Play is the way a child interacts with the world and how they learn as they grow. By helping a child explore different experiences, be curious, and experiment, their self-esteem grows and they can focus on their abilities while continuously increasing their skills through incremental steps. Therapy allows a child to learn how to master activities correctly from the beginning before habits are formed.

Kim uses a child-centered based approach by closely examining daily life skills, socialization and communication areas to create independence and encourage curiosity. Therapy looks and feels like play. Kim’s focus, while incorporating cognitive goals, is to build self-esteem and develop well-rounded skills in the child. Therapy can either take place at the child’s home, in an office or in their school. Each activity incorporates all the developmental domains, such as: cognitive, fine motor, gross motor, speech, social-emotional, and self-help skills. Each child is unique in their own special way and therapy helps them to blossom.

Therapy helps bridge the gap to reach a child’s full potential; allowing their true spirit to fully shine
