Garden State Academy's Blossom and Bloom Therapy program offers an inclusive, therapy intensive preschool program open to children ages 2-5 in need of extra support to meet goals and developmental milestones in an educational setting. (Private therapy sessions are also available for ages newborn through high school.)
Pediatric Occupational Therapy provides individualized therapeutic activities through hands on play based learning sessions. Individual treatment plans develop and strengthen skills to facilitate and enhance a child's participation in daily experiences such as play, school, self care, feeding and home and family interactions. Therapists provide guidance to caretakers to transition therapy skills to everyday activities and situations.
Pediatric Speech Therapy uses techniques to improve communication including articulation, language, and pragmatics. Therapy services will focus on increasing receptive and expressive language as well as social interaction.
