What To Expect On Your First Visit

A therapist will perform a thorough evaluation assessing the current abilities and challenges. We will assess physical, cognitive and emotional barriers of the child while they are participating in various activities. Collaboratively, the caretaker and therapist will identify goals and methods of reaching those goals.
