Onsite Therapy for Enrolled Children

Our onsite speech, occupational, and physical therapy offers families a convenient way to access quality services. We provide direct therapy with push-in services, when appropriate, that allow us to support your child within their "natural" environment. By allowing children to learn and practice skills in the exact place they will be using them, we see progress that translates to lasting success.

In-Home
Speech, Occupation, & Physical Therapy

Our experienced team of speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists provide in-home evaluations and therapy services to families in Cape Girardeau and Perry Counties. Providing services in a child's home allows us to use everyday activities and routines to teach and practice new skills. Parents are invited to participate in our sessions to learn how to continue practice between appointments.

Group Therapy &
Push-In Services

Providing services in the classroom allows your child the opportunity to develop skills in the context of their daily lives. Whether we are working on social skills, handwriting, or gross motor skills, our group therapy creates a motivating and safe space for learning. Using evidence-based approaches and interactive activities, every child will build confidence in their skills while having fun!

What Sets Us Apart

  • In-home services are available for children who are not enrolled in our program

  • Our team has advanced training AAC, Apraxia of Speech, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Literacy, Fine and Gross Motor Development, and Sensory Integration

  • We are a Medicaid-approved AAC evaluation site for the state of Missouri 

  • Parent coaching and home practice programs allow parents to support ongoing learning outside of therapy

Our Approach

We believe that children are the most important work. After connecting with families who were struggling to find effective therapy solutions and consistent childcare for their children, we were called to find an answer. By breaking down the barriers to caring for a child with special needs and offering therapy services within the preschool day, parents can trust that their child is receiving the loving care and support they need. In our commitment to supporting our community, we have expanded our services to offer in-home therapy so we can reach as many families as possible.  

At Southeast Little Learners, therapy is a team effort, and we value parent input and involvement in the process. When parents cannot be present, we will provide session notes, videos, and home activities. Empowering parents and caregivers with strategies to support their children at home ensures children will continue to make progress and develop lifelong skills.
