After working for others, Haley decided that she needed to create a clinic where Connecticut families can receive the highest-quality care for their children. The More to Say way is her approach to providing naturalistic and holistic pediatric therapy that focuses on a child’s interests while teaching the skills they need for success.
Haley knows that children learn best through play and doing activities that interest them. She encourages her therapists to use a naturalistic approach, which ensures that children are engaged in activities that not only build their skills but also appeal to their interests in a play-based setting. This gets children motivated and willing to participate in their therapy, which is why this method is so successful.
Helping children develop the skills they need involves looking at their family dynamics, how they respond to their environment, and other aspects of their life that can impact their development. To do this, our therapists encourage families to take part in their child’s therapy sessions and provide strategies and tools that families can use at home to give children the best possible therapy outcomes.
