The initial evaluation is always completed in our office.  Therapy sessions can be scheduled in home depending on scheduling and our therapists availability.

How long are therapy sessions?

 

We have found that a 45 minute therapy session is an optimum time to reach the child's goals. Anything less than 45 minutes deprives the child from attaining maximum benefits.
