ABOUT K&A

 Kraska & Associates, Inc. was  established in 2003 to provide child-centered occupational and speech  therapy for children.  We strive to assemble a group of dedicated  professionals who are committed, well-educated, and experienced in the  area of pediatric occupational and speech therapy. 

 

At Kraska &  Associates, we strongly believe in child-centered therapy as it is  essential to the development of cognitive, physical, social, and  emotional well–being of children. We want to build the underlying  foundational skills of children so each child will have the ability to  excel in multiple areas and be successful in whatever endeavor they  chose.  We also want each family and child to know that it is through  appreciating, honoring, respecting, and embracing our differences, that the uniqueness of each child and person is valued.

Message From Julie

THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR YOUR TAGLINE.

Thank you for visiting our website! I grew up in a large family and was  blessed to be surrounded by friends, nature and family.  Growing up, we  laughed, played hard, took risks, and made many mistakes.  It was those  experiences that grounded me in the belief that play was important to  my overall development.  As I grew older, I began to realize that we  were losing the essence of play in children’s lives.  Play is so  important in child development that it has been recognized by the United  Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child.   The American Academy of Pediatrics says play is essential for helping  children reach important developmental milestones as well as helping  them manage stress and become resilient.  That is my belief and has lead  me to our mission of being a child-centered, play based therapy practice.
