Home: Welcome

Playworks provides informal evaluations, standardized assessments, and ongoing therapy in a clinical setting. We have experience with a wide variety of speech/language, motor and sensory disorders.  We see children with a variety of disorders, including: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Apraxia, Dyspraxia, Motor Speech Disorders, Sensory Integration Disorders, and Sensory Processing Disorders.

Our Speech Therapists help children have fun while communicating. We specialize in treating children with a variety of disorders, including: Articulation Disorders, Language Disorders, Fluency Disorders, and difficulties with Executive Functioning. We have expertise in Myofunctional Therapy (Tongue Thrust), and Augmentative/Alternative Communication. Floortime and play-based methods guide our treatment decisions for all types of therapy.

Our Occupational Therapists provide treatment through functional activity and play so children can thrive in their environments.  We are trained in the Sequential Oral Sensory (SOS) approach to Feeding. Our OTs treat children with a variety of disorders, including: Torticollis, Fine Motor problems, Motor Planning Disorders, Sensory Processing Disorders, Sensory Integration Disorders, Difficulty with Handwriting, Low tone, and Genetic Disorders (e.g., Down Syndrome, Angelman Syndrome, Prader-Willi) . All of our OTs are trained to treat children in Early Intervention and School-based settings. 

Our Physical Therapists focus on increasing your child’s participation and independence in daily caregiving and family/school activities. Physical therapy can help with motor development and function, improve strength and endurance and enhance your child's learning opportunities. Children may need physical therapy to help with developing or regaining motor development, strength, range of motion, endurance, balance and coordination.



Playworks is unique among therapy companies, offering individualized clinic-based therapy services.  We've supported the DC Metro area since 2010. In fostering a child's development, an approach that harnesses the natural inclination towards play and self-expression can be profoundly empowering. When therapy seamlessly integrates into the vibrant world of a child's imagination and interests, the learning process becomes an extension of their innate curiosity and joy. This creates an environment where development occurs not through rigid routines but through the exhilaration of discovery, self-expression, and the cultivation of intrinsic motivation. By honoring the unique rhythms and preferences of each child, such an approach nurtures not just developmental skills but also a sense of autonomy, creativity, and confidence.​
