Our Children First provides center based evaluation and therapeutic services for preschool children ages 3 to 5 years old (CPSE) and kindergarten up to 12th grade (CSE).

  • Cognitive (thinking & learning)
  • Communication (understanding, and using speech language)
  • Adaptive (self-help skills)
  • Social Emotional (connecting with others)
  • Physical or Motor (vision, hearing or movement)
