Data Gathering


Founded on the fundamental premise that carryover of new skills is maximized when the skills are learned in a natural environment. The activities that encourage growth are custom designed to reflect experiences that a developing child encounters within his or her community.

Data Gathering

Balanced Assessment

We begin the evaluation by assessing the areas of concern followed by additional questions regarding your child's development, medical history, and skills.


Milestone Creation

Following the evaluation, we discuss setting goals for you and your child to accomplish while your child is in therapy and beyond.


Applied Implementation

With each goal in mind, we apply opportunities to engage in successful activities that promote optimal growth and development.
