Formulating comprehensive and powerful, yet practical, plans

Occupational therapy (OT) treatment focuses on helping people with a physical,

sensory, or cognitive disability be as independent as possible in all areas of their lives. OT can help children with various needs improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills.  OT’s look to  enhance children’s self-esteem and sense of accomplishment by addressing motor skills, visual-perceptual skills, cognitive skills, and sensory-processing deficits.

Speech therapy (ST) therapy work on feeding, speech, fluency and articulation with the desired outcome of the child being able to successfully eat, speak and articulate.  Speech therapist use their varied skill sets to promote success and independence through exercises and practice.

Physical therapy (PT) works on ambulation, deals with pain, strength, joint range of motion, endurance, and gross motor skills. They use their expertise in movement and apply clinical reasoning through the process of examination, evaluation, diagnosis, and intervention.  They work with each child to help them reach their fullest potential in functioning independently within their daily lives.

Developmental therapy (DT) understand the complex nature of child development during the 0-5 year period. They are trained to recognize deviance from that progression in any area of development; to comprehend the developmental importance of specific skills and the influence of those skills on other skills and to minimize a child's functional limitations by designing, implementing, and modifying therapeutic interventions for the child and the family.
