Sky Bridge Therapies is an 8,400 square foot speech, occupational and feeding therapy clinic conveniently located just minutes from I-5 in Lakewood and just a short drive from Joint Base Lewis McChord. There you will find a family-friendly environment from our reception area to our thoughtfully designed therapy rooms. Sky Bridge utilizes 4 dedicated gyms, a scooter board room, a reading room, a writing room and several therapy rooms all designed with engaging themes and décor to provide an inviting, fun and exciting environment that will keep your child motivated in working toward his or her goals. Using the state-of-the-art space, our knowledgeable therapists work to provide individualized therapy using a team-based approach to produce optimal results across speech/language and occupational therapy goals.
Additionally, you’ll find a treatment room dedicated to feeding therapy. The cleverly designed “feeding room” is intended to replicate a “sit down” meal at home. Here your child can practice and learn to tackle feeding concerns related to oral-motor skills (biting, chewing), texture, “picky eating” and other issues that limit their ability to eat well-balanced meals.
Sky Bridge Therapies is also unique in that it has added a Reading/Writing program and is providing teletherapy in all areas – speech, occupational and feeding therapy – for families across Pierce, King and Thurston County.
Whereas some families have to travel many miles, often between counties, to go from one therapy to the next, Sky Bridge Therapies addresses all of your child’s needs in one facility. Contact us for a tour of our facility or to meet our therapists to decide if our clinic is right for your child.
The King of Swings
Sky Bridge proudly features two swing rooms designed by Alex Lopiccolo, nationally known as “the King of Swings.” These rooms include swings, obstacle courses, a rock wall and many tools to assist children receiving occupational therapy and provide a unique environment for speech therapists to work with children.
As we know, as parents and caregivers, children are motivated by exploration and play. At Sky Bridge Therapies our speech and occupational therapists believe in the use of therapeutic activities in meaningful contexts within a playful environment. Our play-based philosophy can be seen across our services, when working with children in the areas of speech and language as well as when addressing skills related to cognition/academia, fine motor, focus/attention, sensory integration, self-regulation, and self-care. The therapists at Sky Bridge creatively structure motivational challenges to assist children in reaching their therapeutic goals.
At Sky Bridge Therapies, we strive to set your child up for success. We are committed to providing your child with opportunities to play and have fun while, at the same time, helping your child learn new skills.
