Occupational Therapists (OTs) focus on improving the meaningful activities of an individual’s daily life, including home activities, educational activities, play and leisure activities, and self-care activities. Our occupational therapists assess motor development, sensory processing, and social interaction to determine the barriers interfering with efficient participation in those meaningful activities. more info
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) focus on improving all aspects of communication to increase functioning in the home, at school, and in the community. Our SLPs perform a thorough evaluation of areas of concern, including articulation (speech sound production), fluency (stuttering), language development, reading and writing. We also examine areas of social and cognitive functioning such as engagement, play skills, executive functions, reasoning skills, and problem-solving skills. more info
Members of our professional staff from both the speech-language and occupational therapy departments are trained in the well-known SOS Approach to Feeding. This approach examines the underlying causes of feeding difficulties and addresses them using a non-invasive systematic hierarchy using play-based techniques and family involvement. Both group and individual therapy sessions are used. more info
Art Therapy/Counseling is provided by Sarah Melancon, LPC, ATR. Sarah uses art as a non-threatening outlet for the non-verbal communication of thoughts and feelings. Many of our kiddos who learn differently experience anxiety, low self-esteem, and difficulty adjusting to their environments. Sarah is here to help address these internal conflicts in a fun and developmentally appropriate way. more info
Our professional staff is keen at observing the needs of the children they serve. We offer special sessions of reading and writing groups, teen social groups, our PALS social group, Handwriting Groups, Feeding Groups, and several others intermittently throughout the year. more info
