  • increased vocabulary and descriptive language

  • answering and asking questions

  • engaging in back-and-forth communication exchanges

  • following single- and multi-step directions

HOME

We come to you! Providing services in a child's natural environment is not only convenient for you, but a great way to teach new skills in the exact place a child will be using them. Parents are welcome to be active participants during our in-home therapy sessions.

SCHOOL & DAYCARE

Is your child in preschool or at daycare during the week? We offer onsite services and will send videos and messages home so you don't miss a thing. When appropriate, we will consult with your child's teachers or care providers to offer tips and tools for ongoing practice.

TELETHERAPY

Online therapy is a convenient and evidence-based service delivery option. Whether you live outside our service area or prefer the added convenience of meeting online, teletherapy will keep your child engaged and having fun while learning.

getting started

1

You can email, text, or call us in order to get information on how to fill out our intake form through our user-friendly client portal. We will use this information to make recommendations on the next steps to get started.

2

We will begin services with an evaluation to develop a comprehensive picture of your child's abilities, challenges, and preferences. If your child has a recent evaluation in all areas of concern, we can likely use that to get started.

3

Following the evaluation, we will collaborate to develop a plan of care that aligns with your family's goals and preferences. The length and frequency of our sessions will be determined based on your child's needs.

4

Once therapy begins, we will monitor progress to make sure we are meeting our goals, and make adjustments if needed.

 

We will also check in with parents and caregivers regularly to offer home practice tips and tools.
