KSPS is dedicated to meeting the individual needs of our clients and their families. We are committed to providing flexible scheduling options. Speech-language pathologists review progress and provide training to families on a weekly basis. Consultations with teachers, physicians, and other professionals are scheduled to coordinate services. Our staff will obtain referrals, prescriptions, and reports as needed from the appropriate source.
KSPS now offers pediatric occupational therapy services. We provide evaluations and create treatment plans to benefit children who have motor delays and differences in sensory processing. Our goal is to enhance development, minimize the potential for developmental delays, provide functional skills training, and help families meet their child’s special needs. Individual sessions and home-based programs are available, as well as co-treatment sessions with a speech-language pathologist.
