Our therapy program provides behavioral, physical, occupational, and speech therapy evaluations and ongoing services for various age groups. Philosophically, our team is committed to a concept of therapy that involves not only direct therapist/client interaction but also the engagement of the client’s caregivers (both at home and school) in the carryover of learning into everyday situations.  This may include direct therapy in the classroom, for clients attending our developmental center, whenever possible to establish new patterns and skills as well as educating the client’s teacher and or family members as to the client’s specific needs, the current level of development, and appropriate short term expectations and goals. Our service also includes specific suggestions and activities for the teacher and caregivers to encourage the development of these goals.
