At Joy Center, we believe that development occurs within the context of the parent-child relationship. From this point, the child develops the capacity to self-regulate, share attention, be reciprocal, explore and learn. For this reason, we encourage parents to take an active role. Your entire family benefits from a methodology that is focused on innovative developmental approaches impacting the brain integration – understanding how individual children process and respond to sensory information, and how they use their bodies to successfully interact with the environment and people.
As such, we’re able to identify the unique challenges and strengths of your child as it relates to sensory processing information received through the senses – sight, sound, taste, touch, smell, position, and movement of the body and the ability to recognize the force of gravity, head movement and balance.
Our team of therapists and psychologists builds the foundation your child needs for emotional, sensory, motor, language and cognitive development to grow socially, emotionally and intellectually – with lasting impact.
