Therapy Services

Pediatric Physical Therapists specialize in treating and caring for patients who are babies, toddlers, children, teenagers and young adults. They treat conditions related to genetic, neurological and orthopedic disorders. Strengthening, stretching and working towards additional movement creates less frustration in children. We are delighted how are children excel every day.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy focuses on helping children develop the skills they need to grow into functional, independent adults. Physical impairment, injuries and a host of other issues can hamper a child’s ability to perform common tasks or progress normally through the stages of social or cognitive development. Our team works towards performance goals, which also encourages self-esteem.

Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) assess, works to prevent, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Social communication disorders occur when a person has trouble with the social use of verbal and nonverbal communication. Our therapists make tremendous strides with children becoming more verbal and communicative which creates
happier children.

Behavior Analysis is the scientific study of behavior. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the application of the principles of learning and motivation from Behavior Analysis, and the procedures and technology derived from those principles, to the solution of problems of social significance. Many decades of research have validated treatments based on ABA. Consistency in having a routine and schedule benefits our children every day. Socialization skills is one of the many skills we instill in our children.
