Comprehensive Evaluation 

  • Extensive background information is gathered before we see the child.
  • Only necessary tests are administered, avoiding over-testing.
  • Some children are seen by all of our specialists, some by only one.
  • We develop a complete profile of the child's strengths and weaknesses.

Total Approach to Treatment

  • All information is reviewed to develop an individual treatment plan.
  • Interrelated factors are identified and prioritized.
  • We look for the "whys and hows" of a problem, not just developmental levels.
  • Our team coordinates activities so that progress in one area facilitates growth in another.
  • Current research in education, neurology, and the behavioral sciences form the basis of treatment.

Parents are Team Members

  • We listen to the parental concerns and goals so that we can work together.
  • Parents learn methods to help their children.
  • Family time constraints and finances are considered.                                           

Goal-Directed Therapy                                                          

  • All therapy is one-to-one.
  • Treatment starts at a level allowing immediate success.
  • The developmental sequence of typical skill acquisition is followed.                                     
  • Therapists use proven techniques, not "high tech" fads.
  • Activities are constantly modified to be challenging, but successful.
  • Progress is expected at each session.  


  • Our team members listen to the children and communicate with them on their level.
  • Information is shared with the physician and other professionals through diagnostic and progress reports, telephone contacts, and conferences.
  • Parents always decide what information is released and to whom.
  • Regular contacts are made with the school to coordinate the therapy program with classroom curriculum.
