We believe each of our clients is a star. Star Therapy’s mission is to brighten futures – one star at a time.

The Star Therapy team consists of Licensed Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants, each with extensive experience in working with pediatric clients. We believe in keeping our staff's therapeutic skills and knowledge of best practices at the highest possible level. We fully support staff development through continuing education courses and purchasing of current technology resources.

What sets Star Therapy apart is the passion our team members have for their work they love what they do and the clients they serve. We work collaboratively with the education team members to develop the most comprehensive plan possible for every child with whom we work.

Our team members are also very compassionate and routinely give back to the community by volunteering at shelters, hospitals, schools, Special Olympics, and other organizations. Our organization is a proud supporter of because I said I would, a social movement and non-profit dedicated to the betterment of humanity. Our Vice President, Pete Pruszynski, was also co-leader for a Destination Imagination (DI) team at Crestwood Local Schools and acted as a DI Appraiser at Hiram College.
