Practice Philosophy

“Aaris Therapy Group pledges to provide exceptional therapy and services to schools, students and children to advance communication, motor, sensory, academic, and social abilities. It is our belief that through combined efforts, all things are possible.”

The company history:

Aaris Therapy Group was founded in March 2003. Aaris began as Gold Therapy Services, focusing mainly on pediatric therapy. In the last 12 years the practice has grown to include an expanded outpatient facility and over 18 school contracts. Aaris continues to offer outpatient speech, occupational, and physical therapies as well as applied behavioral analysis at our office facility and in the community for families interested in a high quality therapy service delivery model. In August 2013, Gold Therapy Services changed names to Aaris Therapy Group to reemphasize its true specialty area, therapies focused around special education and helping students’ access curriculum including social skill groups.
