Pediatric occupational therapy focuses on helping children develop the skills they need to grow into functional, independent adults. We enhance the child’s ability to perform tasks or progress normally through the stages of social or cognitive development. We help children reach maturity with strength and confidence.
Pediatric physical therapy helps evaluate and provide treatment for delays in motor skills by developing the strength and range of motion that children need to move through their environment easily and effectively. We focus on helping children move their bodies how and when they want to the best of their abilities.
Pediatric speech therapy helps children communicate effectively by assisting with the improvement of their verbal and non-verbal language skills. We also help with things like feeding and swallowing abilities. We specialize in evaluating and treating speech, language, oral motor and feeding disorders
