Child Success Center

Speech • Occupational Therapy • Social Skills

The Center offers on-site support services for children at the JCC who can benefit from Speech & Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy and individual consultations. Social skills groups and parent counseling are also offered. Collaboration with parents and teachers is an integral part of creating the path to success and is the cornerstone of the Center’s philosophy. Early identification and timely intervention are essential for promoting optimal growth in children.

The staff is comprised of highly trained and experienced professionals in the fields of education, speech and language, occupational therapy, child development and parenting. For our nursery school, camp and Kids Club families the Center provides the opportunity to have children brought directly to their services during class time. Center staff will be able to bring the children directly to their services as well as support the teachers and counselors in the classroom and during camp activities.

All sessions are held at the JCC.
