Children have the opportunity to explore their milestone development through the use of natural play schemes in an enriched sensory-motor environment!

Advanced Therapy Solutions provides the highest quality of Speech Language and Occupational Therapy at our state-of-the-art, outpatient clinic located in Wethersfield CT.

Our speech therapy advisors work closely with our occupational therapists to integrate a sensory-based approach to help children with SPD build the foundations needed to develop engagement and attention on which to build and expand communication skills. We are supporting children and their families with developmental activities and the use of Occupational Therapy to provide family support and pediatric therapy.

Children receive a thorough evaluation and treatment that focuses on promoting the highest level of function. Pediatric physical therapists work in partnership with families to establish meaningful goals, and they provide interventions that are developmentally appropriate, in a child-friendly environment. Communication with the child, parents and other specialists on the team is the cornerstone of all clinical care that we employ for best in pediatric therapy.
