We've been through a few feeding therapists and they are the best! Leah is amazing and immediately embraced my son as if he were her own. She is open to discussion and focused on current research. My son is almost 100% dependent on a g-tube for feedings, but for the first time, it feels like we could make significant progress toward oral feeding.
Mrs. Juileanne was absolutely AMAZING with my son. When she first came, he only could say a few words. With a few months of working with him, he had tremendous improvement. If it had not been for her, he would not be were he is at today with his speech. He recently graduated from speech because he had such great progress. I definitely would recommend SCSS to parents whose children need speech.
Our physical therapists are dedicated to providing customized one-on-one care that helps children with developmental, and neuromuscular conditions to restore and enhance their development and enable them to participate in desired age appropriate family, community and school-based activities. Our clinicians utilize therapies in a play-based environment that can help children increase their strength, balance, coordination and motor skills.
From 0-21 years, we provide comprehensive, individualized speech-language evaluations and treatment for children with a variety of impairments including but not limited to delayed articulation, motor speech disorders, apraxia, auditory processing disorder, autism, cognitive delays, phonemic and phonological awareness, and developmental language delays.
SCSS is seriously THE BEST place my kids have been to for speech, feeding, and OT. The front office staff is wonderful, Tammy is amazing, all of the therapists collaborate with each other and all three of my kids have seen practically every one of them at one point or another. The therapists really love their jobs, and they have practically become family over the last couple of years. Leah and Julieanne work really diligently to make sure families are getting the education and resources they need to effectively work with their child at home as well. It is sometimes difficult to find a speech therapist who can treat kids who are medically complicated, and at no point have I ever felt my kids have not been properly cared for. They have improved by leaps and bounds and I cannot say enough about them! I HIGHLY recommend them!
Our Occupational therapists specialize in working with children with a variety of developmental disorders and diagnoses. Therapy focuses on promoting independence and functional participation in day to day activities including but not limited to play, dressing, self-feeding, bathing, sleep routines, fine motor and visual motor skills, gross motor skills, handwriting, and sensory processing skills.
There are so many things I love about this place and the therapists!! They are phenomenal with my son who has severe special needs and they are so patient with him and you can tell they genuinely care for him and their other patients!! I would recommend them to anyone!
