Children FIRST Therapy provides the highest quality early intervention services for children birth to three with developmental delays through our unique, integrated preschool and group therapy programs. Our integrated preschool provides an opportunity for children to learn from and receive therapy with their typically developing friends rather than attending an individual session in a more subdued clinical environment.
Founded by Kathy Blair, for more than 20 years, Children FIRST Therapy, has been the only therapy program in the Spokane area offering an integrated preschool run by therapists who skillfully engage your child in their therapy work during their preschool activities and learning.
Children FIRST Therapy is also a high-quality, successful preschool for typically developing children. In our program, therapists and early childhood specialists teach children with developmental disabilities and typically developing children the same curriculum that challenges each student to grow and reach their own fullest potential.
Children FIRST Therapy serves the child’s parents and care givers as well; offering in-depth resource coordination and hands-on involvement in the child’s therapy. We also provide in home therapy sessions for children within our service area.
For children in the East, West and Central Valley school districts, Children FIRST Therapy is the only integrated preschool and the best choice for your child’s success! Our full range of programs and services are provided to families within the boundary lines of those school districts. Our preschool and sensory and movement groups are also open to children within Spokane County.
