Pediatric Therapy and Learning

Pediatric TLC was opened in 2007 as a collaboration between Allison LeBouef (occupational therapist) and Marsha LeGoullon (speech-language pathologist). Allison and Marsha shared a similar vision for addressing the developmental and educational needs of children in a meaningful, fun, and loving environment. Over the years, their treatment philosophy has evolved to incorporate the best of various developmental models (e.g. Sensory Processing theories, Greenspan’s DIR model, and various others).

Pediatric TLC was well-received in the Acadiana area and grew quickly. In 2011,  our clinic moved to its custom-built, 5000+ sq. ft facility. This new space was specifically designed to enhance and expand our therapeutic and educational services.
