At playABILITIES, we offer individualized therapy services to children from newborn through adolescence. Our occupational, physical, and speech therapists provide evaluation, treatment, consultation, and education to help your child build functional skills and improve their quality of life. Our goal with treatment is to connect with your child to help them reach their full potential in mobility, social interaction, communication, and daily living skills.
When working with your child, our therapists use play-based activities to build functional skills, while appealing to your child’s interests. Our therapists use their expertise and creativity to connect with your child, implementing a variety of approaches to find the “just right” therapeutic fit for your child.
We believe that therapy should be fun, because children learn best when they are engaged. Our therapists are highly-trained to make the therapeutic process enjoyable for kids. We follow a child’s lead and enter their world to join in their play. We strategically present children with challenges to expand upon their actions and interactions, including sensation, emotion, and motor skills. We praise children for their creativity and build their confidence and skills through relationship-based interactions. Finally, we coach parents to engage with their child, view their child’s behavior through a different lens, and feel empowered to help their child thrive.
