In addition, we treat children who are at risk for developmental and global delays, including Down syndrome, prematurity, and cerebral palsy, as well as those who fall within the autistic spectrum, or have speech and language challenges or feeding difficulties.

Our goals are threefold:

1) to create an effective communication channel between the therapist and your family

2) to help infants successfully achieve their developmental goals in a stimulating and nurturing environment

3) to help infants - and all patients - build stronger bodies and minds, which serves as a foundation for healthy physical and emotional growth
