At TLC Learning Center, our specialized pediatric therapists have a variety of backgrounds and areas of expertise. We take into account the unique needs and nature of our clients and their families during both assessment and treatment of a child. We provide evaluation and treatment for children up to 12 years old with a wide range of needs. Our therapies are provided in a variety of settings, including center-based, the hospital, and natural environments such as the home, daycare providers, and in the community.

Therapy can minimize the effects of disease, injury, congenital disability, developmental delay and deprivation. Our therapy provides a play-and routine-based means to learn new skills, along with home program ideas to incorporate into daily activities. Parents and caregivers are integral to the treatment process. We assist in coordinating services and funding for our clients. We work with insurance companies, individual payment plans and community agencies.
