Our Services

We understand that every child is different and has unique needs. That’s why we create personalized therapy plans that are tailored to the individual needs of each child so they can reach their fullest potential.

As a parent, it can be heartbreaking to watch your child struggle with impulsive behavior and excessive energy.

Your child may be labeled as a “troublemaker” because of their actions, but you know deep down that they are kind and good-hearted. You want your child to feel confident and in control, but you’re not sure where to turn for help.

Our therapists create individualized programs that help your child manage their impulses and build self-awareness. Our sensory integration therapy and neuroplasticity principles will teach your child how to manage their body effectively, build a personalized bank of movement activities, and develop cognitive strategies for improved self-awareness and impulse control. Plus, we involve parents in the therapy process and provide support and strategies to use at home.

It’s heartbreaking to watch your child struggle to manage emotions. We can help.

Are you tired of the drama in your household caused by your child’s sensitivity to clothing, sounds, and crowds?

As a parent, it can be difficult to see your child struggle with everyday experiences that most people take for granted. Maybe your child refuses to wear certain clothing because it doesn’t feel good, or they become overwhelmed and frightened by unexpected sounds or crowded places

We offer an individualized solution designed to help your sensitive child build tolerance to a variety of textures, noises, and crowds. Using a combination of neurological tune-up, desensitization, and cognitive strategies, we work with your child to gradually increase their exposure to different sensory experiences, allowing them to build confidence and resilience. We also know that parents play a crucial role in their child’s success, which is why we educate parents on these techniques to enhance carryover at home.

Is your child resistant to participating in group sports or appears more clumsy than their peers?

Perhaps your child struggles with full-body coordination, has difficulty learning new movement games, or becomes upset when there is a change in routine. As a parent, you worry about your child’s physical development and socialization skills.

We help your child develop a better sense of their body, enhance balance and coordination, and explore different types of movement experiences in a safe and therapeutic setting. Our therapists work closely with your family to design personalized treatment plans that gradually encourage your child to practice new skills in a natural setting. By building trust and creating a positive environment, we help your child feel confident and successful with a variety of movement experiences in many settings.

EVALUATIONS

The evaluation paints a detailed picture of a child’s unique abilities and areas of growth. During the evaluation, KidLink Therapy clinicians seek to identify the “why” behind the child’s behaviors and struggles. Based on this information, we create a customized plan of care that is tailored specifically to enhance your child’s skills.

TREATMENTS

In clinic and telehealth treatment sessions are playful in nature and based on your child’s individual profile, goals and age.

COACHING

A KidLink Therapist gives advice, recommendations and support to caregivers, academic teams, or other clinicians on how to help a child be successful at home or school.

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING

My 4 year-old autistic son has been working with Mila at KidLink for about 6 months, and it has been beneficial to him and to us in so many ways. Mila has shown tremendous insight when working with him since the beginning. She really *sees* him, and is able to tailor each session with him according to where he is on a given day, since his state and level of engagement can vary. She has been a tremendous help to our family when it comes to understanding what underlies our son’s challenges and why he responds (or doesn’t) at various times and in different circumstances. She has helped us appreciate that his neurology and sensory processing system are unique to him, and has given us specific ways to work with him and support his growth and development. She really gets him, and he feels that. He is so happy to go see her each time they have a session, often walking into her waiting room yelling, “MILA! MILA!” Mila understands our son in a way that few have, meets him where he is and challenges him appropriately, and celebrates his growth which allows us to do the same! We are so grateful.

KidLink Therapy had a great ability to connect with our son, they saw immediately the areas my son needed help and found the right approach to push him, to make him feel comfortable with them. They helped him to gain a lot of skills, he wouldn’t have done by himself. He loved seeing them once a week and I was always encouraged by their new activities with him and with their help, I was able to help my son as well.

KidLink has helped my eight year old feel triumphant. You are such talented OTs (and probably the best kept secret around). Mila really got to know my son and connected with him. Because of the connection she built with him, she was always able to challenge him and push him. He felt so supported and always walked away feeling proud. What a gift you have. Thank you so much!

I’m so grateful to have found you. I think for me the most helpful were post-session discussions. I really appreciated the phone calls too when I couldn’t be there! I love your approach to kids and love that coming to KidLink was always something my child looked forward to.

Our family can’t say enough good things about KidLink therapy. KidLink’s dedication to personalized therapy for each individual child is unique as is their involving the family in a child’s therapy plan to accelerate and maintain progress. The providers are all top-notch, taking the time to really get to know each child’s strengths and weaknesses beyond a diagnosis and tailoring therapy to provide the highest degree of efficacy combined with a kind, nurturing, playful approach. Our son never felt like it was “work” to go to KidLink-and that made all the difference!

Thank you to Kimberly for being so patient and kind these past many months with my child. You are so appreciated!

I want to take this opportunity to thank you, on behalf of the myself and the team, for your valuable contributions at our meeting today. I heard from multiple staff members that your report was an accurate reflection of the student and your presentation at the meeting was knowledgeable, articulate, and informative to the team.  Personally, I want to thank you for your flexibility in working this case into your schedule. It has been a pleasure working with you and I hope we might continue a partnership in the future.

KidLink has designed a new program for kids, called body regulation, which was absolutely amazing for my son. The body regulation sessions, even over video meetings were very helpful and effective. I have noticed how my son has significant changes in ability to recognize his outburst of excitement and frustrations and is now much better at being able to voice and reflect on them. I think it was a breakthrough for him personally, being able to understand the feelings he had. The sessions provided him with the tools that helped him handle various emotions and gave him certain comfort by being able to gain control over emotions. On top of that, he really enjoyed this program and the therapist and I could see how each week he was more and more excited to join in and participate. I am very glad I had my son in this program!

I came to KidLink with a set of concerns & questions regarding my child. From the intake to final session, I found that they “got” my child and her unique profile. Weekly exercises were targeted, clear, easy, fun and helpful. The quick conversation after sessions allowed time to check in and ask questions as well as reflect on any new issues or progress. My child always looked forward to coming and wants to come back!!

When I first contacted KidLink, I had no idea what was going on with our daughter, and was overwhelmed, confused and more than a little stressed. Mila explained very clearly what was going on and how we could make it better. Our daughter, normally very shy, took to Mila instantly, and began making impressive progress. Six months later, we had a totally different kid. We are so grateful that we were able to benefit from the expertise of these talented therapists.
