"To Ms. Tina, Ms. Joan, Ms. Karen and the entire staff at Tender Age! Our family can’t thank you enough for the amazing experience we have had since joining your team a year ago. Before Tender Age, we struggled to get Stephen in the car to attend therapy. After his first visit to see your gym, Stephen couldn’t wait to return and immediately started calling it “Ms. Angela’s Gym” because of the warm welcome we received. The entire staff goes above and beyond. Because of Stephen’s positive experience, it has had a significant impact on his progress. He looks forward to each and every therapy session and as an added bonus, it’s quite pleasant for the grownups in the waiting area! Everyone is so friendly; it is truly like one big happy family!
Thank you to everyone for your kindness and support and we are happy to be part of the Tender Age family!"
"My son Troy has been getting services at Tender Age PT since 2006; at the time he was 13 years old. He was the first child to receive services at their new center. This year, at age 21 Troy is graduating and starting a new chapter in his life. Troy was diagnosed with Autism at age 3 and Apraxia at age 13. Without the services provided by the incredible staff at Tender Age PT, I truly feel that Troy would not be the young man he is today. He wasn’t always the easiest to work with; at times very behavioral. Everyone at the agency was patient, kind and supportive to the entire family.
Their professionalism, creativity and determination assisted Troy to work thru many challenges. I asked Troy if there was anything else that he would like to add; he told me that he wanted to let everyone know that he is grateful for their hard work. Our family is eternally grateful to this agency and their staff."

"We’ve been a part of the Tender Age family for over a year now. The office staff is warm and welcoming. The therapists are knowledgable, caring, and accommodating. I’ve been able to watch my daughter grow and progress while learning along the way how I can help her at home. I would highly recommend Tender Age to any family!"
"We were told my son would never walk. We were told my son might never be able to say “I love you.” We were told he would need a feeding tube, as well as several other crucial surgeries in his lifetime, just to sustain a meager existence. We were not given hope. That is, until we met the staff and therapists of Tender Age! The staff and therapists of Tender Age are miracle workers! Today, my son plays video games (Fortnight, Madden), has lots of friends, plays on several adaptive teams and won medals in the special Olympics. P.S. he never shuts up, and he LOVES eating! I can never thank Tender Age enough!"
"We’ve been coming to Tender Age PT for years. I came also with my daughter and now with my son and I love this place. It’s always clean, the staff is wonderful. They have patience with my son and make him feel at home. It’s wonderful to have a place like this for my kids. Thank you for the good service Tender Age staff."
"Going to group at Tender Age was such a wonderful experience. The therapists were so wonderful with the kids, and also supportive of the parents. I can't thank you all enough!"
“I could not be happier with our experience at Tender Age Pediatric Therapies! The staff and therapists truly care about the children and it shows in all they do! I appreciate the time and patience each therapist takes with my daughter and going the extra mile to educate me on strategies to carry over at home. Since my daughter began services as Tender Age 2 years ago, we have seen a tremendous positive change in her physical and cognitive development. I am grateful for everything that Tender Age Pediatric Therapies has done to help my daughter reach her greatest potential.”
"Tender Age is wonderful. My son has grown so much since we started here. We love the staff."
"Our son started Tender Age only in January and the progress he has made is incredible! Karen and Tina are wonderful. So patient, caring and really strive for the best. My son loves coming here and as parents we love the environment he is in. Lori and Angela are wonderful too they are supportive and honest and great listeners. I would highly recommend Tender Age for anyone looking for a place for their child to grow and get all of the services they need to better their future!"
“Dear Ellen and Lori,
Almost 3 years ago we started with Tender Age PT when our son was born with Down Syndrome. I was given a list to choose an El agency and -knowing nothing-chose Tender Age, mainly because it sounded nice! Now, three years on as we prepare for transition to preschool, I wanted to let you know that if given the opportunity to do it all over again, I would not change one thing. The group of women who have been in our lives over the past years have been nothing short of angels. Capable and loving with just the right mix of discipline and tenderness, these women have not just given us hope for our son's future, but made us excited for it! This was not necessarily the case in those early days when I will admit to crying on Roberta Staebler on more than one occasion!
While we are excited to see our son move on to preschool in the fall, we are having a hard time imagining our lives without the therapists and teachers and coordinators we have come to consider part of our family. We just wanted to let you know that we have been so happy with the "dream team" you assembled for us:
SEIT -Roberta Staebler
PT -Lisa Giaccone
ST - Sharda Dunne
OT - Rosemary Nirenberg
OSC - Robin Cullinan”
With SO much thanks, J&S"
