Evaluations

We will begin by evaluating your child's sensory, motor, coordination, and regulation skills to determine whether a delay or disorder may be present. Our process includes:

  • A parent interview

  • Review of medical and developmental history

  • Informal assessment measures

  • Formal standardized tests

  • Recommendations for therapy

Following the evaluation, we will share our initial impressions and discuss your child's strengths and weaknesses. We will determine your child's eligibility for services and work together to create a plan that helps them reach their goals.

Therapy

We take a multi-disciplinary approach to support your child's development as a whole. We are committed to tailoring our therapy sessions to their needs through a combination of:

  • Individual or group therapy sessions

  • Play-based and child-led approaches

  • Clinician directed activities 

  • Co-treatment sessions

  • Parent education and coaching

Parents and caregivers are encouraged to observe or participate in sessions! After each session, our therapists will take the time to discuss your child's progress, provide written handouts, and give you therapy activities for home practice.
