  • Long Island City's Pediatric Sensory Gym

      Theraplay LIC is a new state-of-the-art pediatric sensory gym located in Long Island City, Queens, New York.
       
      Theraplay is a specialized sensory gym and therapy clinic providing pediatric physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and play therapy. We believe that all children are unique and deserve a treatment plan that is specific to their individual needs using fun and play to facilitate function and progress.
       

      Theraplay was created to offer a unique, fun and professional treatment space outside of the standard in-school therapy sessions. We offer an interactive play space that caters to all children and their parents.

       

      Your child’s senses will be stimulated by our specialized play equipment. Our innovative play equipment includes 12-foot climbing walls with rope pulls, a giant ball pit to “crash” into, multiple rotary and linear swing attachments with varied swings, monkey bars, zip lines, tunnels, trapeze bars and rings, as well as ladders with varied rungs and a scooter ramp complete with rope pulls. But the highlight of our sensory gym is a a special two story castle play structure complete with fine motor areas where your child can learn increasingly more complex tasks. Our castle includes a laser kaleidoscope for visual stimulation, stairs to climb, a slide and many windows and doors to open, close and peek through!
