Pediatric Speech and Occupational Therapy

Bubbles Academy has partnered with Crossroads Speech & Occupational Therapy to provide goal-driven and catered sessions to each individual. Each therapist makes sessions fun, engaging, and effective, using evidence-based practice treatment approaches. Crossroads recognizes 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.
