e.g. reading, spelling, writing, speech, comprehension, verbal and visual memory, verbal and visual processing, sensory processing, motor skills, problem behaviors, and attention), all of which help improve self-esteem.  Overall, we help individuals achieve academic and occupational success.
