“Why won’t my child jump in a bounce house at a party? How can I help him learn to pedal a tricycle? Why can’t he sit at the table next to their friends?”
“The sights and sounds are too much for him. They have a meltdown, are afraid, and flap their hands in frustration.”
Motor Lab is a therapeutic component of the Bloom Program facilitated by a team of professionals who provide a holistic integrated approach to therapy, incorporating speech and language, Applied Behavioral Analysis and occupational therapy services across all aspects of the daily routine.
