Specialized Therapy Services is a premier, full service clinic that provides comprehensive pediatric therapies with an integrative approach.

Speech Language Pathology

At STS, we differentiate ourselves from other providers by applying a combination of approaches that are integrated to meet the unique needs of each child. We believe that there is no one "right method" for treatment. Rather, we connect the various cognitive processes (sensory, vestibular, attention, and language) to ensure positive growth and lasting change.

Occupational Therapy

Our OT practitioners work with clients to promote health, development, and functional independence. Intervention plans are created to address the unique sensory, vestibular, and disability needs of children, young adults, and their families. Services are implemented in a fun, creative, and integrative manner.

Physical Therapy

Our Physical Therapists use a variety of treatments to help clients build strength, improve movement, increase range of motion, decrease pain, and acquire skills needed to complete daily activities.

Developmental activities (crawling and walking), balance and coordination, adaptive play, aquatic therapy, strength training, flexibility exercises, injury avoidance, and safety instruction are just some of the services offered.

Behavioral Therapy

The STS Behavior Specialists offer evaluations and provide evidenced based intervention services (Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the LOVAAS method, and Discrete Trial Training) to individuals with developmental disabilities.

Social Skills Group Therapy

Social Skills Groups at STS are offered to encourage and reinforce pragmatic skills in children and adolescents with similar skill levels and interests. Our group leaders teach flexible thinking, perspective taking, problem solving, conversation skills, reading, and responding to body language/ facial cues in the clinic and community settings.

Assistive Technology

At STS, our AT specialists are trained to use a variety of tools (hardware, software, tablets, and other electronic devices and apps) to support reading, writing, expressive language, math, communication, and self care.

We provide a thorough assessment of each child's needs to determine the most effective way to address impairments in communication, learning, and independent living.  

Individual Counseling

AT STS, it is our passion to help children thrive. Individual therapy is now offered to children aged Preschool-18 years. Our clinicians have extensive knowledge and experience in treating anxiety, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, depression, Oppositional Defiance, self/harming, and school-related issues (learning disabilities, IEPs, truancy, low motivation, and behavioral issues). We teach children effective coping strategies to manage life's challenges and provide parents with the support needed to sustain change.
