STEPS for Kids: In The Community

At STEPS for Kids, we know that what matters most is helping children succeed where they are: at home, at school, at daycare, or wherever they may be.  While direct therapy services in the clinic can meet the needs of many children and families, sometimes services provided right where the child is can help ensure a successful experience.

Our staff is available to help children in the community by providing consultation, direct therapy services, caregiver education and training, and professional support through collaboration with other providers.  Community based services are tailored to meet individual needs and focused on accommodations, education and training to support children in their natural environments.

 

STEPS for Kids: At Home

STEPS for Kids provides in-home therapy services and consultation to support children and their families for success through everyday activities. Services are available based on the needs of the family and the child and may include in-home assessment and intervention for structuring the environment, implementing techniques and strategies for home use, and/or carry-over of clinic based treatment as well as family and caregiver education or training.

In-home support may consist of a one-time visit or on-going services, depending on the needs of the family and child. STEPS for Kids staff are available to collaborate with other service providers or caregivers in the home, including but not limited to ABA therapists, respite care workers, tutors, and nurses or nursing aides.

Contact Us for more information about in-home services.

 

STEPS for Kids: At School

STEPS for Kids collaborates with schools (public, private and home based) to support children for success in academics and related activities.  Our staff is available for consultation and advocacy within the school setting and can also provide therapy services in the school as needed.  Professional services provided in collaboration with the school include assessment and intervention for structuring the environment, implementing techniques and strategies for school, and/or carry-over of clinic based treatment as well as family and academic staff education or training.

Services are available for children attending preschool through high school and are focused on establishing an individualized plan for supporting each child’s success in the school setting. Our staff uses a strengths based approach to support skill development and task participation while providing education and advocacy to help others understand the child’s needs.
