Growing Places Therapy provides a full range of pediatric physical, occupational and speech therapy services in your child's home, school, or daycare settings.


Depending on your child's needs, assessments can be comprehensive to evaluate multiple developmental areas (fine and gross motor development, visual-perceptual skills, sensory processing, play and social skills) or targeted to evaluate specific areas of difficulty (i.e. fine motor skills, balance, handwriting). To fully understand your child's strengths and challenges, we typically employ standardized assessment tools, clinical observations, classroom observations, and parent/teacher interviews.

Individual Treatment Sessions

Services are provided according to your child's individualized treatment plan in the setting determined to be most beneficial. Treatment sessions include discussions/consultations with the parent, caregiver, or teacher.


If deemed valuable, the therapist may observe your child in other environments such as camp or extracurricular activities and/or may attend school meetings, etc.

Home Programs

We believe that the parent/caregiver plays a vital role in ensuring the success of their child. Our therapists emphasize caregiver training and will design a personalized home program specific to your child and easy to incorporate into daily life.

In addition to these traditional services, Growing Places Therapy offers therapeutic swimming and yoga instruction.

We serve children in Austin and surrounding areas which include: Buda, Cedar Park, Dripping Springs, Georgetown, Kyle, Round Rock, and others.
