Some parents may opt for a screening as a first step to determine if services are needed, or if a more comprehensive evaluation is warranted. Out therapists will discuss their recommendations as part of the screening process, and if requested, will prepare a written report.
Most children benefit from one to one therapy sessions. There are times when a small group session is recommended to incorporate socialization and increase participation. Out therapists will help you determine which approach is best for your child.
Not sure where to begin? Our therapists will discuss all of your concerns and guide you to the appropriate discipline.
We work closely with parents, caregivers and other professionals to maximize the child’s potential and to facilitate the treatment process.
Home therapy programs are provided to supplement the child’s individual or group therapy sessions. A home program can include a home visit, a sensory diet, or a list of suggested tools for home use.
