KORT Kids offers high quality pediatric occupational therapy services provided by well-trained therapists. As part of this mission, we offer resources, education, support and encouragement to parents and families. Our state-of-the-art facility features a large selection of therapeutic equipment to help each child meet their goals.

Each child requires a full evaluation in order to initiate therapy services. Our objective is to develop a child-centered, family-focused treatment plan. Every evaluation includes a parent conference to review the results and answer any questions.

We conduct therapy sessions in a modern environment using specialized equipment. Our therapists use play-based activities to create a 'just right' challenge for each child.

Physical and Speech Therapy coming soon.
