Our Story

Our Story

SEED Sessions was the vision of a cross-disciplinary team of people from therapy, education and technology to pediatric rehabilitation who share a passion for connecting with communities across international lines. SEED pods provide support to families, and intervention in their respective disciplines of behavior, education, and speech pathology through a telepractice platform. Telepractice provides our team a means of reaching our global community who we are passionate about addressing the needs of our younger generations with speech, language, behavioral and educational needs. Through a flexible platform and payment model, assessments and interventions can be offered through local providers in India, middle east, and/or through collaboration with our global team in the United States and beyond. We see potential and Ability in a neurodiverse society and set high expectations so our students can develop and grow to their full potential. We are going to reframe the word DISability, to guide a systemic shift in how today’s society perceives people with different Abilities.
