Our Mission Statement

Performance Pediatrics strives to assure a positive, child-friendly, family- based center servicing Sussex, Morris, Warren, and Passaic counties in NJ. Our mission is to give each child that comes through Performance Pediatrics doors the best of our experience and attitude that will help maximize their function and independence in school and home. We work at giving the parents empathy, understanding, and the knowledge to help their kids, believe in their abilities, and achieve goals. At Performance Pediatrics, we believe in treating the whole child to individually meet each child’s unique and special needs.  We strongly believe that ALL children have the ability to grow, learn, and develop and it is just a matter of tapping and discovering “how” they learn “best,” believing in them, and providing the “just right” guidance along the way.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality of therapy to children and their families, with new and current evidence-based research and clinical experience.  We strive to be on top of the latest programs available that will help children with and without special needs, as well as, to maintain the highest level of education and professionalism in our field.

TESTIMONIALS

There is no greater work than the work of caring for our children. From the moment we started OT at performance pediatrics, the staff have been a blessing! They are the most educated group of therapists that I have had the honor and pleasure helping my grandson. If the world was filled with more people like each one of the therapists at performance, especially Ms. Melissa and Ms. Davina, what a joyful world we would be in. Thank you all for all that you do. We love you all!

At Performance pediatrics, you have access to the highest level of care in Sussex and Passaic county. We have always felt the staff has been open and accommodating to our financial obligations. Our children have received individual care with focus on their needs. When their abilities have changed, the open communication has helped transition the plan to be most beneficial to our children. Whether changing therapy times or identifying new and/or different approaches to help my sons identify their needs for sensory input. We are very grateful we found the team and family in performance pediatrics!

-Holly C.

I’m incredibly happy with performance pediatrics. The therapists are friendly, helpful, and very professional. My son LOVES going to his sessions every week. I have noticed he has become strong as a result of attending. He is excited to tell me what he has done after his sessions and is so proud to tell his friends and family about Melissa. Performance pediatrics has a true family feel, and I love how welcoming and warm everyone always is!
