Child’s Play Plus

Elevating the standards of clinical care has been a passion of ours since our founding. We wanted a place where patients of all ages and need, along with their families could come to seek exceptional outcomes, all while adding to the meaning of what a special needs clinic should be. In its beginning years, the services started with a small group of therapists, offering intervention in a few small locations, and for a brief time, in the community only. But thanks to their dedication to their science, passion for their mission, focus on convenient on-site amenities and generalization experiences, and an ever-increasing number of passionate caregivers, Child’s Play Plus has grown beyond our wildest imagination. And we are just getting started.

When you arrive at Child’s Play today, you’ll find the finest clinical staff and their support teams intervening on everything from early learning, problem behavior reduction and replacement (including severe aggression and self-harm) and family education; not to mention social programs, occupational therapy, speech therapy, diagnostics, and family support counseling. From our dream of a clinical experience beyond the norm it’s blossomed into, Child’s Play Plus continues to inspire our commitment to clinical excellence, growth, and community support.

    Occupational therapists work from the inside out to address the difficulties children may face. Learning about emotions and being able to understand how they change in different situations is a valuable skill for kids. OT helps develop self-awareness and social skills (among many others) that help the body and mind work together!

  • Speech Therapy

    Some children have difficulties organizing the sounds we make when talking. “Gliding” is a common speech pattern that typically disappears by age 5. This is when “l” and “r” sounds are substituted for “w” and “y” sounds. Speech therapy helps correct this phonological process, and much more!

  • Play based Occupational Therapy

    Play based Occupational Therapy

    Saturday, February 6, 2021

    Feed the frog! Just one of the many games we utilize during Occupational Therapy to work on things like bilateral coordination (using both sides of the body together). Children who appear clumsy, drop things often or primarily use one hand in activities may need help with their bilateral coordination. Questions? Allow our team of professionals to guide you to the next step: https://childsplayplus.com/contact/

My confidence in their ability to help my patients has yet to wane. Child’s Play is an amazing resource to our community.
