Pediatric Rehabilitation

We specialize in the evaluation, treatment and management of your child’s unique needs. Our child-friendly environment is both stimulating and fun and provides the optimal atmosphere for success.

Pediatric Physical Therapy

With our extensive training in child development and movement, we are equipped to meet your child’s physical needs by enhancing and building upon his or her existing large muscle abilities. This includes making successful transitions from one position to another—such as sitting, four-point contact, kneeling and standing. We also encourage safe and efficient mobility—such as rolling, crawling, walking, running and jumping.

Our ultimate goal is to enhance your child’s overall physical capabilities, help with motor function and development, improve strength and endurance, and support learning and participation.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Our pediatric occupational therapist will address your child’s ability to perform daily activities independently, including play, self-care, school work and exploring his or her environment. Occupational therapy focuses on fine-motor coordination, development of age-appropriate grasp patterns and perceptual/sensory processing.

Pediatric occupational therapy is also beneficial if your child has weak arms or difficulties with arm movement and reaching. In addition, our therapists can provide protective splinting for a child’s hand, wrist or elbow to allow for optimal arm positioning and increase the ability to perform tasks independently.

Pediatric Speech & Language Pathology

Our skilled speech and language pathologist is trained in evaluating, diagnosing and treating a variety of communication and swallowing disorders. Your child’s speech therapy may include the following interventions:

  • Speech — Producing and sequencing sounds
  • Language skills — Understanding and expression through spoken or written language
  • Vocal skills — Using the vocal mechanism in an appropriate manner
  • Auditory training — Learning to hear and interpret auditory information
  • Swallowing — Training oral and pharyngeal muscles to function for safe swallowing

Regular exercise, such as walking, playing tennis, weight lifting, yoga or using a rowing machine can reduce the likelihood of bone fractures in people with osteoporosis.
