Physical Therapy facilitates the development of gross motor skills- crawling, walking, running and higher level physical activities. We provide therapeutic intervention for adaptive equipment assessment, including wheelchair, splint fabrications, and collaborate with local orthotists as needed.
Occupational Therapy addresses fine motor, visual perception, sensory and organizational skills for children. Occupational therapy helps maximize a child's functional performance for daily activities. These activities include play, self care and school related tasks.
Speech Therapy helps children with communication disorders such as language development, articulation, fluency, voice pragmatics, swallowing and feeding. Our speech-language pathologists also see children with habits, coughs and vocal cord disfunction.
We offer a variety of services to optimize the functional potential of our patients. Our equipment is specialized for a variety of medical issues that may be affecting a child's development.
