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.

Standardized Assessments we use:
  • Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT)
  • Brunicks Osertsky Test of Motor Proficiency (B & O)
  • Miller Assessment for Preschoolers (MAP)
  • DVPT
  • MVPT
  • Beery Test of Visual Motor Integration (VMI)
  • Peabody
  • Toddler Infant Motor Evaluation (TIME)
  • School Function Assessment (SFA)
  • Etch
  • Sensory Profile
What does therapy involve?

 



Our trained staff utilizes the most current techniques with state of the art equipment in our 2000 square feet of treatment space. Since children learn, grow and change through play, that is what treatment looks like. More importantly, that's what children feel they are doing.

 

What kind of pproblems are addressed?

 



Combining an in-depth understanding of typical development, traditional therapy techniques and cutting edge treatment strategies each child's unique challenges can be met. Therapy can:

 

  • Facilitate dressing, eating and independence in hygiene
