What We Offer

Physical Therapy

Pediatric Physical Therapists are specially trained to help children from infancy to adolescence with motor development and function as well as improve strength and endurance to ease the challenges of daily activities. PTs work closely with the family as they both play a vital role in the child’s development.

Occupational Therapy

Pediatric Occupational Therapists help children learn the skills they need to grow into functional adults. Through the different stages from infancy to adulthood the OT helps develop fine motor skills, sensory motor skills and visual motor skills with the ultimate goal of giving them the independence they for socialization and everyday living.

Speech Therapy

Pediatric speech therapy treats communication challenges, both expressive and receptive, that cause children to have difficulty with verbal communication. Speech therapy also treats oral motor concerns, such as chewing and swallowing, as well as articulation, auditory processing and social skills.
