The Learning Through Play philosophy is that all children learn best through play. Our therapy approach involves assessing a child’s areas of challenge — whether cognitive, social, sensory, motor or language-related — and providing them with tools to overcome these challenges through play-based interventions.
Our therapists are multidisciplinary and are trained in therapeutic and educational models including DIR/Floor-Time, ABA, Interactive Metronome, Therapeutic Listening Program, augmentative communication devices, and PECS.
Our son initiated speech therapy with EB Pediatric Resources when he was 18 months. Through his 4th birthday he has done occupational therapy, speech therapy through a classroom setting and even a little physical therapy to work on his core strength. All of his therapists have grown so close to my son and our family. He doesn’t consider going to his sessions as therapy but a fun play session. He always looks forward to creating art and imaginative and active play with one of his best friends. We have seen so much growth with our son. The level of commitment and care and even reassurance and education we’ve been given as a family is invaluable.
We are very pleased with EB Pediatric Resources [Learning through Play Center.] Their staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and caring. Our child has been attending since he was in EI, and we still do 1x/week for him to get more hands-on in a smaller group and socialize. Our child is on the spectrum of autism and things can get very overwhelming. We have gotten nothing but help from their facility with up-to-date services, even though my child aged out of EI. They go beyond their means to help parents and their children, even offer services one-on-one. We will always be grateful and thankful we were introduced to EBPR. I’ve seen a lot of children benefit. Thank you.
The structured playgroups at Learning through Play Center for Child Development were perfect for my son. I felt a regular preschool would have been too overwhelming, so the structured playgroups were a great “pre-preschool” for him. I feel it is even more important at this stage to help children learn to separate from the parent to the teacher, follow instruction, transition from one activity to the next, and get along with peers.
My child was diagnosed with autism last year. When he started receiving therapy and going to the preschool classes at the Learning through Play Center, he wasn’t talking and couldn’t sit still. I saw such gains in his development after six months in the program – he was having fun, finally, with other children and he seemed able to participate in the singing circle and art time.
(Part 1/2) [We have been] THRILLED…with every single EB therapist we have had the pleasure of working with. We first started…when my son was doing Early Intervention. [The therapist] made such a difference in our son’s life, really the entire family’s lives. When our son was approved for speech therapy we knew that without question we wanted to work with EB again…and then it was recommended that our older (4.5 years) daughter build upon her speech therapy from school. I don’t even know where we would be without [the therapist]. Both of our kids went from barely speaking to making such gains!
(Part 2/2) This past winter our son broke his femur and we knew he would need physical therapy once his cast came off. Again we knew to call to request one of your great therapists and we have been thrilled…[The therapist] is so amazingly patient and understanding with our son and she always makes her visits the highlight of our day!
We couldn’t be anymore happy with our experience with all of your therapists. They have all had such a great impact on our family!
