Individual Sessions


Individual sessions are a great opportunity to focus on specific skills. These are also a great way to facilitate carryover of skills that are being addressed in school. 

Sessions are individualized and can take place at home, daycare/school or within the community. Frequency and duration are based upon the needs and goals of the individual. A typical session can range from 30 minutes to 1 hour on a weekly basis. Virtual sessions are available upon request (limited to NJ). 

You can discover more about a person in an hour of play, than in a year of conversation. - Plato

Group sessions


What is more motivating to kids than working with their peers on common goals? Groups sessions are a fantastic way for friends or siblings to work on common goals together. 

Since sessions are customizable to take place in the child's most natural environment, siblings might want to join in on the fun too! This can be a great way to motivate each other. Or if your child and their friends are all looking to learn a similar skill, groups can be a great way to address it. Be on the lookout for announcements of community groups run throughout the year. 

Group sessions (including but not limited to)
  • "Baby and Me": For parents and newborns looking to engage in meaningful movements and activities with their baby.

  • "That's Write": A handwriting group for students looking to improve their handwriting mechanics and overall legibility. 

  • "Live and Learn": A self-care group for children to build independence. Whether it is shoe tying, getting dressed, managing utensils, you name it!

  • "Let's Ride": A bike riding class to teach children of all ages and abilities how to ride a two-wheel bicycle! Ditch those training wheels and build confidence and healthy habits. 

  • Community engagement (soccer, baseball, basketball, tennis, etc.)
