Gatepath Children's Therapy Services provides therapy, child development services, and family support services for infants and young children with developmental, social, emotional, and physical differences. Our services are tailored for each child and focus on working with the parents and primary care givers. Individual classes, group sessions, and therapy sessions are held in the home or at our center, while group sessions are offered at community-based locations.
Our interdisciplinary team of early interventionists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists works closely with parents to develop hands-on approaches that can be used at home and during daily activities to continue the developmental progress of the child. Developmental classes are offered for infants and toddlers. Caregiver groups are led by our early childhood special educators for educational training and support.
