About Us

Creative Development, which was first opened in 2007, grew out of a combined vision to provide holistic services to children and their families.

Acknowledging that life happens 24 hours/day, seven days/week, Deanne & Lauren, who have combined over 40 years experience in the field of occupational therapy, decided to pursue their desire to help children, families and the support personnel who work with children of varying abilities on a daily basis. Their vision included and continues to thrive on individualized treatment planning. Working holistically to meet the needs of each family and to affect change where they need it the most: in the activities of everyday living in all the various contexts children participate at home and in the community. In addition, the holistic team advocates for families by attending PPT meetings and team meetings, working with children in schools, their home and within the community.

The Creative Development team, through high quality, innovative therapeutic programs, strives to best enhance children’s capabilities and to foster independence.

If an environment is static or unchanged, the child may quickly adapt to and master the environment. Thus, it is important that the treatment environment is constantly evolving, changing, and providing opportunities for the child to grow. This is especially important for children who have difficulty with change, flexibility of thought, transitions, and social situations.
