Achieving Milestones

We’re here for you.

Please stay tuned for upcoming community outings and events 馃檪


About Us

We provide therapeutic services to improve and meet developmental milestones for children from birth to 21 years of age. We take pride in building relationships between client, caregiver, and therapist to improve functional independence. Our goal is to be accessible to clients and caregivers in the settings where they need the most assistance.

Services

We provide skilled occupational therapy services focused on feeding, behavioral strategies, handwriting, fine and visual motor skills, safety awareness, social and emotional skills, self-care skills, and other specialty services upon request.
