Occupational therapy provides significant advantages for children to ensure that they are capable of living on their own. If parents or teachers want their child to be able to accomplish tasks more independently, they should seek advice from an occupational therapist. Not only will this assist the youngster in growing, but it will also teach parents how to collaborate with their youngster at home.

Crawl Walk Jump Run Reviews



My son loves coming to therapy here! Everyone he has worked with he likes. They have worked with him on many different things, and he loves to play with them. That’s how great they are he thinks he’s coming to “play”. They make OT and Speech FUN! The office staff is amazing. My phone got locked in the lobby and someone met me here to give it back. Way above what they needed to do. Great customer service here. All around a great place! We love our Crawl Walk family.
