Pediatric Occupational & Speech Therapy for Children!
Child Directed and Family Centered Approach to Pediatric Therapy
Children learn and develop through sensory rich experiences of play and movement. We specialize in a whole child approach to promoting the development of skills needed for a child to participate in their daily “occupations.” Occupational Therapy will help your child be more independent with play, self-help, and social skills. Speech Therapy helps your child to speak, understand and socialize with family and friends. Feeding Therapy is used to determine what interventions and professionals can help to improve your child’s food intake.
Therapy sessions provide individualized treatment so your child can acquire the skills to develop and learn. We believe that child directed therapy and family participation creates the greatest impact.
