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.
