Therapy they actually look forward to
A child with a speech disorder may have difficulties in many arenas of their lives -- learning, development, health, social, and emotional. We work closely with parents, schools, and other professionals to maximize outcomes.
Our OT services help children develop strength, body awareness, balance, and perceptual abilities. These are needed to acquire gross and fine motor skills and improve your child's interactions the their environment.
Some of the many programs we offer
Your child's program(s) will be tailored to their own unique needs and objectives.
The Sequential Oral Sensory feeding program focuses on increasing a child's comfort level in exploring and learning about the different properties of foods, including texture, smell, taste, and consistency. This approach allows a child to interact with food in a playful, non-stressful way.
It's easy to get started
A thorough evaluation by one of our speech pathologists will give us the best starting point. It will help pinpoint your your child's issues so we can provide the most appropriate, effective, and efficient treatment.
