We are a speech pathologist and an occupational therapist who have worked together to develop a program to address the needs of children having difficulties navigating the on-the-move modern classroom. Our experience and background complement and enhance the work we do with children and have taught us innovative ways to curate a specific program suited to a child's needs. We are currently working remotely, having years of practice of remote work with children who were unable to come to our clinic pre-pandemic.

Who We Are
As practitioners with many years experience in our respective fields, we have seen the value of tandem intervention services. Working together to help children who have difficulty navigating the on-the-move modern classroom, we develop individualized learning programs tailored to each child’s needs. By combining movement and sensory integration therapies with those designed to improve language skills, marked progress occurs in children whose productivity previously had been stalled.
In this type of tandem approach, multiple sensory systems are stimulated simultaneously. These systems play key foundational roles in motor planning, language, and learning, as well as auditory and visual processing. They also contribute significantly to cognitive and emotional development.
In joining our distinct areas of expertise, we integrate different interpretations of behavior. Our resulting therapies complement each other, creating a unique program for each child with whom we work.
Note: Individual, one-on-one sessions with a therapist are also available. The decision to combine therapies is made individually and depends on your child's age, needs, and sensory processing abilities as well as other clinical issues.
