• Occupational Therapy Consulting for Homeschoolers

    Every family has an educational choice. Collins Academy Therapy Services provides resources, online education, and private consultations for homeschools and occupational therapists to come together in guiding children towards their specific purpose in life.

  • What We Do

    Any homeschool family can and should thrive. That doesn't mean that homeschooling is easy. In fact, sometimes it almost feels impossible. When a child has walked out of the room for the 15th time because he just can't focus; another child is crying over the number of math problems on a page; pencils have been thrown even though you, as the parent, have lovingly shown your child how to correctly hold the pencil everyday for the past month; you feel like you can never be enough for your children. Collins Academy Therapy services can help by combining a background in occupational therapy with experience as a homeschool mom.

    Specifically, we

    1. Make personalized recommendations for your homeschool day

    2. Provide the best resources for your specific needs

    3. Act as a sounding board for questions as both a homeschool mother and an occupational therapist
