The Little Therapy House - Resources to Support Child Development

All children grow following similar patterns of development, but every child develops at his or her own pace. If your child is behind in some areas, getting answers from a trusted expert can help you understand your own child's developmental rhythm and give you the tools you need to support this journey so that he or she can thrive.

We help you understand your child.
