Need therapy to accommodate your busy schedule? We understand the chaos of life and working parent schedules. We provide services out in the community such as daycare centers.


We offer evaluations for individual areas of concern, such as speech, language, feeding or lactation. We also schedule combination evaluations that assess multiple areas of concern during one evaluation time. An evaluation is dynamic and interactive lasting around 90 minutes. Typically, evaluations consist of standardized assessments, clinical observation, parent input, and review of your child’s medical history. With this comprehensive format, we can hone in on the best plan of care for your child including specific goals. The clinician will review evaluation results, individualized therapy treatment recommendations, and frequency of therapy sessions.


Therapy is provided on a one-to-one basis. Therapy will look different depending on your child’s goals and strengths. Therapy sessions are hands on and utilize evidence-based practice techniques through a play-based learning approach. Treatment sessions last around 45 minutes with 15 minutes allotted at the end of the session to answer any questions and review strategies/ provide ideas for parent carryover throughout the week. Goals are revised as your child makes progress. We celebrate all big and small milestones!
