TeamHope's primary focus is on providing therapeutic Speech, Occupational, and Physical therapy services to the pediatric population with a focus on Autism/PDD, Motor Speech Disorders, Sensory Disorders, Feeding Disorders, Visual Perceptual Disorders, and a range of Literacy and Learning Disabilities.
We are an approved clinic/agency by the NJ State Board of Education and also provide Early Intervention services through the NJEIS. Depending on circumstances, therapy can be appropriate for children younger then 18 months of age. Parents are encouraged to seek out qualified, licensed, clinical therapists to make these determinations.
Our therapeutic approach is strongly influenced by developmental principles with an emphasis on the motor system driving development and the acquisition of speech/language skills. All of our therapists are highly trained in their areas of expertise.
TeamHope strives to provide their families with a level of excellence that includes superior support in navigating clinical, academic, legal, and financial issues.
We provide a play based, childly friendly environment. TeamHope has extensive experience treating pediatric, elementary, and adolescent age children. Some of our therapeutic methods include: PROMPT, Visual Perceptual Therapy, Auditory Integration Therapy, Beckman Oral Motor System, Sarah Johnson System, Sensory Integration Therapy, Lindamood Bell, & SCERTS.
