Meet Walk, Talk, Play!
Play is the work of children. It is structured or spontaneous, symbolic or abstract. It engages the body and the imagination for the purpose of enjoyment! As pediatric speech, occupational, and physical therapists we have a passion for enhancing motor skills, sensory processing and language through play. We hope to inspire families, teachers, and therapists through products and activities we love, as well as share resources and research for preschool aged children (2 years-5 years). Let’s play!
