As of March 18th, 2020, Fundamental Kids Therapy has transitioned all services to telehealth in order to protect our clients, staff, their families, and the communities we serve. We support a varienty of video conferencing systems, including Zoom, Facetime, Skype, and Microsoft Teams. Even though there may be an adjustment period for your child as we switch to telehealth services, we have extensive experience with telehealth as well as providing effective therapy to kids in a wide variety of environments. Rest assured that we will continue to provide your child and family the best possible service! Read below to learn some benefits of telehealth services.
The novel coronavirus presents the greatest threat to senior citizens and individuals with pre-existing health conditions, but it is becomming increasingly clear that no age group is completely safe from the disease. There is still much that scientists and researchers need to learn about Covid-19, about why it affects people so differently, and about how to prevent, treat, and hopefully cure the disease someday. Some of our clients have weakened immune systems and other risk factors, as do family members of clients and staff. Until we have more answers to these questions, Fundamental Kids Therapy--and the healthcare industry as a whole--will continue to function very differently than it has in the past. Some aspects of healthcare may be changed forever, but it's too soon to know exactly what that will look like and when it will normalize.
Our top priority is the health and safety of our clients, staff, their families, and the communities we serve.
Fundamental Kids Therapy is fortunate to be one of the few speech and occupational therapy clinics in Minnesota with on-site 3d printing capapbilities. We normally use 3d printing to create custom tools, devices, and incentives in support of speech and occupational therapy. We are now also providing 3d printed face-shield holders to healthcare providers in the community. If you are a Minnesota healthcare provider or facility and have a need for 3d printed face-shield holders, please let us know using the contact form at the bottom of this page and we can discuss ways we might be able to help you.
We are a Minnesota based pediatric Speech-Language Pathology and Occupational Therapy clinic, with innovative, evidence-based techniques to help your child or loved one get the most out of speech and occupational therapy.
A fuller, happier life for children of all ages and abilities!
We only hire the best! Our staff members are the most talented, passionate, creative, and dedicated therapists around. But more importantly, we love working with children! We understand the unique challenges and rewards of raising a child with special needs, and we are deeply committed to making life better for kids, parents, and families.
All of our Speech Language Pathologists and Occupational Therapists have Master's degrees, are nationally certified with the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) or the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), and hold Minnesota professional licenses.
Telehealth services allow us to provide therapy in a familiar environment, like home, daycare, or preschool. No waiting in waiting rooms; no loading up the car and driving throught traffic; just dial up and go!
Kids are often more confident and comfortable at home. Providing therapy in a familiar setting allows us to design treatment strategies tailored to your child's needs, strengths, interests, and personality.
We make therapy fun! Even over video-chat, our therapists utilize play to carry out child-centered and family-friendly interventions. Your child will look forward to their therapy time each week!
Fundamental Kids Therapy provides individualized speech, language, occupational, and social skills therapy to children of all ages and abilities.

We design therapy programs tailored to each child's individual strengths, difficulties, interests, and personality. We regularly collaborate with your child's school, physicians, and related service professionals.
Julie is amazing! I never would have thought a speech therapist could
be as good as she is. She's super on the ball and my daughter just
loves her. Julie makes everything very fun for my daughter.
You are the best speech therapist in the whole wide world!
A skilled, creative therapist like Julie can really have an impact on a child's speech progress. Julie has
helped our son make great improvements - and I really appreciate that she teaches us what to do at home to
continue the progress. She makes the sessions fun, and our son looks forward to them each week.
She plays with me and gives me toys. She helps me learn.
Julie makes speech fun and exciting for my daughter. Every time Julie knocks on the door my daughter jumps
for joy. Julie has amazing skills to engage my daughter in different tasks during her session and provide me
with clear feedback about her progress. Best of all, my daughter’s speech has been improving greatly!
My son was having some difficulty talking so I contacted Fundamental Kids Therapy. I am so glad I did! They were informative, friendly, and knowledgeable. My son loves working on his sounds and is making impressive gains. Many of our friends and relatives have made comments about his speech. I highly recommend Fundamental Kids Therapy!
