Ability is Limitless
We created Big Blue Canopy
with a vision of empowering families to
maximize their child’s potential. We are an innovative pediatric therapy practice treating individuals from birth to young adults, and offer a blend of one on one individualized therapy, group classes, home programs and a play-based developmental and rehabilitation gym. Through our unique open gym membership, we provide families with the opportunity to practice newly learned skills, stay engaged, and continue to make gains, even after discharge from therapy, at an affordable cost.
Our goal is to create a community where kids and young adults can develop life-long skills, socialize, and learn to accept their differences through play, leisure, and recreation.
Big Blue Canopy provides family-centered services, with an emphasis on caring for all aspects of life. Our therapists are dedicated to providing children and young adults with comprehensive, compassionate, and dynamic evidence-based therapy. Due to the complex needs of our client’s, therapists may co-treat to maximize a client’s abilities. In addition to individualized therapy, we also offer a variety of classes and programs in a group setting that is designed to be an extension of our client's plan of care.
Learning life skills
A child’s main job or “occupation “is playing and learning. An occupational therapist can evaluate the skills for play activities, school performance, and activities of daily living to help children and young adults manage sensory, motor, cognitive, social, and perceptual challenges that may affect daily learning and living.

Enhancing speech, language, and literacy
Speech and language therapists address the vital and fundamental ability to communicate. Our clinicians introduce a variety of fun, experience-based language activities to promote curiosity and conversation while learning. Augmentative communication devices, gestures, and assistive technology are a few adaptations to foster independent communication skills. In addition, feeding and oral motor needs can be addressed by the team. Less
Food is at the center of our lives. Mealtime help us build strong family relationships. It can be a source of pleasure, celebration, and sometimes challenges! At Big Blue Canopy, our Occupational Therapists and Speech-Language Pathologists have extensive training in feeding and swallowing to meet the specific needs of your child. Our approach works on improving oral motor skills necessary for safe/efficient intake, increasing the variety of foods tolerated within a child’s diet, and increasing tolerance with various textures of foods.

There’s something for everyone at Big Blue Canopy. The concept behind Big Blue Canopy's group classes is to have children and young adults with developmental delays and various abilities participate in the same activities that their peers and siblings normally perform. The classes are offered in a sensory friendly environment and are designed to meet the diverse needs of our families. Our goal is to have fun, build self-confidence, and be successful. LessMore
