Does this sound familiar?

Pediatric Occupational Therapy
My son is clumsy, bumps into things, falls often, walks loudly, is always too close to me or others, and gets easily frustrated when things do not go his way.

I would like to stop worrying that he will get hurt because of his clumsiness →
Speech Therapy
My daughter can't stop moving. She refuses to wear certain clothes, refuses to eat certain foods, and gets easily overwhelmed in crowded or noisy places.


I want for her to feel less overwhelmed by these and learn to self-regulate →
Pediatric Physical Therapy
My son is 2 and does not have too many words. He gets easily frustrated because it is difficult to communicate his needs. He is having trouble playing with peers as well.
 
I want him to learn some words to improve his communication and decrease frustrations →

Developing skills. Enriching Abilities. Improving Behavior

Here's how we create real and lasting change

1

EVALUATE

Our team of therapists conduct a thorough evaluation of your child to determine areas of strengths, areas of difficulty, and the root causes of these difficulties to focus therapy sessions accordingly and improve development of skills. 

2

APPLY

Activities are created to engage the child, address areas of difficulty, and practice new skills. Parents and teachers are provided with strategies to work with their child at home and school to ensure carryover of skills for quicker learning and development of these skills.

3

PROGRESS

We work together with parents to set realistic, measurable goals to address areas of difficulty and ensure progress. We use engaging and motivating toys, games, and play to create a positive environment for your child, improve their confidence, learn new skills, and reach the child and family goals.
