Physical Therapy

Physical therapists address functional limitations and gross motor skills. Treatments focus on increasing strength, range of motion and flexibility through an individualized program of therapeutic exercise, therapeutic activity, and functional training. Programs can include balance activities, gait training and working toward age appropriate skills.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists focus on fine motor skills (in manipulative dexterity and handwriting), increasing independence with self-care, and learning to self-regulate (i.e., learning to control behavior in order to focus on a single task, move from one activity to another without difficulty, cope with sensory overload, etc.). We offer therapists with specialty training in sensory integration as well as therapists with advanced training in feeding of the "problem eater," including therapists who treat infants feeding from breast or bottle.  

Speech-Language Therapy

Speech-language therapists provide services for children with speech and language delays. Therapists can address impairments in speech production, language comprehension, language expression, and feeding and swallowing. Treatments include working with children of all ages to improve ability to produce sounds correctly, understand and use language, speak fluently, and eat and swallow efficiently and safely.
