Speech/Language Therapy: Diagnosis, treatment, and remediation of receptive/expressive speech and language; oral motor deficits; and feeding problems.

Specialized treatment techniques and services provided include:

Neuro-developmental Treatment (NDT): Use of a variety of hands-on techniques to enhance voluntary movement against gravity and facilitate rotational patterns and equilibrium responses in order to promote more complex skilled movement.

Sensory Integration: The enhancement of a child's ability to take in sensory information from the environment and perform with an appropriate adaptive response.

Myofacial Release: A safe, effective, gentle hands on technique designed to decrease pain, decrease restrictions and increase range of motion.

Wilbarger Protocol: A deep pressure and proprioceptive technique designed by Patricia Wilbarger to address sensory defensiveness as part of a sensory diet.
