Therapy Services

As therapists, we saw too many children spending longer time in therapy because services did not begin soon enough and/or the families were not given an active role in their child's plan. Let's work together to create a better answer for your therapeutic needs-one that works for you and your child.

Playing with Rings

Occupational therapy

A child's occupation is to grow, learn, do schoolwork, and most importantly, PLAY. Occupational therapy improves challenging daily activities by addressing sensory, social, behavioral, motor, and environmental issues. We focus most on the activities that are rewarding and motivating to the child and their family.

We have experience with a wide range of ages, diagnoses, and delays including:

> tongue & lip ties

> early intervention

> genetic syndromes

> sensory integration difficulties

> sensory & oral motor feeding difficulties

> developmental and/or fine motor delays

physical therapy

Children move to learn, and as movement experts, physical therapy focuses on developing functional skills to improve mobility. This can include: balance, coordination, strength, posture, equipment & orthotic recommendations, stairs, walking, etc.  Our goal is to maximize your child's level of independence.

We have experience with a wide range of ages, diagnoses, and delays including:

 

> early intervention

> genetic syndromes

> torticollis and plagiocephaly 

> toe-walking & other gait abnormalities
> developmental and/or gross motor delays

> neurologic and/or neuromuscular disorders

Why Villages

Our family centered model means you will have an active role in all therapy sessions, goal setting, and most importantly you will be empowered as you learn to use strategies everyday that help your child progress.

The natural environment is where your child typically spends their time; where they live, learn, and play. In this environment, we are better able to assess their strengths and use tools already available to you and your family to address their challenges in a realistic and personalized plan.

Routines based interventions are developmental interventions embedded into your regular daily routines & activities such as play & caregiving. This allows for the skills & goals to become meaningful, functional, predictable, occurring numerous times a day, and specific to your child's needs. 

Your lead therapist will be the primary therapist that will see you most frequently depending on your most important and meaningful goals. Other disciplines are always available to consult & collaborate as needed and as your child progresses. This reduces the overwhelming number of appointments, allows for you to build a trusting relationship with your therapist, but also maintains a global & multi-disciplinary approach.

Build a community of support by creating relationships with your Villages therapist who is there to support you on your family's journey.

Be empowered as you learn to read your child's cues and know when and how to react, assist, or intervene.
