A Focus On Service

At Theraplay, we approach everything we do with a servant mindset.

Our children and their families come first, of course. The way  we serve our kids is what really matters.  Theraplay’s speech therapists, and occupational therapists customize their expertise to address the specific needs of each child.  No two children are treated in the same way. We utilize a full-range of activities and objectives in order to measure and achieve our collective goals.  As our name implies, we take a creative approach, using therapy, play and other methods to serve our children.

The servant mindset at Theraplay extends beyond our practice. Theraplay has an ongoing history of community service in Sanford and beyond. We welcome the opportunities we have to provide resources to families in the area. We’re happy to conduct workshops and seminars with local schools, civic groups, churches, agencies, practitioners, and parent organizations to help families flourish. Any time the Theraplay team can be of service to your group, we hope you will call on us.



We are very pleased with our Speech Therapist, Miss Holly. She is so positive and kind to our daughter. We love that she explains what our daughter is working on after each session. Ms. Holly also gives our family new ideas on how we can encourage and help our daugher. We have seen improvement already. Thank you, Theraplay!

I absolutely love the staff and all they offer. I never feel rushed nor over looked. Every visit they make us feel like we are top priority. My 3 & 4 year old get excited as soon as we turn on Chatham Street. I couldn’t ask for a friendlier place for our 2 little ones and in just a few sessions I see an improvement. I recommend Theraplay 1000%.
