Does My Child need Occupational Language Therapy?
Our experts in the area of Occupational Therapy can determine if therapy is warranted, and if so develop a plan of care that meets your child’s needs. At TPI, your child’s therapy program will begin with a thorough evaluation. This initial evaluation consists of a discussion about their individualized goals for the therapy program. Your child’s Occupational therapist will then design a plan to achieve goals and facilitate their most optimal potential.
