HOW APF CAN HELP YOU
IN THE HOME:

During this time, the therapist will work on a variety of skills that are most beneficial for the child and their family. They will also incorporate time for play, breaks, and mealtime. The family is more than welcome to observe and also participate. These services are offered to all families at the initial start of services.
