We use a play-based, child-centered approach to provide children with the “just right challenge” that elicits motivation while also improving foundational skills.
SERVICES & PROGRAMS.
Our experienced staff of occupational and physical therapists work closely with children, parents, teachers, and other professionals to gain a fuller understanding of each child’s challenges.
Our therapists are trained to administer and interpret a variety of tests and measures to develop an individualized treatment plan. Diagnoses include sensory processing disorder, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and other medically based syndromes.
Individual Occupational Therapy
Therapy is typically recommended for once or twice per week. Children use suspended and climbing equipment to improve motor skills and sensory processing. Depending on your child’s needs, sessions may include a portion of time spent on fine motor skills, visual motor skills, and handwriting.
Individual Physical Therapy
The physical therapist will determine the frequency and intensity of treatment. Children will work on gross motor skills, coordination, muscle strengthening, gait training, neuromuscular re-education, therapeutic exercise, along with recommendations for adaptive equipment and orthotics.
For current clients, your therapist is available for in-office, home, or school consultations as needed. Please schedule this directly with your child’s treating therapist.

In order to best evaluate progress, a baseline of ability is determined using a combination of observation, standardized testing, and interviews. Basic background information provided by parents and teachers helps to form a contextual understanding of a child's difficulties. Standardized assessments are used to quantify a child's abilities and serve as a basis for comparison as progress is achieved. Several standardized assessments are available, and your child's therapist will discuss the best option with you. The therapist can also learn a great deal with direct observation of your child in either a clinic, school, or home setting. Following the evaluation, the therapist will schedule a consultation to discuss the results of the evaluation.

Summer Intensive Programs
Intensive therapy allows children to practice skills on a daily basis in order to promote improved function across environments. These small groups allows children to generalize skills learned in individual therapy to a dynamic social environment.
Move, Say, & Play
Social Skills Groups
This eight-week program is appropriate for children ages 4 through 7. Groups are run by a speech therapist and an occupational therapist who utilize concepts from the Social Thinking curriculum. Target skills include appropriate peer interactions, taking turns, social language, following directions, spatial awareness, fine motor skills, and problem-solving.
