Gaining Skills Through Play!



Through expert assessment and our unique intervention strategies, which look and feel like play, children develop the skills and abilities essential for meeting the challenges of their world. At home, at school, in group activities and with friends, children become more capable. Most importantly, each child begins to feel positive about him/her self, trying new activities with a sense of confidence!

 

How do I know if my child needs therapy?



An in-depth evaluation can help determine a child's need for therapy. One of KidAbilities expert evaluators will work one-on-one with any child, birth through adolescence to determine what is causing a child's difficulty. We are also happy to plan a program based on an evaluation completed elsewhere.

  • Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT)
