PRIVATE THERAPY SERVICES FOR CHILDREN
Private therapy for children and/or evaluations can be provided in your home or in our state of the art therapy clinic. Every child and family presents a unique set of needs and circumstances. We make every attempt to accommodate a family’s busy schedule and their preferred location for service.
Private therapy at Westchester Therapy Solutions Sensory Gym
Our state of the art therapy clinic has oodles of therapeutic equipment including a pirate ship, climbing wall, toddler zone, sensory exploration room, school age play space, and speech clinic that children find highly motivating. Therapy in our clinic takes the child outside of their usual routine and as a result, many children engage in greater challenges.
Our primary goal is to work in partnership with you, the parent. A parent knows their child best and your priorities in treatment planning are of the utmost importance. An explanation of progress and better understanding of a child’s strengths and difficulties is provided at the end of each session.
A prescription is required from your child’s doctor prior to beginning occupational therapy and physical therapy services. Private speech/language therapy for children does not require a prescription as indicated by the NYS Department of Education (See the FAQs about Private Therapy).
At Home Therapy Services
Parents find therapy services in their home to be highly convenient as many activities compete for your limited time. Home can provide insight into the child’s daily functioning that cannot easily be gotten in any other way. Outpatient therapy services at home can also assist the family in identifying real life scenarios that can make each day a little easier for all involved. At home, equipment, home programs and daily routines can be identified and utilized. Suggestions can be provided that actually fit into the space and life of the family.

Pediatric Therapy Treatment
Some parents choose to get started with therapy rather than have a comprehensive evaluation or screening first. We give parents this option as some children have already had evaluations or understand the needs of their child. Parents also choose this option if they are anxious to get started while working through the process to qualify with their school district or early intervention. If this is the case, your child’s skills can be assessed during their first few treatment sessions.
