My Story

My Blue Bird Day

After working in outpatient pediatrics for seven years seeing kids only once a week for treatment sessions, I was ready for a more intensive setting where I could make an even bigger impact on my clients’ lives. That’s what I love about working at Blue Bird Day—our kids are given so much therapeutic support throughout their school day in order to make the most progress and gains! 

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
