"We recently became aware that our five-year-old son might be having some issues with his sensory processing. Being a homeschooling family, we opted to seek help through venues other than our public school system. We contacted Nazareth and were thankful to receive a screening free of charge, along with an informative, in-depth report that proved quite helpful in arriving at a diagnosis. It has given us direction, and encouraged us that we weren't just 'imagining things.' We will now pursue occupational therapy to assist our son with his needs, and we are so grateful for those at Nazareth who came alongside us to help as we sorted out some confusing behaviors. Thank you, Dr. Shriber, for your help."

"The OT group for toddlers given by the occupational therapy program at Nazareth College is very well run. My two year old daughter loves going each week. The kids are provided with many fun activities that incorporate sensory processing with fine and gross motor development. My daughter really enjoys all parts of group- craft time, sensory activities, and the obstacle courses. Of course, her favorite part is when they get to play with and eat jello jigglers!"

"The OT program for children at Nazareth has been a wonderful experience that my toddler, Juliette and I enjoy every week. It has been very rewarding watching my child progress in areas she's had problems with in the past, and to "rise above", developing strong skill sets and the confidence needed to push through her fears and embrace success. The staff and students are friendly, professional and encouraging to Juliette, and to me. We have grown to cherish our time at Nazareth and are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this program. "
