Meet Our Teams

Working Together for Our Kids


The staff of Children's Therapy Corner form a team of pediatric family-centered rehabilitation professionals dedicated to assessing and developing an individualized, multi-discipline program that meets the unique needs of each child and family. Just as each system in the body must work with other systems for a child's overall well-being, we take the same team approach when addressing your child's therapy needs. Music therapists work in conjunction with speech therapists, who work with occupational and physical therapists, and so on, to create a comprehensive holistic approach to treatment. Goals that your child is working toward in other treatment areas, at school or at home can be further addressed and reinforced throughout each type of therapy.

The CTC staff has years of clinical experience working with children and are certified and/or licensed in their specific area of expertise. Our therapeutic approach can include any combination of therapists. First and foremost on the team is the parent or guardian. We work closely with the family, physicians, schools and all those who have an integral part in the child's daily routine. As therapists, we strive to:

  • Recognize the unique needs of children
  • Understand the implications of the developmental process
  • Value the child as part of a family unit with its own needs

Director's Corner

JanetPortraitTo ‘see’ things differently.
To take risks.
To believe when all others question and doubt.
To dream and expect the unexpected.
Do you all realize that you are heroes?

One of the greatest benefits of being at Children’s Therapy Corner is being part of your lives and having the opportunity to talk to you, the families. You encourage us to go beyond, to search for new and different answers, new methods to help your children. To think out of the box!

As therapists, we may be the ones who spent some specialized time in universities to help your children, but you are the professionals who live the daily life and know what we can only assume. It is in partnership that we gain so much more TOGETHER.

We anticipate that this partnership will enhance your child’s development. To FOCUS on a dream, PLAN the route (with detours expected), and REACH a destiny together with support and awareness of the community in which you live. It may be a challenging dream, but with a vision and determination based on a great cause: Oh, the Places We’ll Go!
