Come See Us in Action

We invite you to come for a tour and see our programs for yourself. Please schedule a time with our Director of Admission to observe the program of your choice. Once your child is receiving services, you will be able to return and observe them in their program. Many of our treatment rooms are equipped with video cameras and can be viewed live from our offices. There’s only so much an IEP can address so our families find great value in this unique service because a picture (or video in this case) is worth a thousand words.

Complete our “Request Information” form, email our Director of Admissions at [email protected] or call us at 410-517-1113 to schedule a time to visit and see us in action.
