Our experiences of collaborating with professionals in the fields of education, behavior, occupational therapy, medicine, physical therapy, holistic healthcare, speech therapy, and special education have enhanced our awareness to how a child’s physical well being, sensory issues, communication challenges and learning styles affect a child’s behavior and level of functioning.

                Treatment Approach:

We believe in a team approach to treatment that involves consultation and communication with family members and other professionals involved in your child’s life.   

We may refer to professionals who will assist us in examining aspects that may be contributing to the child’s current level of functioning to aid in developing a treatment plan that is tailored to the uniqueness of each child. 

We ask for active involvement from the whole family in the treatment process.  We request that the application of principles and techniques learned in therapy also be used at home in order to expedite your child’s treatment..
