Our Response to COVID-19

We are responding to COVID-19 by temporarily suspending our in-home visits. This is important as it supports social distancing and helps us keep you safe.

We are using teletherapy to provide speech therapy services during this time. We are using the HIPAA compliant interactive Theraplatform to conduct our therapy sessions, and a HIPAA compliant version of Google Meet as a backup if there are any technical difficulties with Theraplatform.

Thank you for your partnership as we work to provide high quality services in a time of uncertainty.

About Joy Opens Doors

Who we are

Joy Opens Doors provides pediatric speech, occupational, and feeding therapy. Our philosophy is summed up in our name: we believe that by tapping into a child’s joy, we can open doors of communication and language.

What we do

We believe in using cutting edge approaches combining naturalistic play with behavioral techniques. This means that we use meaningful play and social connection in a child’s natural environment.  Including your child’s daily routines means faster learning and more comprehensive gains.

Where we work

Joy Opens Doors serves children and their families in Santa Clara, San Mateo, San Francisco, and Alameda counties.

  • DIR Floortime

  • Picture Exchange Communication System
  • Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets
