Polliwog is a Smart Start program operated by Thompson that provides therapies for children in Mecklenburg County who need special supports/behavior modification during the critical early childhood years at a critical time from birth to ages 3-5 (just prior to kindergarten).

The program is geared toward children who cannot otherwise access a range of developmental therapies. Child centered behavioral intervention, speech-language, physical and occupational therapies will be offered. 


Group instruction, classroom observations and technical assistance will also be provided to families and caregivers, directors, teachers and family child care home providers.

We accept health insurance and Medicaid for therapy services. Behavior support is free to all, but specialized therapies are provided for a fee.  We have the sliding fee scale for those who qualify.
