What is Developmental Therapy?

Developmental Therapy supports a child’s ability to learn and interact with others in their home and community. Our therapists assess, create, and implement goals to identify a child’s strengths to support areas that challenge them. These areas of development include social-emotional, cognitive, language and communication, fine and gross motor skills, and self-help skills.

How a Developmental Therapist can support your family:

  • Play Skills
  • Sensory Integration
  • Socialization Skills
  • Relationship Building
  • Developmental Delays
  • Assists families to support their child during daily routines

Common Q&A

Developmental therapists work with children between the ages of birth to 5 years old. Developmental therapists focus on supporting children’s play to build their communication, motor, cognitive, and social-emotional skills.

As developmental therapists, we want our clients to have fun and learn! It may look like we are “just playing” but don’t be fooled! These children are hard at work learning to solve problems, use flexible thinking and manage their strong feelings within the hour. Our therapists partner with our parents and school districts to support their individual and unique goals. We believe in listening to our families and supporting our families as they support their children. Our goal is to make learning fun and easy for the entire family!

We believe that children learn through play! During play, children are exploring the world around them., building relationships with others, strengthening their physical abilities, and constructing goals/ideas.
