Human relationships are the building blocks of healthy development.
— National Research Council, 2000, p. 4
All learning takes place in the context of relationships and is critically affected by the quality of those relationships.
— Norman-Murch, 1996
While we as Speech and Occupational Therapists base our approaches on a variety of frameworks from our individual disciplines, we all take a strong developmental-relationship based approach as we evaluate, plan interventions, and support our children and families. We believe that all children move through developmental milestones within their primary relationships that help them learn social communication, emotional regulation, and experience sharing. We provide services that match the child’s developmental readiness and focus on ensuring solid foundational development for optimal functional growth. This includes how we look at each child’s motor, sensory, language, and cognitive functioning.
