how we can help

we design a custom treatment plan.

We provide therapy for children from infancy through adolescence with a variety of challenges. Regardless of diagnosis, our goal is to support your child’s ability to thrive in every environment in which they participate by fostering their gross and fine motor skills, play skills, self-care, sensory processing, self-regulation, social skills, attention and behavior.  

Our interventions are designed to engage your children’s strengths and engage their bodies and minds to develop the skills they need to become more independent. We partner with you to develop strategies to help you navigate the most difficult times of the day at home and recommend accommodations to enable your child to succeed in school.

  • Down’s syndrome
  • Handwriting deficits
  • Articulation disorders
  • Oral motor difficulties
  • Oral Apraxia
  • Feeding disorders
  • Autism Spectrum disorders
  • Sensory Integration difficulties

sensory integration

Sensory integration refers to the neurological process of analyzing, organizing and interpreting sensory information, and subsequently, planning and executing a response. We discover and experience the world around us through a constant flow of information from our senses.

gross motor coordination

Gross motor skills are important whether you are riding a bicycle, playing soccer or climbing a rock wall. The coordination of our body’s major muscle groups requires an intricate neurological dance involving sensory discrimination, motor planning, balance, strength and endurance.

fine motor skills & handwriting

Fine motor coordination involves precise, controlled hand movements to perform tasks such as cutting and pasting, coloring within the lines, and writing. Children experiencing difficulty with these types of tasks can increase skill levels with individualized treatment.

visual motor coordination & perceptual skill

Visual motor control is the ability to coordinate visual information with motor output, and visual perception is the ability to recognize, recall, discriminate and make sense of what we see. Both are underlying components of catching a ball, forming letters properly between lines, reading and cutting on lines

activities of daily living

Brushing our teeth, tying our shoes, and buttoning a shirt are commonplace daily activities for most of us. However, not everyone finds these tasks to be simple. At Giant Leaps, we have successfully worked with many children who have difficulty learning these skills.

social skills training

Many children with learning or motor delays also have trouble developing the social sensitivity necessary to form and sustain relationships with peers.

At times and where possible, Giant Leaps will schedule your child in a dyad or triad group in order to help facilitate social skills in real time. Games and activities are picked specifically to emulate situations that might be found at school or home – except a Giant Leaps therapist is present to guide their use of social skill and provide structured feedback. 

executive functioning

Executive functioning refers to the cognitive skills used to execute a task. These are the skills that help us to plan, organize, make decisions, shift between situations or thoughts, control our emotions and impulsivity, and learn from past mistakes. Deficiencies in the visual processing system can interfere with a child’s executive functioning and their ability to make progress.

visual motor coordination

Challenges in the visual processing system can interfere with a child’s executive functioning and their ability to make progress.


Interoception, commonly referred to as a “hidden sense,” is the sense that provides us with an insight into what is happening inside of our bodies, allowing us to meet primary bodily needs like hunger, thirst, and warmth. A well-functioning interoceptive system communicates what is needed for physical and emotional regulation.

challenging behavior

Challenging behavior can impact home routines, relationships with siblings, and turn every day parenting moments, into what feels like a constant power struggle. By learning to identify emotions on self and others, teaching strategies and coping skills, and then providing opportunities to practice, Giant Leaps can help!
