South Shore Therapies began as a concept when Stacey Szklut, MS, OTR/L recognized a great need for high-quality, personalized occupational therapy services on the South Shore of Massachusetts and Cape Cod. The concept became a reality in April 2004 when South Shore Therapies, specializing in sensory integration intervention, opened its doors in Weymouth. In 2006 South Shore Therapies began to provide speech and language services and, shortly thereafter, opened our second site in Pembroke. We continued to grow and expand our clinical expertise to meet the needs of the community. In August 2018 we opened our third site in Norwood. When our original Weymouth site could no longer meet our capacity we created a new state of the art space in Hingham in January 2020. Most recently we moved our Pembroke office to a newly designed building near to our first location, but closer for our Hanover clients. Our goal at South Shore Therapies remains the same, to work together with our clients and their families to create “Results that Make a Difference.”
In meeting the needs of our clients and their families we have also continued to expand our available therapeutic modalities and specialists. Across our sites we have therapists with a wide variety of OT and speech-language related specialty trainings and certifications. These include Sensory Integration, Oral Motor and Feeding Therapies including the SOS Approach, Therapeutic Music Programs, Brain Gym®, Visual-Vestibular Integration, Neurodevelopmental Treatment Approach (NDT), Handwriting Without Tears®, Bal-A-Vis-X, Reflex Integration, PROMPT© Intervention, Lidcombe® Fluency Treatment and provision of AAC systems. All of our therapists specialize in pediatric intervention.
