Our vision is to help children regain or develop functional abilities to keep them as safe and independent as possible. In order to do so, our services include the following:
A child’s primary occupation is “playing,” which is essential to healthy neurological development, learning, enhancing self-esteem, and cultivating a sense of accomplishment. Our occupational therapist is a developmental specialist who helps a child to improve his/her strength, coordination, and the skills necessary for daily tasks, including feeding and utensil use, playing, self-care (i.e.: dressing and hygiene), sensory integration, social skills, and developmental motor milestones.
Pediatric physical therapy involves the evaluation and treatment of infants, toddlers, and children. Our pediatric physical therapy focuses on helping children improve gross motor coordination and neuromuscular or musculoskeletal issues, such as having better balance, coordination, endurance, flexibility, and strength. Our physical therapists also evaluate and treat disorders that affect a child’s neurological function and their ability to move about in the environment, such as crawling, rolling, sitting, walking, running, and jumping.
Speech & Language Therapy
Speech & language therapy provides life-changing treatments, support, and care for children and adults who have difficulties with communication, hearing processing, or with eating, drinking and swallowing.
