We believe that by providing therapy in natural environments such as your home, school, and in the community, it leads to better generalization of skills. Services in clinics are not representative of the child’s daily life. After all, life doesn’t take place in a clinic. Therapy in natural environments uses your toys, materials and respects your family’s routines.

Sign language can open up communication well before your baby or toddler is ready to shower you with words. We offer sign language classes for hearing babies and toddlers. http://bit.ly/2OvFF6x

There are few things more rewarding than when we see our smallest clients cuddle up with their caregivers with excitement for learning and growing. #NationalCuddleUpDay

"I see the whole family as part of the team. Every relationship and every interaction is an opportunity for children to demonstrate their therapeutic achievements. My role is to help them to be the best version of themselves."

Intervention is likely to be more effective and less costly when it is provided earlier in life rather than later. So how long should you wait and see? https://littlehandspediatrictherapy.com/how-long-should-i-wait-see/

OT and Speech Skills on Summer Trips | Little Hands Pediatric Therapy

The holidays are fast approaching along with busy travel seasons. Get creative in the car to keep the kiddos busy. Our summer car travel tips are cold-weather proof! http://bit.ly/2IBCR3Y

littlehandspediatrictherapy.com Have a long car trip planned this Summer? This is a great opportunity to strengthen Speech and OT skills. A little planning will go a long way.

Amanda DeAngelis, a Speech-Language Pathologist with Little Hands, says: “Using something simple, like blocks, in conjunction with clear instructions (put on, put up) and social language (my turn, your turn) can be fun and effective in overcoming speech delays. I love playing games with kids, but most importantly I love giving them a voice!" https://littlehandspediatrictherapy.com/our-team/

When your child learns something new in a comfortable environment, they have what they need to keep practicing long after therapy ends. That’s why we come to you!
