19 Years of Serving Colorado
Handprints was founded in 2001 with the intention of connecting clinicians who share the vision of providing therapy services within an atmosphere of teamwork and collaboration. In 2012, Handprints became accredited and licensed as a Home Health Agency and expanded to provide a full range of pediatric home health services including OT, PT, SLP, and Nursing.
In 2016, Handprints expanded its services with the addition of Handprints Behavioral Therapy. Handprints is excited about the addition of behavioral therapy services, as we now have a dynamic multi-disciplinary team of professionals working together and sharing their expertise to foster the best possible outcomes for our clients.
