Celebrating the Unique ABILITIES in Everyone!
When a concern arises about your child’s development, you need a support system with proven methods and compassionate care. The Therapy & Learning Center helps individuals with various abilities celebrate and develop their unique gifts. Efforts are directed at meeting the individualized needs of our children and adults during therapy, learning, and care offering a comprehensive approach.
The Therapy and Learning Center began for us as a resource, a place to go, to help Easton gain the skills he would need to be stronger and better able to succeed in life. They pushed and guided him to be the very best that he could be and gave him the keys to obtaining his goals. His therapists turned into family to not only him but all of us.

Pediatric Therapy Services

We pride ourselves in not just being expert clinicians who diligently work to develop children’s abilities but also in being a lifeline of compassionate support to families. We offer a holistic approach for your child’s progression as our therapists collaborate with teachers, childcare providers, caregivers and others in order to maximize each child’s functional skills.
