Aquatic Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

1 hour per session

Cognitive-behavior therapy (CBT) helps improve a child’s moods, anxiety and behavior by examining confused or distorted patterns of thinking. CBT therapists teach children that thoughts cause feelings and moods which can influence behavior. During CBT, a child learns to identify harmful thought patterns. The therapist then helps the child replace this thinking with thoughts that result in more appropriate feelings and behaviors.

Time varies

During a screening, therapists will take a broad look at your child's motor skills, general milestone mastery, emotional, sensory, and psychosocial responses to determine their need for further assessment.
