Having 4 kids with special needs we have done LOTS of therapy, both in a medical setting and at home. We have done speech, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. We have also gotten items, such as orthotics, that come along often with the therapies. Kaya when she was around 2-3 got her first pair of orthotics. Hers were called crickets. They were basically a shoe insert that added a little more support than normal. Once she outgrew those no other orthotics were needed, but now with her Ehlers Danlos diagnosis and being flat footed, we are soon going to be seeing pt and will likely be getting her a new pair of orthotics.
We have always loved doing different sensory activities at home. Just having some fun with bubbles or play dough can be therapy. At a young age, play is therapy. It gets them using different muscles. We also used a little kids pool and would put balls or pillows and such and let them have a crash area, or sensory pit.
Bella has done speech and occupational therapy, Kaya has done speech, pt and ot, Louie and Silas both have done speech, ot, pt, and feeding therapy.
