The KidsFirst Difference

The KidsFirst School program is a therapy based program, conducted in a school setting. The program runs daily, for three to six hour sessions, during which the child receives speech and occupational therapy.

We simulate the school environment as closely as possible, helping children learn the skills required for mainstream settings. Each child has an individualized growth and education plan, depending on their needs and the family’s priorities.

All Therapy Under One Roof

Speech and Occupational Therapy is seamlessly integrated into each child’s curriculum. The team consistently works on behavior management and educational goals for all our children.

Individualized Curriculum

Each child is unique and has clear strengths and needs. Our team assesses each child to create their individualized education program. With our small therapist to child ratio, we are able to ensure that the IEP goals are constantly and consistently worked upon daily, by all team members.

Empowering Parents

Parents know their children the best. We work closely with the parents to ensure that the goals for the child match the family’s priorities. Our team members are available daily, at drop off and dismissal, to address any concerns that the parents may have, such as a sudden change in behavior, new emerging skills, strategies for helping the child at home and others. Parents receive a weekly update about their child.

The KidsFirst Team

Our team is undoubtedly one of our biggest strengths. Our team members are dedicated, highly experienced therapists and specialists: all of them have ten to fifteen years of extensive experience working with young children. They are passionate about their work and are driven by their ability to make lasting, positive contributions to the children’s lives and their families.
