Treatment

Therapy sessions are most often weekly or biweekly individual sessions.  Therapy goals are collaborated with the parents/caregivers. Therapists use a variety of treatment techniques to help their clients achieve their goals.  Home programming suggestions are offered with each session to optimize the child’s ability to achieve their goals.  

Consultation

Consultation is available to families who are unable to bring their child in for regular therapy sessions, to help them set up and monitor home programs. Therapists can also provide consultation to the child’s school/child care/camp/IBI program as necessary.     

Education

Parents are continually provided with information about their child and their therapy needs to help them achieve their goals.  Parents are always encouraged to sit in on each therapy session to learn from their child and the therapist. Formal parent training sessions are also available.
