Spot on Therapy is AMAZING! My daughter has worked with them on and off for 7 years and she has made great progress and met so many goals. She even improved her balance enough that she learned how to ride a bike with her PT, which was an incredible boost to her confidence!! If you are looking for a safe place for therapy for your kids with people who will lovingly push them toward their goals, look no further - this is it!!

Professional and courteous staff.
