More About Wonderland Therapy
Wonderland Therapy works with you and your child, using their interests, to make each session meet their unique needs. Services may be provided in a variety of environments, including in your home, daycare, and/or in community settings.
Occupational therapy services are specialized treatment to improve a person's ability to complete their "occupations", which are the things they do every day. For children, these are things like playing, completing activities of daily living (eating, dressing, bathing, grooming), interacting with others, and learning.
Additionally, Wonderland Therapy offers inclusive enrichment programs, play groups, and education classes to the community in the La Crosse, WI and greater Coulee Region area.
As a mom and therapist, I've seen firsthand that every child is different and comes with their own unique set of needs. Sometimes, you need a team to help support those needs. Whether you are seeking education or direct intervention, I am here to help.
I can't wait to join your team!
