Stepping Stones Therapy and Learning Academy is a pediatric speech language, occupational and physical therapy practice that has served central Orange County for more than 10 years. We provide comprehensive evaluations and treatment to children of all ages. Additionally, Stepping Stones Therapy is recognized by the state of California as a Nonpublic Agency (NPA).

We strongly believe parents and caregivers are vital team members during the therapy process because they are primary language facilitators. We are strong advocates of Individualized Treatment Plans because every person is unique with special needs, and each therapy session should be individualized to meet those needs of clients and their family and caregivers.
