A Few Words About Us

PlayWorks OT PT SLP is a private practice of professionals offering physical, occupational and speech therapies that enhance our children's individual capabilities and foster their independence.

Our licensed therapists provide services to children at our fun-inspired, state-of-the-art clinic in Rego Park, NYC and at schools across the Tri-State area. We provide services to children ranging in age from babies, toddlers to young adults. Comprehensive assessments, customized intervention, family support and consultation services are available to our clients and the community. PlayWorks also offers many multidisciplinary programs designed to create valuable learning and life experiences for children with special needs to help them participate more fully in the community. We look forward to realizing our vision of becoming a cutting-edge organization that answers the call of one of the community's most vulnerable populations.

We contract with Early Intervention agencies, the Department of Education, and accept private payments.

We provide Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy treatment services to children ages 3-5 years old for CPSE and school age children ages 5-18 years old for CSE cases.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple. Help children achieve their potential in a fun, nurturing and safe environment. Our program is comprehensive, and we believe in an integrated approach utilizing the skills of our experienced, multi-disciplinary team with an emphasis on sensory integration. Each child's needs are unique, and we'll develop a plan as unique as they are. PlayWorks was born out of sheer love of the job and our commitment to children. At Playworks, we work together with your family and any other involved therapists, coordinators, and educators to develop a treatment plan unique to your child. Together, we'll formulate objectives and goals based on your child's skill level and developmental milestones. With each child we see, we aim to improve self esteem, attention and cooperative play skills.

Your child will receive services in an intimate and very hands-on setting. We hope to be a resource for both you and your child. As much as we love working with children, our goal will always be to graduate them from our services to be successful, independent and confident.
