Our Special Needs Services program provides children with the highest quality therapy services while simplifying management and containing costs. We work with your management team to develop a program that fits your needs and budget. We partner with a variety of organizations and programs to bring therapy to at-risk and children with special needs in Michigan. We are always interested in exploring innovative partnerships that enable children with special needs to reach their greatest potential.

  • We offer services by individual therapy discipline or as a bundle to meet your requirements with no minimum hours required to initiate a contract.
  • We provide all assessment tools and therapy supplies.
  • We bill for time spent working with the child and completing required reports – nothing more.
  • We ensure all necessary credentials including Child Protective Services, finger printing, and background checks are completed.
  • To broaden the circle of support for each individual child, we offer opportunities to family members, caregivers and professionals through our educational workshops and events

Current partnerships include:

  • Public school districts Pre-K through 12
  • Charter schools Pre-K through 12
  • Private schools
  • Early childhood programs
  • Clinics
  • Non-profit organizations
