At Forward Therapy Solutions—it’s our goal to help your child achieve their greatest potential.
Committed to providing high quality, outcome-oriented services to children and families, we use a whole child/whole family approach, incorporating evidenced based strategies along with deep expertise. Working alongside the families we serve—we empower parents by helping them understand their child’s development and unique needs.
We come to you, meeting you in your home or community setting that is typical for your child and family. In other words, where life happens! We travel within a 20 mile radius of Fargo-Moorhead and offer Telehealth visits to any resident of ND and MN.
Individualized & Collaborative
We work with you, your child and any others involved in your child’s care—to guide you in strategies that support your child’s individual needs.
Developmental & Relationship Based
Our expertise in child development drives our assessments, treatment, home programming, recommendations and parent collaborative coaching — understanding that relationships are key to a child’s healthy development and learning.
“My son J has worked with Sharon for over six years. J has right side weakness due a stroke before birth.
Sharon came into our life when we needed her most. Sharon taught J so many valuable skills to help make “righty” stronger, but she also guided our family. While she was teaching J, she also was showing us the skills and how we could continue working with him at home. She would always find a way to make therapy fun.
J has come so far in 6 years to sit back and reflect it’s just amazing to see all of the growth he has made. I highly recommend Sharon to any family looking for OT services.”
J’s Mom and Dad
“Our family first started working with Sharon when our daughter was about five months old.
We had just received a rare diagnosis for her and weren’t sure what to expect for her. Our daughter struggles with fine motor skills, sensory issues and various other delays. Sharon helped her to become independent with her dressing, provided tools so she can understand her emotions and helped with her academics such writing, colors, letters and numbers. Not only did she help our daughter, but she also listened to our concerns. She would come up with ideas to try and would continue until we found something that would work for us as a family.
Throughout our 10 years of working with Sharon we developed a great family relationship. We are so happy we made the choice to have our daughter in OT. I truly believe she would not be where she is today without all the hard work and effort Sharon put into working with our daughter!”
“Sharon was so amazing with my son and we are forever grateful for all that she did!
Sharon provided so many helpful tips and strategies for us to implement at home and out in the community. She was willing to meet us out in the community as well as go to his daycare and provide recommendations to help him be successful in all of his environments. C came so far in the time that Sharon saw him and we are so thankful she was able to work with him!”
Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.Fred Rogers
