Children whose motor difficulties impair their ability to express themselves often face major developmental and educational obstacles. So we place special importance on helping your child communicate to the best of her abilities.

In our Neuromotor Therapy Program, we try to improve specific motor functions that will maximize your child’s ability to use the communication technologies recommended by the specialists in the Augmentative Communication Program.
