Our goal of therapy is to help infants, children and teens to:

  • Make a full recovery or return to their previous level of function.
  • Learn to work within their functional limitations to become as independent as possible in age appropriate, everyday activities.
  • To enhance the quality of a child’s life by improving their ability to communicate with their family and peers.

How are services completed:

  • Assess children’s development and learning needs.
  • Gather input from parents/caregivers.
  • Select goals based on assessment, caregiver input and functional necessity.
  • Provide strategies to help the child be able to engage in everyday activities.
  • Use purposeful activity and age appropriate play to minimize the effects of disease, injury, congenital deficits and developmental delays while maximizing age appropriate motor skills.
  • Develop a treatment program specifically for each child using fun and stimulating activities in a 1-on-1 session.
  • Help with environmental changes that may be limiting the child’s ability to participate in family, learning, and community activities.
  • Assess need for adaptive techniques or assistive technology and supports for success.
