Customized Pediatric Therapy
   Speech therapist Rachel Weiss and her twin sister Christine Salomon, an occupational therapist, recently opened Legendary Therapy, a pediatric practice that provides individually customized programs using highly collaborative methods to help children develop their sensory processing abilities, speech and language skills, fine motor skills, and visual motor and perception skills. Legendary Therapy has expertise in helping children with ADD and ADHD succeed without the use of medication. Rachel and Christine travel to homes and schools to understand each child’s needs, and work together with parents and teachers to devise an appropriate plan. Reading programs are designed on an individual basis for children who are both delayed and need help advancing above their current reading levels. Legendary Therapy also offers language therapy and a sensory gym that uses movement to help children focus. Legendary Therapy, PLLC, 87 Main Street, New Canaan. 203-219-5879 or 917-744-3976. www.legendarytherapy.com.

Gymnastics in Downtown Westport

   With over 300 sites nationwide, The Little Gym has opened a new location in Westport. The Little Gym works with ages 4 months through 12 years old to develop motor skills in a caring, nurturing environment. The Little Gym is a USA Gymnastics-certified teaching facility with sophisticated gymnastics programs up to level 6. The hands-on programs help younger children develop listening and language skills and learn cooperation. Children are encouraged to try new things in a safe environment as they develop confidence. The Little Gym believes that children should be challenged to do their best without having to be the best. In addition to gymnastics, The Little Gym offers dance and sports programs, and now in Westport, a cheerleading program. The new facility boasts 3,800 square feet and floor-to-ceiling windows. A separate party room is available on weekends. The Little Gym, 629 Post Road East, Westport. 203-227-0599. www.tlgwestport.com.
