Coastal Kids Therapy was founded by sisters, Laurel Thornton and Blair Kutrow who have family ties to and fond memories of visiting their grand parents in Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach. "We are opening Coastal Kids Therapy to fulfill Laurel's dream of bringing her passion for helping children achieve their full potential to a place we both love." Laurel and Blair
At Coastal Kids Therapy we provide state-of-the-art therapy in a warm and positive environment celebrating the individuality of every child while helping each to reach his or her full potential. We believe in the value of families as integral to each child's progress.
With a focus on sensory processing as the basis for all development, our therapy services address fine motor, gross motor and visual motor skills as they relate to the daily childhood "occupations" of play, self-care and learning.
Coastal Kids Therapy provides a fun, playful, and nurturing atmosphere in which the therapist/child relationship is vital.
