Other Therapy services (Hydro Therapy, Hippo Therapy, AD Assessment & Distribution) :
Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is very important for children with disability. Hence, all WMTS special needs children attend hydrotherapy sessions once a week in Dhaka. International School, Dhaka (ISD) has allowed WMTS to use their beautiful pool for hydrotherapy sessions involving our children with special needs.
Horse riding therapy: Disabled children who attend either WMTS or the Pediatric Unit e.g. those with CP or ASD, can take part in horse riding therapy sessions. These sessions are supervised by a physiotherapist, occupational therapist; the WMTS horse keeper, support assistant and ayah. There is a horse riding therapy session register that is maintained by the school. There is a detailed schedule for horse riding sessions, and both a list of WMTS students list and list of children from the Pediatric Unit are added to the schedule. Pediatric unit horse riding sessions are supervised by the Pediatric unit.

Assistive devices for WMTS students: If a therapist decides that an assisted device is required for a child, they will work other CRP departments to ensure that the child receives the device. Departments that therapists work with include the Special Seating Unit, P&O, the wood workshop, the metal workshop, and APT. Assistive devices can be used to maintain posture and proper body alignment. The devices are regularly monitored by the CRP therapists. Every 6 months, therapists arrange a follow-up session with the department that provided the assistive device.
