About the Company
Located in St. Louis, Missouri, Blue Stars Therapy provides premier home, clinic and community-based early intervention therapy services for young children with Autism and other developmental delays using the groundbreaking evidence of the Early Start Denver Model Curriculum. We typically serve children as young as 12 months and firmly believe in the "early" aspect of early intervention.
Blue Stars Therapy was formed from a strong desire to break away from “one-size-fits-all” therapy services and create a culture that promotes collaboration, innovation, and respect for the families we serve. Our goal is to help foster learning and promote functional skill acquisition across all developmental domains through meaningful interactions, play, and parental involvement within the child's natural environment. We believe each child is a "star" and possesses unique strengths and qualities. Through our play-based, child-led therapy approach, we strive to tap into each child's learning preferences to develop individualized intervention plans to help each child become the best version of themselves. We encourage our clients and their families to "reach for the stars"!
We are a small start-up business with a passion for making high quality early intervention accessible to all children and families. Our current team consists of Occupational Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists and Behavior Analysts. We are excited to grow our team and look forward to enhancing our company to best serve our clients.
