Established in 2005, Leaps and Bounds was the first pediatric therapy center of its kind in the Greater St. Louis area, and is the only facility of its kind in St. Charles County. Located on Jungermann Road in St. Peters, Missouri, Leaps and Bounds was formed when Occupational Therapists, Lisa Cooseman and Carrie Salyer, had a vision to help children and families who were not able to get the services they needed from other resources. Leaps and Bounds is a unique facility that embraces not only a child’s therapy needs, but provides a comprehensive program that is family-centered.
Our therapists specialize in treating children with sensory processing concerns. These concerns may affect children who have no specific medical diagnosis but struggle with daily life activities such as attending, following directions, and learning. Sensory processing concerns may also be present in children with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, ADD, ADHD, and other similar diagnoses.
It is our hope that you will find this website to be a great resource. We invite you to leave your comments, experiences, and stories on the articles found throughout the site. Our intention is that parents, therapists and educators will be able to share information and ideas with each other with the ultimate goal of improving the lives of children affected by Sensory Processing Disorder.
