Why should I get help for my child?
By age 5, a child’s brain grows to 85-90% of it’s full capacity. This makes the years before kindergarten a vital time to lay the foundation for later success in school, work and relationships. Some children may need a little more time and practice to learn skills like communicating, feeding, dressing, handwriting, paying attention, following directions, and socializing with peers.need a little help to develop their skills in communication and occupation.

It is our vision to see children reach their highest potentials. The 3 Plus Program is a partnership with families who’s children need occupational and/or speech therapy. We serve children age 3yrs. to kindergarten entry and will provide extra help for your child’s development.
