Dr. Maria Sarabok founded STARS with a clear idea of what she deemed as a need in the community. After Practicing pediatric physical therapy for over 10 years, Dr. Sarabok noticed a shift in Early Intervention services in the state of New York. Many children in need of services were either being underserved or denied services altogether. Maria has found that many pre-school and school aged children often need private supplemental services to address needs that are not being met by “school based therapy programs”.
In addition, Maria also wanted to have a space to provide group motor classes for children of all ages and to offer parent/caregiver workshops. Opening her own center fit all of these needs and she looks forward to having a constantly growing and evolving center to meet the needs of the community and its members.
