We understand how hard it is to watch your child struggle. You might feel perplexed or overwhelmed. You worry they may be missing critical skills they need to develop during the early years of childhood. Below are some services we provide:
Comprehensive evaluation with a child involves the use of standardized tests, clinical observation, and parent interviews.
Caregiver-only sessions are done with caregivers and therapist monthly to review progress and update goals. Caregivers can schedule additional appointments for mentoring on specific challenges.
OT Treatment Sessions
The child attends weekly OT sessions, parents are encouraged to be part of these sessions. The frequency of sessions will depend on family goals, schedule, and progress.
Research shows that increased frequency of therapy is strongly related to better motivation and success. Our intensive therapy sessions occur more frequently and may provide faster and longer-lasting outcomes.

What is Intensive Therapy?
This method of treatment is based on the latest research by Dr. Lucy J. Miller and Dr. Sarah Schoen at the Star Institute for Sensory Processing Disorder in Denver, Colorado. Clinical experience combined with recent research shows that frequent repetition is needed to make measurable changes. In most instances, children show faster improvements with lasting results in short term therapy administered more frequently, as compared to once a week therapy over years.
Kids that can benefit from intensive therapy:
- Children who struggle with feeding are ideally addressed 2-3x/week. Feeding skills are worked on in the clinic as well as within the home environment for maximum benefit.
- Children who are over responsive or under responsive to sensory input benefit from therapy 2-3x/week to learn strategies to thrive in all environments
- Children who have frequent and unexplained meltdowns are signs of regulation difficulties; addressing this 2-3x/week allows for quick changes in behavior
- Children that have hemiplegia or reduced use of arm/hand due to trauma have seen improvements within 1-2 weeks in functional hand use. Constraint Induced Movement Therapy involves restricting use of unaffected arm to “force use” of affected arm. This is combined with therapy 3-5x/week.
