Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.
At Gentle Care Therapy, we understand the value of family and support. Because of this, we create strong partnerships with the local families that we serve. For years, we have delivered quality early intervention to children across the greater Philadelphia area. We work closely with parents and caregivers to create helpful learning strategies for every child. Above all, we are here to serve your child. If you have concerns, see below for information about state-funded support programs. Specifically, these programs help support infants and toddlers in their development.

Are you worried about Your Child's development?
Many parents have concerns about their child’s development. In fact, this is a normal part of parenthood. However, if you have specific concerns about your child’s ability to do any of the following, we can help you.
- Eat or swallow
- Communicate properly
- Walk or crawl
- Balance and maintain coordination
- Sustain strength and movement
- Be expressive and have positive social interactions
- Build play skills
- Learn pro-social behaviors
If so, you may qualify for free early intervention therapy services.
In Pennsylvania, infants and toddlers in need of early intervention receive free services. First, children must have an initial evaluation. Specifically, this evaluation will determine your program eligibility.
