Our Core Therapies

Our Heart & Soul
pediatric speech therapy

Speech-language pathologists evaluate, diagnose and treat patients with speech, language, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders among children experiencing a range of issues that impact speech production, language comprehension and expression.

sensory integration occupational therapy

Our Occupational Therapists focus on achieving independence in all areas and environments of our patients’ daily lives. Our treatments focus on areas your child’s self-care, sensory integration, fine motor skills, self-help skills, handwriting, and of course, playtime!

pediatric physical therapy

Project Play Therapy utilizes an array of evidence-based techniques to treat musculoskeletal problems and improve mobility of children facing a number of health conditions. A physical therapist uses physical examinations to diagnose the source of the patient’s movement difficulties.

pediatric feeding therapy

We treat children with sensory, motor and behavioral feeding difficulties who may struggle eating, progressing to table foods or have trouble gain weight. Our therapy addresses hypersensitivity to textures, tastes and temperatures, chewing foods and safely swallowing food and liquids.

Advanced Training

Project Play strives to empower therapists with diverse training and focus areas to complement our core therapies in order to deliver transcendent services to more children in need. Using activity-based and sensory-driven experiences, our therapists analyze individual sensory profiles and praxis to promote appropriate adaptive responses, manage behavior and encourage social interactions.

Specialty Services

Psychological Services

We offer comprehensive psycho-educational evaluations in both clinic and school settings. Our licensed school psychologists and educational consultants provide collaborative, informative, and practical therapy to families and schools.

Academic Tutoring

Our tutors coach and develop children in grades pre-school through middle school in all academic areas, including organization and timeliness. Testing is available, but an assessment is not a prerequisite to participate in our tutoring program.

Social Groups

We offer a variety of peer groups to help children, ages preschool through middle school, develop social relationships and work on skills such as social greetings, identifying levels of body activity, play, dealing with bullying/teasing, expressing emotions and how to self-regulate their responses to others and their environment. These groups are often led by an OT or SLP.

Music Therapy

From birth, music can have a profound effect on the growth and development of children. Hence, our music therapists use live music interventions to help children reach their physiological, emotional, cognitive and social goals, often including soothing, promoting learning and offering a sense of security.

Art Therapy

Our therapists use the creative process of art to enhance the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of children. Children often use the art process, through creative representation and symbolism, to express and release feelings of stress and anxiety.

Specialty Programs & Summer Programs

We are constantly gauging interest in developing camps involving all the services listed on this page, often in different settings such as in the great outdoors!

Handwriting Therapy

Often using the renowned Handwriting Without Tears program, therapists teach capital and lowercase letter and number formation. Children learn to print through hands-on materials and developmentally appropriate activities. Fine motor work prepares students for pencil and paper success.

Interactive Metronome

Our specially trained and licensed therapists apply the research based intervention program that has proven to benefit children with a range of neuro-rehabilitative and developmental learning disabilities. The program is designed to strengthen processing to improve attention, language processing, sequencing, motor planning, fundamental cognitive abilities and impulse control.

Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.
