We want to limit the effects of any physical challenges and help your child reach his or her full potential. That’s why our experts in pediatric physical therapy work with your child to maximize his or her gross motor function (those associated with the large muscle groups and often affect mobility), independence, and fitness.
We specialize in the treatment and management of infants, children, and adolescents with a variety of congenital, developmental, neuromuscular, skeletal, or acquired disorders/diseases that may cause limitation in their lives. We help families and schools maximize their children’s potential and become more independent in meaningful daily activities by using a wide variety of tools and approaches that include but are not limited to self-help skills, home management and safety, feeding, sensory integration, adaptive equipment needs, pre-academic and handwriting legibility, fine motor control/tool use (drawing, cutting, keyboarding, written communication) and visual/perceptual skills. We love what we do and are passionate about the spirited kids, educators and families we work with.
From birth, children learn to communicate in a variety of ways including through eye gazes, gestures and vocalizations. For children who are delayed in their communication skills, intervention can begin at less than one year of age. Improved ability to communicate reduces frustration as children become older. Speech and language therapy helps children improve their communication skills verbally, by using gestures, sign language or the use of augmentative devices. We also equip parents and caregivers to stimulate their child’s communication skills.
Children’s Therapy Services has been providing Speech, Occupational and Physical Therapy services along with Special Education Services to the Western South Dakota region for over 12 years. Our therapists are on the road daily, traveling to multiple schools and Birth to 3/5 programs to ensure that each child receives the services laid forth by IDEA program. We work with children on IFSP and IEP programs hand in hand with the school/preschool special education staff so that the child may receive the services that are needed in order for that student to excel.
CTS will provide direct one on one therapy, group therapy or inclusive classroom therapy for our students depending on the schools needs and the needs of the child. We work closely with the administrative staff to ensure that services are adjusted to fit the needs of each program. We also work hand in hand with the teaching staff and special educators and welcome all feedback from parents regarding their child’s success in therapy.
Children’s Therapy Services is very proud of the relationships that we have developed with numerous schools, communities, families and programs over the past several years. We have a very dedicated staff that enjoy working with children of all ages and in all areas. We understand that education and early learning start at home within the family unit and take care to communicate often with families regarding their child’s success.
