We begin with you and your child from evaluation through treatment and discharge. We collaborate with you and your child to: evaluate skills and needs, set treatment goals, and to provide therapeutic intervention to achieve successful outcomes. We encourage parent participation in therapy sessions so that there is successful carry over of skills into your child’s life outside of the clinic. We will also collaborate closely with teachers, coaches and other caregivers to achieve the highest level of success in every day activities. As much as possible we strive to transition your child to the most beneficial community activities (be it karate, soccer, gymnastics, or cheerleading) for his/her continued success and development upon discharge from therapeutic services.
