Occupational Therapists help children improve their ability to perform everyday tasks. They evaluate and treat individuals from infancy through adolescence. Therapy consists of the acquisition of developmental milestones through gross & fine motor play, development of self-care abilities, social skills, oral motor, sensory integrative development and more.
Physical Therapists provide services that help children birth through adolescence restore function, reach motor milestones, prevent/limit permanent physical disabilities, and improve mobility and strength. They focus on the evaluation and treatment of children with health problems resulting from injury, disease, or congenital conditions, with an emphasis on movement dysfunction.
Speech Pathologists help children develop and improve language, communication, cognitive processing, and social skills. They evaluate and treat children of all ages with disorders ranging from mild delays in development to severe communication delays and syndromes. Treatment can be one-on-one or in groups and may involve augmentative technology or be facilitated with the use of sensory equipment. All therapies incorporate play and motivating activities with the goal of the functional use of communication skills in the child’s everyday environments.
