Assessment

Standardized testing and/or informal observations are used to determine the issues underlying the child’s difficulty. Assessments may include a developmental assessment, an environmental assessment, a sensory processing assessment, a writing needs assessment and/or an assessment for equipment needs. Equipment may be recommended to support the child’s physical and/or sensory needs (e.g. hand splints, weighted products).

Treatment

Direct intervention is provided individually or within a small group setting to facilitate skill development within the identified areas of need. Our well educated and highly trained staff use evidenced based and/or “best” practices in a fun and engaging manner to optimize the child’s success and independence.

Consultation

Education, training and ongoing monitoring are provided to the family through consultation. Collaboration with community partners is encouraged with family consent.
