VILLAGE THERAPY SERVICES

Not Taking Clients at This Time

Group Options are Up and Running click HERE for details!! 

We provide therapy services for children in the comfort and convenience of their natural environments where they spend majority of their time such as home, school, or daycare. Working with children in their natural environment allows the village therapists to tackle the challenges more efficiently since they are able to observe the skill or behavior in the child's natural environment. Home services are also preferred when a child has medical complexities or they are an infant, home services reduce exposure to infections. We work around families schedules, call us today to make your initial appointment!
