Acceptance. Change. Access.

At Growing Kids Therapy Center we teach individuals with motor difficulties to coordinate their brain and body to communicate by spelling.

In Our Center

We work in individual sessions to teach the motor skills necessary to spell to communicate. Once communication skills have been acquired, we offer opportunities for clients to work in groups to further develop motor, regulation and fluency with peers. Within individual and group sessions, clients are able to work on purposeful and meaningful motor activities in order to manage their bodies, become more self-controlled and independent.
