Services For Children
We provide assessments and therapy for children in a fun, play-based environment. We use a wide variety of toys, games, music and interactive activities that make learning enjoyable (for the therapists too!). Parents participate in the therapy process so they may effectively continue the therapy goals at home and incorporate them into their child’s daily routine.
