Building Bridges Therapy offers speech, occupational, physical, and ABA therapy in individual and group settings. Our wide range of therapy options ensure that your child will grow and learn in the method that best meets their needs!
Building Bridges is an awesome place for therapy. Our son has been going here since he was 2 and he is now 7. Without Building Bridges therapy help we don’t know what we would’ve done. They have filled tremendous learning gaps in our son due to epileptic seizures. He can now read and functions normally in the school setting and with peers. The therapists are loving and caring and are very structured in accomplishing goals set. Couldn’t ask for a better therapy setting. Very pleased
My son attended Building Bridges from 2015 until April 2017, he made wonderful progress during his time there. He started as non-verbal at 18 months old, and today he is speaking in full sentences. He has also made progress with OT, PT and ABA. The ABA “pre-school” was great and he still talks about all of his friends and therapists. He would still be attending Building Bridges if we had not moved to Jacksonville, FL. We miss you guys!! Thanks for everything!
We have been attending a variety of therapies (OT, PT, Feeding, and Speech) for the past 5 years. The staff and therapists have been nothing but wonderful to work with. We have had several therapists with us since our daughter was brought home from the hospital at three weeks old… they are like family! I highly recommend the quality of the therapists, the staff, and the facility…. and we can’t beat the location!
Getting started with services is easy and our staff is here to help, your first step is to call our office.
