- Pediatric physical therapists work with children and their families to improve a child’s ability to move safely and independently in their home, school, and community.
We help infants learn gross motor skills such as rolling, sitting, crawling, and walking. We treat torticollis, positional plagiocephaly, low muscle tone, and gross motor delays.
We work with toddlers and older children to help improve strength, balance, and coordination so they can learn to run, jump, safely go up and downstairs, and learn to catch and throw balls. So they can participate to the best of their ability with siblings, family members, and peers.
We also work with children with a variety of injuries and illnesses. These include concussion, broken bones, sprains, autism, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and any other diagnoses interfering with a child’s ability to move and function independently.
- Pediatric occupational therapists promote participation in the areas of play, school, and daily activities. We evaluate and treat a child's fine motor, visual-motor integration, visual perceptual, sensory integration, self-care, cognition, and oral motor/feeding skills. We treat a variety of diagnoses, including Autism, Down Syndrome, developmental delay, sensory processing disorder, cerebral palsy, and fine motor delays.
- At the Pediatric Therapy Center, your child will receive an individualized evaluation and treatment plan designed to address problems related to speech, language, voice, fluency, and oral feeding/swallowing disorders. The goal of speech therapy is to improve a child’s skills so that he or she can communicate more effectively with an equally important goal of improving oral motor skills and swallowing function.
