Occupational therapy can help children succeed in meeting their daily occupations of childhood.
The occupation, or job, of a child is to play, engage in schooling/educational tasks, and maintain their own bodies. Our occupational therapy services address sensory processing and integration difficulties, motor coordination and perceptual difficulties to help children develop the foundations they need to successful with the occupations of childhood: school, play and self-help skills.
Speech and language therapy can help children learn to communicate and engage in the word around them more effectively and comfortably.
Our speech and language services address developing language skills, articulation, reading difficulties, executive functioning, social skills, establishing augmentative and alternate form of communication, feeding, and fluency. Additionally, some of our therapists are trained to provide orofacial myofunctional therapy, addressing tethered oral tissues (e.g. tongue or lip ties) and other differences in oral-motor, sleep, and breathing patterns.
Physical therapy can help children learn how to advance their gross motor skills and improve their ability to navigate and explore their environment.
Physical therapy can assist infants in working toward acquisition of age appropriate gross motor milestones such as tummy time, crawling, and walking. Infants can also benefit from services addressing plagiocephaly and torticollis. For older children, physical therapy can support the advancement of gross motor skills (such as hopping and skipping, running and walking patterns), endurance, and environmental navigation, including use of assistive devices, clearing obstacles, and stair navigation.
