Welcome to Play Works
Speech Therapy Services, Inc.



Our Approach

At Play Works, we believe children learn best through play and exploration and when they feel supported, safe, and heard. Therefore, we have a relationship-centered philosophy that focuses on meeting children where they are at, supporting their individual differences, and building their skills through play. We use a family-centered approach to support our clients and their caregivers. Parents are the experts on their children and are their child’s first playmate. We aim to empower parents and caregivers to support their child’s development through play and throughout their daily routines, by actively involving them in sessions and providing coaching and feedback.



Individualized Speech and Language Evaluations and Therapy 

We offer in-home and virtual speech and language evaluations and treatment sessions. Sessions are one-on-one, provided in your home, and tailored to meet your little one where they are. All new clients require an evaluation or screening prior to scheduling. Previous evaluations completed within the past 12 months are accepted.
