What makes STAR institute unique
CUTTING EDGE SPD EDUCATION
Our in-house clinical experts and research faculty train clinicians from all over the world through conferences, mentorships, and workshops.
INTENSIVE THERAPY MODEL
We use an intensive “burst” treatment (three to five times a week) that is more effective in treating sensory issues.
Parent-focused education and coaching helps families move treatment into the natural settings such as home and school.
