TheraPLACE is a comprehensive learning center providing occupational, physical, speech and behavioral therapy services to children, young adults, and families in Louisville, Kentucky and the surrounding area. At TheraPLACE, we strive to help children and young adults PLAY, LIVE, and COMMUNICATE effectively. We provide individualized, family-oriented, research-supported therapy services aimed at helping clients and families reach their maximum potential. Success is created through a collaborative approach that includes building a community of support & promoting family involvement.
Early Screenings Can Boost Academic Achievement
We strongly believe the powerful combination of early intervention and family involvement is critical to the success of children. Screenings can help determine if a child needs extra support to achieve their potential in a variety of areas:
- Fine Motor (drawing and writing, cutting with scissors, manipulating fasteners when dressing)
- Gross Motor (posture, balance, strength, coordination)
- Self-care (eating with utensils, dressing, completing morning routine)
- Cognition (attention, problem solving, memory)
- Self-regulation (impulse control, self-soothing, transitions)
- Language (expressive and receptive, comprehension)
Screening Available for All Ages
TheraPLACE can provide screenings for children and young adults of all ages and abilities. Based on information provided prior to a screening, screenings are customized to allow our therapists to focus on your priorities.
TheraPLACE is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am-6:00 pm. Call us to set a time to stop by our facility and take a tour!

Meet Alicia, Occupational Therapist Department Head
Our therapist, Alicia, was homeschooled! After graduation, Alicia attended the University of Louisville for two years before transferring to Spalding University where she received her Bachelor of Science in Health Science as well as her Master of Science in Occupational Therapy degree. Alicia has had a passion for working with kids in various ways since the age of 13.
"I was homeschooled K-12, and wouldn't do it any differently if I had it to do over again. It allowed me to participate in so many different activities, while still gaining an excellent education. I believe it prepared me very well for college, and gave me the intrinsic motivation to get to where I am today. I absolutely love working with kids as an OT, and homeschooling prepared me very well my future career!" -Alicia
