About Sunny Days

Sunny Days is an early intervention provider serving children with developmental needs from birth to three years of age. Our services are provided in natural environments, wherever children and families typically find themselves: home, child care environments or other community locations (parks, playgrounds, shopping centers, etc.). We provide a full range of services: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychological services and Special Instruction services. We tailor these services to specifically target each child's needs with an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). Our practitioners design intervention strategies that are built around a family's daily routines and activities. Depending upon location, Sunny Days can provide all necessary services, including initial evaluations (to determine eligibility) and all IFSP authorized services, to individuals of all developmental levels ages 0-3.

In addition to its early intervention services, Sunny Days also provides pediatric home care for children up to 18 years of age. Sunny Days offers a variety of personalized and individualized services related to the specific needs of each child and family. All staff members have specialized experience in both early intervention and pediatric home care.

Virtual intervention is new to the early childhood development community, and we're happy to be pioneers in this method of special delivery by offering online coaching sessions with full video and audio features.


Sunshine Center for Developmental Services

Sunny Days, in an effort to build a welcoming physical location where children with autism can learn and grow, created the Sunshine Center. Our professional early childhood development educators and behavior specialists use the Sunshine Center as a place to help foster families' abilities to promote their children's complete development. Children who visit the Sunshine Center leave with the ability to participate in their environments at their highest potential
