Our Speech-language pathologists strive to give children the tools needed to communicate effectively. Their aim is to improve a child’s ability to use verbal and non-verbal language. Our Speech Pathologists utilize treatment in expressive and receptive language skills, apraxia, dyslexia, breast and bottle feeding, misarticulations, feeding and swallowing, literacy concerns, and fluency and word retrieval skills.
Physical Therapy Physical therapists are eager to help your child explore the world. They strive to make every session fun, while working on improving strength, flexibility, range of motion, posture, balance, and movement patterns. Areas of focus are coordination, balance, motor planning, sports injuries, sensory processing and reflex integration, toe walking, and executive functioning skills.
Using a play-based approach, our occupational therapists engage your child in activities that develop important sensory processing, motor, behavioral, and thinking skills. Development in these areas improves performance in valued daily activities including dressing, feeding, writing, play, and social participation.
