Treatment Philosophy

All treatment and intervention services are based on focused, functional outcomes, or clear statements about skills and activities that reflect the changes that you and your child want to see as a result of therapy.  Functional outcomes are designed to maximize your child's practical skills such as movement, eating, communicating, getting dressed, interacting with others, or joining in family and community activites.  Functional outcomes provide a clear focus and direction for all our interventions.
