Why is Occupational Therapy the key to your child’s success?
Occupational Therapy addresses all of the most important and basic skills that the body and brain relies on to function in order to do the simplest task of picking up a toy to a more challenging task such as reading a novel and writing a book report. These basic skills include areas such as muscle tone and strength, balance, coordination, fine motor, gross motor, visual, auditory and other sensory processing skills. By improving the weaknesses in these areas, we help to get your child back on track in their development to make learning skills such as moving, jumping, playing, riding a bike, reading, writing, paying attention in class and even eating food much easier for your child and less of a concern for you.

Why is Speech Language Therapy important for your child?
Communication is what links us to each other and helps us to understand and participate in the world around us. Difficulty with understanding language, being able to express thoughts and needs, and using appropriate social skills can make daily life frustrating. Speech language therapy focuses on all the skills that are necessary for understanding language, expressing oneself with language, and speaking clearly and fluently. Oral motor skills, language and articulation can be addressed at an early age to prevent future problems. Click HERE to learn more about how your child can benefit from Speech Language Therapy.
