WHY PRIVATE SERVICES?
We recognize that you as a parent want the best for your child and your desires are for your child to develope as typical as possible. You may accomplish this desire in many different ways. At times, families choose to secure additional services for their child in order to give their child a little extra encouragement and support towards developmental success. Some families also desire more family-directed services, gaining further collaboration and support from our professionals in understanding their child's special needs.
No matter the reason, we are here to support, encourage, and collaborate with you for as long as you may need. Private services are most often provided in a home or community based environment with the parent and caregiver present. Professionals offer direct support to the parent / caregiver in any of the following areas:
physical development (movement, balance /coordination);
cognitive development (thinking, learning, solving problems);
communication (talking, listening, understanding);
social/emotional (playing, feeling secure and happy); and
self-help (eating, dressing);
Sensory Processing / Sensory Regulation.

All Services are to be provided in the child’s natural environment to best support the child’s natural progression of development. Exceptions may be made if found to be developmentally appropriate, and agreed upon by the team.
DEVELOPMENTAL / THERAPY SCREENING:
Upon parent request, Each child may have a developmental and / or therapy assessment or formal screening completed, to determine the child’s current developmental levels to be used as a baseline for entering into services as well as to establish the recommended frequency of services. The Developmental Specialist and / or Therapy Specialist(s) will monitor and track the child’s progress through routine observations and bi-annual progress reports. The family will receive a formal copy of each report completed.
