We Can Help.

Chatty Child occupational therapists assist children and their caregivers in building skills that enable them to participate in meaningful and developmentally appropriate activities in order to develop self-help and fine motor skills. Occupational therapy sessions often look like “playing,” as we design activities for children to explore their environment and engage in new sensory experiences that challenge them in the areas where they need support. At Chatty Child we believe positive experiences help to build your child’s confidence and allow your child to reach his/her full potential through activities, knowledge and team work. Let’s work together!
