OUR SERVICES
20 YEARS AND COUNTING

ARCADIA THERAPY SERVICES is a group of 25 physical, occupational and speech therapists who train hard to provide programs that change the lives of kids and teens with developmental disabilities. 

 

We have been assisting Arizona families with passion and purpose since 1999. Therapy visits are covered through DDD (the Division of Developmental Disabilities) and private pay. We address challenges that result from diagnoses of autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and cognitive disability.

We meet families where real life happens! We typically begin with in-home sessions, to address issues that occur within daily life routines. We then expand outward, to community settings that enable us to help kids grow in countless cool and unexpected ways.

 

We are best known for Impossible Dreams, and our innovative work with kids who struggle with food.

Parents Say...

Therapists Say...

 

Because of the dogs, my daughter is coming out of her shell and is learning to use her words.

Having therapy with the dogs doesn't seem like therapy at all. The dogs are always welcoming to the kids and open them socially and emotionally in ways people can't.

Sebastian's fear of dogs is very tough for him but with Arcadia's help, support and encouragement, he overcomes his fears.

 

My name is Xavier. I feel more confident after working with the dogs. I am now a Junior Dog Trainer. My favorite dog is Rebel. I love dogs!

My name is Chase. I like playing games with the dogs. My favorite is throwing and kicking a ball to them.

My name is Gabriel. Radford is by far my favorite dog. His jump rope trick blows me away!

 

Children's faces light up as they play with the dogs alongside their peers. What a delight to see them succeed! The dogs motivate kids to try new foods, follow complex directions, and repeat words until they are understood. Kids will wait in line, win and lose, toss, catch, kick and run...all so they can engage with these crazy great dogs!
