While some children require support for a few weeks, others may need a lifetime of support.
Whatever the case, the St. Louis Arc is committed to helping for as long as there is a need.
Early Childhood Intervention Therapy
Child development happens in sequential patterns for the majority of children. If a child misses a step, it can weaken the foundation for development of higher level skills. Early intervention therapy helps a child develop higher skills sets for future learning and growth in a child’s life.
In Your Home or In Our Centers
Providing services in a variety of settings helps a child learn and makes it easier on families to implement therapy into their already busy lives. In addition to our center-based therapy, our therapists travel to meet families in their homes or other natural environments in the community. Natural environments may include your child’s daycare, favorite restaurant, or a grandparent’s home – wherever your child feels comfortable spending time.
