Physical Therapy

Comprehensive gross motor evaluations lead to individualized and specific treatment plans for each child and their situation, including adaptive equipment when needed.  By improving range of motion, strength, flexibility and balance, we assist children in meeting developmental milestones or regaining lost skills after an injury.  We work closely with the family and other care providers to ensure the most complete plan of care is in place for each child.  Our goal is always to improve the lives of children by helping them achieve their highest potential in an environment surrounded by caring therapists and caregivers.

Occupational Therapy

Our outstanding occupational therapists encourage development, independence, and reganilitation through the practice of everyday activities.  We consider the child's whole body and how it contributes to overall functioning, but you will commonly find OTs focusing in on fine motor skills, visual motor and perceptual skills, sensory processing, and self-care skills.  Our overall goal is to help kids participate independently right alongside their peers in any environment, regardless of their level of ability.

Play Therapy

Play therapy utilizes play, children's natural medium of expression, to help them express their feelings more easily through toys instead of words.  Play therapy can help individuals communicate, explore repressed thoughts and emotions, address unresolved trauma, and experience personal growth.  Play therapy is widely viewed as an important, effective, and developmentally appropriate mental health treatment.
