Occupational Therapy (OT) focuses on daily occupations. Children's occupations include eating, sleeping and playing. It also includes bathing, grooming and dressing. Children have a role of student and friend. Occupational therapist identify challenges that interfere with a child's daily occupation. They work to improve fine motor and visual motor skills, motor planning, sensory processing and self regulation skills to allow each child to reach their maximum level of independence.
The role of the pediatric physical therapist is to evaluate and provide treatment for delays in motor skills by developing the strength and range of motion that children need to move through their environment easily and effectively.
Gross motor skills are the foundation for development. Deficits may affect speech, handwriting and reading, and social emotional development.
Pediatric counselors are specially trained and licensed to work with children facing a variety of issues and help them cope with and overcome them so that they can achieve their full potential. Children aren't shielded from stress, anxiety, and other issues that many adults need professional help with. Pediatric counselors work with children of all ages with different problems, such as difficulty coping with a past traumatic event, adjusting to divorced parents, feeling excluded, or unwanted by peers, among others.
A speech-language pathologist (SLP) is a highly-trained professional who evaluates and treats children who have difficulty with speech or language. If your child has trouble with speech, he/ she struggles with the “how-to” of talking—the coordination of the muscles and movements necessary to produce speech. If your child has trouble with language, he/she struggles with understanding what he/she hears or sees. Your child may struggle to find the right words and/or organize those words in a meaningful way to communicate a message or hold a conversation
You can start by giving us a call or talking to your child's physician. We will need basic information such as your child's date of birth and your primary concern. All therapies require an order from your child's doctor. We will have you complete an information pack.
