The Crossroads team wants your child to look forward to their sessions. We keep in mind what each child enjoys and try to incorporate that into their sessions. Have a sports fan? We’ll use basketball and hockey games for the kids who really like sports and who are competitive. Have a creative dreamer? We’ll work on sounds by writing stories about unicorns and fairies! We’ll joke around, talk in funny voices, all to make speech and OT fun and make time fly by. When working with the little ones, we follow their lead and we meet their individual goals through play. We play with what they are interested in.
At Crossroads we are goal-driven and cater sessions to each individual. Each therapist makes sessions fun, engaging, and effective. We use evidence-based practice treatment approaches. At Crossroads, we recognize that communication, caregiver and parent training, and collaboration with other professions are extremely important. We value that important communication and it is part of our core values. After each treatment session carryover activities are given based on that week’s session to help children meet their goals even faster.
The Crossroads team believes in the value of collaborating with other professionals involved with your child. Teachers, neuro psychologists, psychologists, occupational therapists, dentists, etc. can all provide valuable perspectives. Collaborating and working as a team is important so that dimensions to any child do not get missed.
We are only with your child for one, or more, sessions a week, but parents and caregivers are there all days, every day. We make it a priority to communicate with caregivers and parents after each session. We provide “homework” and carryover activities after each session. This facilitates faster progress and helps everyone involved work together to support each child to the best of their abilities.
