Play-based, child-led therapy services with a strong focus on parent education
Therapy should be fun! The goal for every session is to see a child smiling and laughing while simultaneously reaching therapeutic goals. We cherish play as the primary occupation of children that is self-initiated and enjoyable for the child and understand that play drives skill acquisition in all aspects of childhood development.
Sessions are NOT drilling a child and demanding a response, they are not practicing the same activity over and over, they are not following a strict schedule, they are not completing a set number of activities. We practice skills in a child's most natural context through play.
Play In Motion
Sensory input leads to a motor output. We use sensory play to help children build the foundational skills needed to feel secure to process and manage the sensations that they feel all day long. Once a child feels safe and shows signs of connection, they are able to participate in therapy through self-directed play without feeling pressure to perform a specific activity, but rather advanced through therapeutic goals while engaging in a their number one occupation: PLAY!
