Increase Your

Child's Independence

With Our

Integrated Services

When a new diagnosis is overwhelming, we calm the chaos by providing support within a social environment. Equipping children and their families with expert tools is how we guide everyone towards independence.

You're Not Alone

The Future Can Look
Bright Once More

Walking through a life-altering diagnosis changes everything.
This path can be scary and lonely and the emotional rollercoaster ride can leave you feeling beaten and bruised. With information overload or giant gaps in treatment options, it’s no wonder many of our families feel this way.

With Optimal Beginnings you will finally be part of a community that understands and encourages you, while providing a team to support your child’s varied needs.

“Optimal Beginnings parent coaching program has helped me in coming up with a plan. They take my questions and coach me, and we work together as a team to apply to my child’s daily life. ”
– Haimi
