Helping kids who struggle with attention, getting work done and handling big feelings through nature, so that you can see your child shine.
We provide holistic occupational therapy services in Flemington NJ and an amazing year long program to develop executive function skills offered virtually.
What we do
We help kids develop, gain new thinking skills and confidence.
Children do well, when they can. If your child is struggling at home or school- we can help. Our nature based approach helps kids open up, learn new skills and motivates them to use these skills in real life.
Frequent challenges that we help with include attention to task, following directions, knowing about their own body, playing in a safe way, making friends, decreasing anxiety and developing problem solving skills.
Come play with our therapy goats, feel the powerful movement from a horse or learn to make a tree fort in the woods.
We love to share our results with you- every week and every session. Seeing your child grow and bloom is the best evidence.
Our kids ask if they are coming to sessions with us every week. Parents always say that their child is asking if it's the day for their session or group.
Sessions and groups as unique as your family
The skillbuilder package helps families get started on a specific goal right away. This package is perfect for families who are focused on working on a specific skill or those who already have a great support team in school, outpatient therapy or through friends and family.
This package offers broad support for developing skills and reaching goals. Each weeky hour long OT sessions provides important skill development, and parent support along the way to help you and your child reach those goals. This package is the perfect mix of direct help and family support.
The most support for families with immediate need for help. We can help through a crisis, growth or skills spurt or to help your child make amazing progress over a broad range of skills. Here we provide monthly community or home sessions, weekly activities and weekly 1:1 hour long OT sessions. The intensive package delivers it all to make maximum impact.
Nature groups help kids build thinking, planning, attention, team work and problem solving skills with fun outdoor activities. Groups meet once per week for 90 minutes.
Developmental playgroups are for kids 3-6 years old and help younger children develop critical physical, sensory and social skills through the benefits of nature.
Coaching is a model that helps kids set goals and then provides the proven framework to help them reach their goals. Children learn to use the framework to help themselves and become more independent in managing their time, planning and organizing their work and doing daily tasks for home and school independently. We offer hourly packages and special events.
The Lucky Ones is a new online program that guides parents through developing their child's focus, cooperation, emotional regulation and independence. This is a year long program that provides parents monthly training sessions and weekly activities to complete at home with their child. We walk side by side with you through the process of developing your child's executive function skills. This allows you to be the leader, guide and support for your child, without having to do it alone. The Lucky Ones is easily accessible, affordable and always available to support you.
why we do it
We’re a team
We're a husband and wife, mom and dad team. We know the dreams and goals that you have for your children are special, just like ours. We are here to help guide you and your child on a new path of learning, growing and blooming.
We don’t offer one-size-ﬁts-all clinical approaches or unrealistic promises of magical one-hour a week sessions. What we offer is a comprehensive and holistic program of change for your child and family, easy to do outdoor activities and integrated support to equip you for ongoing carryover so you feel like the important leader of your child’s support team!
We want to foster growth...
At Epona, we don’t just offer one-on-one occupational therapy sessions, we offer therapy packages, group sessions, coaching work and a year-long online program to support your work with your child to develop their executive function skills. We do it differently because each child and family has their own goals and support needs. Some families want therapy services in a weekly face to face format, other families are looking for a fun group for their child to attend, for others- an online program is perfect.
For caregivers, with traditional therapy there's really limited time for conversation at the end of your kid’s one hour session for just about 5 minutes, which always feels rushed.So you leave and come back the next week, but there is so much time in between sessions where you might have questions or would like to activities at home, or feel like you should remember what your therapist told you to do at home but can’t. So the traditional model feels really lacking to parents because you want to know what’s happening in your child’s session, what they’re working on, how they did, and what you can do at home to help them make progress. But without open lines of communication between sessions, that doesn’t happen.
So we decided to do something totally different at Epona to address these shortcomings in a traditional therapy model. We believe that in person sessions, groups, coaching and virtual support can all be effective and support your child developing. So we include nature, parent empowerment, team communication, and customized school and home programs as integrated parts to all of our options.
