private therapy


Private therapy sessions are taught by licensed occupational therapists. All therapists have work experience within the public school setting and are familiar with both the clinical and the educational environment. By understanding fine and visual motor development combined with an awareness of the kinesthetic, tactile, proprioceptive and attentional needs of students, the therapist can design a program to meet the individual needs of each student.
