Our Services

We strive to offer services that are dynamic, creative, energetic, and driven by the children and families that we serve.

Occupational Therapy


Children who receive occupational therapy may address areas of play, self-help skills, anger management, gross motor skills, fine motor skills and sensory processing skills.  Occupational therapy works towards meeting the needs of children through their occupation of play. Occupational therapy can assist in maximizing children's abilities in order to best complete daily activities in a variety of settings (home, school, extracurricular activities).

 

Our occupational therapists may incorporate various programs and strategies into treatment sessions, including:

  • Sensory Integration & Processing

  • The Alert Program

  • Pyramid of Potential  

  • Handwriting Without Tears

  • Feeding

  • Functional Vision

Physical Therapy

The focus for children receiving physical therapy is on improving gross motor skills (those that use larger muscle groups and may affect overall function), balance, coordination, strength, range of motion and endurance.  Children with musculoskeletal disorders, developmental delays, cerebral palsy, torticollis, pervasive developmental disorders, and orthopedic injuries are a few of the patients treated by our pediatric physical therapists.  Physical therapists use a variety of treatments to help build strength, improve movement, and enhance skills needed to complete daily activities with greater independence.  

 

While participating in physical therapy, the therapist may guide children through:

  • Developmental activities, such as rolling, crawling, walking, and jumping

  • Adaptive play

  • Balance, motor planning, and coordination activities

  • Flexibility exercises to increase range of motion

  • Training to build strength following an injury

  • Instruction on how to prevent injuries

Speech-Language Pathology


Speech-Language Pathology or "speech therapy" is a service provided to children who experience a speech or language delay.  Speech-Language Pathologists help children learn to use language to communicate their thoughts and feelings.  
They address areas of articulation, fluency, resonance or voice, as well as receptive and expressive language skills (language processing, auditory processing, pragmatics, etc.).

 

Your child may benefit from speech therapy services if he/she has trouble with:

  • Learning to speak

  • Pronouncing words so that others can understand

  • Following directions

  • Remembering information

  • Asking and answering questions

  • Staying on topic

  • Listening and understanding when there is noise in the background

Social Skills

 

The Social Skills Program at The Center for Pediatric Therapy is designed to efficiently combine the benefits of individual therapy with peer-to-peer social interaction.  Our program is comprehensive and provides social opportunities for children ages 2 through teens.  New programs are added or changes may be made within the existing structure (i.e. age levels may shift) based on current needs.  The collaboration among different disciplines involved in this program provides a cohesive, broad-range therapy approach to best address these skills in young children.
