We believe that children and their families learn and grow together. A solid foundation, established early on in life, indicates a positive prognosis for future success. Each child develops at their own rate and we aim to meet them where their current strengths are, while assisting them in making progress towards their goals. We help children learn the skills required to independently engage in the world around them.

Speech and Language Therapy
What is it?
Pediatric Speech and Language Therapy covers all aspects of communication, from birth into adulthood. As soon as a baby is born, they’re communicating with their environment using strategies like eye-contact and crying. As that baby grows the communication demands become more complex. Communication is the essence of human interaction, the process by which we express ourselves and engage in the world around us.
A Speech and Language Pathologist (therapist) addresses all aspects of communication. This may include; increasing expressive language, supporting language comprehension, stuttering, improving speech sound clarity, and finding alternative methods of communication for non-verbal children.
What is it?
Occupational Therapy (OT) helps children succeed and function in the most important areas of their lives; self-care, school, and play. These are considered a child’s occupations. An Occupational Therapist looks at a child holistically to determine where delays or limitations exist and how to overcome them. If a child is displaying physical, social, emotional, or cognitive delays, they may benefit from the support of an OT. Our method is to examine all systems, sensory, cognitive and emotional, in order to obtain a comprehensive picture of the child
and how to best support their development.
