The Staff of Helping Hands, Inc.


Proudly serving our community with therapy excellence for 20 years, we offer an eclectic approach to therapy, and we work closely with parents and families to educate them about their child's diagnosis, treatment, and therapeutic options.

Our therapists are passionate about helping families understand their child's daily challenges, therefore increasing a positive outcome for their child's treatment, and improving their child's quality of life. Our therapists believe that by providing families with knowledge and resources to become empowered, the impact of therapeutic services on their children - our clients - is greatly increased.

Our office serves our clients not only with Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy, but our therapists are also trained and certified in programs such as Therapeutic Listening, Primitive Reflex Integration, Handwriting Without Tears, the Social Thinking curriculum, Life Skills management, and many more.
