Individualized care

We work collaboratively with you to formulate a treatment plan tailored to meet your child's specific needs.

We are not a therapy "factory"

Let's face it, smaller is friendlier. Our close-knit therapy team is: accessible, approachable and here to help.

You will know the deal

Throughout the entire therapeutic process, you will know: what we are doing, why we are doing it, and how you can carry it over at home.

Evidenced-Based practice

We use only treatments backed by solid research, not just case study; you'll know we're not wasting your time.

typically used in combination to maximize progress and growth of the individual. These therapies/programs include:

Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy
Early Childhood Education
Sensory Integration, Interactive Metronome
Special Needs Pilates/Yoga
Core, Vestibular, Bilateral, and Movement Protocols
Feeding Therapy
Sound Activated Vestibular-Visual Protocol ("Astronaut Training")

From the Owner

 Dear parent/caregiver,

As our practice has grown, we continue to ensure that our families feel "at home" with every aspect of care. We take into account your child's probable anxieties and any special needs in preparing for their arrival. You, also, need to feel: valued, comfortable and involved; as you are the key player in determining your child's progress.  With our knowledge base and commitment to your child’s well-being and your carryover at home, the sky’s the limit! So come on in, have a look around and be sure to let us know how we can best serve you.
