My son, now 7, has been seeing occupational therapists since he was 2 and while they were all helpful, Michele has been life changing! Within a few short months, he was able to swing independently, buckle his own seatbelt, etc. He is also conquering more sensory activities like helping in cleaning out his own pumpkin at Halloween, making slime, and letting a goat eat treats out of his hand!!
The facility is clean, colorful, and inviting — every aspect of the castle and treehouse rooms so thoughtfully considered. Michele, Liz, Laura, and Erica are wonderful — kind, caring, and engaging. They really understand not only the physical and educational impact, but also the social emotional impact of our son’s challenges and that has made a huge difference for him, and for us. Parents are very much a part of the team, questions are always answered, and everyone is incredibly responsive to phone calls, emails, etc.
My son has participated in individual OT sessions, group handwriting, yoga, and Superhero Flexible Thinking classes. Every therapist has been fantastic and every program beneficial. Michele believes strongly in making sure that every program benefits every child and she will be honest and proactive about addressing the situation if she feels a child is not getting what they need. She is a wonderful advocate for all of her kids!
