Our Toddler Developmental Group is designed for children who would benefit from a center based program between the ages of 1-3 years. Your child will receive his/her individual therapies during this half-day session. Our unique trans-disciplinary model is designed to meet the educational, speech and language, behavioral and motor needs of a developing child, as well as provide an opportunity for facilitated socialization.
This 2 1/2 hour program is staffed by a team of therapists including a special educator, speech and language pathologist, occupational therapist and two teaching assistants. In addition to the classroom staff, each classroom is serviced by an applied behavioral anaylisis (ABA) therapy professional and physical therapist. Parents and caregivers are offered the opportunity to attend monthly support groups and collaborative team meetings.
