Pediatric Physical Therapy
Physical therapy focuses on a child’s ability to participate in daily activities and routines in their home, school and community by addressing physical challenges. Pediatric Physical therapy services address gross motor development and coordination, environmental exploration, play skills, orthopedic and neurological development, self-help strategies, and sensory function.
We offer the following pediatric physical therapy services:
- Assessment of Footwear and Orthotics
- Private Insurance and Cash Pay Services
- School-Based Services
Pediatric Physical therapists perform evaluations, plan and implement treatment strategies and developmentally appropriate activities, identify appropriate assistive devices and durable medical equipment, and create solutions for barriers that limit interaction with their environment and peers in family-, learning-, and community-based activities.
For further information regarding physical therapy, please visit the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) website. APTA is the professional organization for physical therapists.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy
The ultimate goal of an Occupational Therapist is to increase independence in Activities of Daily Living (ADL). In doing so, the therapist addresses a broad number of challenges, including social-emotional, physical, cognitive, communication, and adaptive behavior challenges. Pediatric occupational therapy services, more specifically, focus on addressing feeding skills, perceptual and sensory processing, fine motor development, environmental exploration, play skills, and psychosocial skills.
Pediatric occupational therapists perform evaluations, plan and implement treatment strategies and developmentally appropriate activities, decrease environmental barriers that limit participation in family, learning, and community based activities, and identify appropriate assistive technology.
