At Solaris, our mission is to be a source of hope and discovery for families with children that face mental and physical challenges. Through therapeutic techniques and parent education, we help children develop the skills they need to handle day to day activities and to be comfortable in normal, social environments. We help families to understand the child’s viewpoint and how to continue the therapeutic techniques at home and school.
We offer occupational therapy, physical therapy and yoga therapy. We may recommend one or a combination of therapies, depending on your child’s needs. Our recommendations will be based on a thorough evaluation where we assess motor integration skills (both visual and fine), gross motor, balance, coordination, reflexes, sensory processing skills, communication skills and temperament.
From the child’s perspective, therapy is play. We tailor play activities to the child to support brain maturation and the development of skills required for daily life. Through play, we present the child with challenges designed to help them regulate their motor and emotional responses and increase their self-esteem and self-confidence.
Our work with a child and family is more than treating conditions or symptoms. We are offering a holistic approach to unlock each child’s individual potential.
