A Unique Multidisciplinary Therapy Center for Children
We are so glad you are visiting us and we hope we can help you as you look for support for yourself and your child. As you browse through our website, I hope you will get a feel for the Center, conveniently located in Englewood, Bergen County, and find answers to some of your questions. You will find that our Center is a unique place and a unique group – a Team all under one roof, sharing our expertise and working together to help our kids.
We developed this model based on the training I received as an occupational therapist over 25 years ago. When my Center included only OTs, we knew that the children we were seeing frequently had more than one issue. We were seeing kids with sensory issues that spilled over into their behavior, language issues that were related to motor planning, emotional issues that were related to physical issues. Its all intertwined. The brain is a whole entity and we knew that changes in one area would produce changes in another area. Realizing this, we started the FOCUS Center in 2004 and invited a psychotherapist, physical therapist and speech therapist to join our Team! As a result, we were able to easily discuss a childs progress, meet with parents and teachers, cross train staff, hold professional in-services and really work with the whole child!
I hope that your experience at the FOCUS Center will be as energizing and rewarding as our evolution has been. Your child is our first priority. We are here for you and will do everything we can to help you on this journey. As a staff, we know personally the challenges of raising a child with “special needs”. Our commitment to you is to help you get the best for your child and your family. Please let us know how we can help. My staff and I look forward to meeting you soon.
With Warmest Regards,
Owner and Founder, FOCUS Center
