PTP therapists understand that all children and families are different and have unique needs. Our therapists are respectful and compassionate. They utilize a home-based coaching approach where there is a big focus on teaching parents and caregivers skills and activities that can be carried over throughout the week during daily routines to help their children. PTP therapists recognize that parents and caregivers know their children better than anyone and are dedicated to making parents and caregivers an integral part of treatment sessions.
