Unrivaled Staff and Resources in Southern Massachusetts
The Founding and Growth of South Shore Therapies
South Shore Therapies began as a concept when Stacey Szklut, MS, OTR/L recognized a great need for high-quality, personalized occupational therapy services on the South Shore of Massachusetts and Cape Cod. The concept became a reality in April 2004 when South Shore Therapies, specializing in sensory integration intervention, opened its doors in Weymouth. In 2006 South Shore Therapies began to provide speech and language services and, shortly thereafter, opened our second site in Pembroke. In 2014 we expanded our speech services to Cohasset, collaborating with Child and Adolescent Health Specialists. Our third full-service clinic opened in 2017 on the Canton/Dedham line.
