Pediatric Therapy

Also known as: Pediatric physical therapy, Pediatric Occupational Therapy, Pediatric Speech Therapy

Our multidisciplinary approach to pediatric occupational, physical and speech therapies offers a unique advantage to the children we treat. The therapies offer a variety of evidence based treatment options and specialty interventions including:

  • Early intervention
  • Neurodevelopmental treatment
  • Ankle-foot orthotic evaluation
  • Feeding therapies
  • Videofluoroscopic swallowing studies in diagnostic imaging
  • Treatment of torticollis and plagiocephaly
  • Wheelchair and equipment evaluations
  • Modification of wedges for babies with reflux

Developmental testing

We use standardized tests to determine whether your child is developing on schedule with language and movement. We are able to tailor these evaluations to individual needs as well. We use this testing to help develop goal areas and a treatment plan.

Some of the assessments and treatments we offer include:
