Aspire Children’s Services provides family-centered early intervention and specialized services for children with developmental delays or disabilities, and their families.
We assist children with special needs in reaching their unique potential. Such
needs include autism spectrum disorders, apraxia, cerebral palsy, chromosomal abnormalities and disorders, Down syndrome, feeding disorders, motor coordination disorders, physical disabilities, sensory integration issues and speech and language disorders.
Through our family-centered services, we help each family understand their child’s strengths and needs. Our team of pediatric therapists and specialized staff work with the family to set meaningful goals for the child and then provide the services that are tailored to each child, helping them to achieve those goals.
When parents enroll their child in Aspire Children’s Services, they also gain access to a variety of family support resources. By partnering with families, we help to build a foundation for the future for each child we serve.
