The Community of Sarasota County Equity and Access Grant will ensure children with disabilities receive wrap-around therapeutic services while attending The Florida Center’s Starfish Academy preschool. Children can receive occupational, speech/language and/or mental health services throughout their day, lessoning the burden on their parents to take them to separate appointments at different locations.
“It’s a win-win for everyone,” said Skoglund. “The onsite therapy model is convenient for parents and teachers alike. The therapists and teachers actually work together to help the children progress more quickly in achieving their developmental goals.”
