Pediatric and adult therapy services:
Occupational therapy is a holistic blend of mental, physical, and psychological exercises which enable patients to perform everyday activities. For children, this looks like aiding them in improving fine motor control for dressing or handwriting or developing balance and bilateral coordination for playing on the playground or catching a ball. For adults, this means assisting them in finding a life balance or decreasing anxiety or physical pain from an injury or disability.
The goals of physical therapy are to develop movement, decrease pain, and to enhance physical functioning. In a pediatric setting, this looks like improving a child's strength, ROM, flexibility, or movement pattern in order to make everyday activities easier. Pediatric PT's are trained at making each session fun and to feel more like play than therapy
Speech therapy is used to improve communication in several areas. Some of them being receptive, or how we understand language, expressive, which is the difficulty of putting words together, and cognitive communication disorders, which include abilities to impact speaking such as executive functioning, attention, or problem solving. Speech therapy can also include treatment such as feeding/swallowing.
?Sensory Integration is the way that our senses interact with the world around us. Sometimes our systems have a difficult time interpreting sensory input, particularly in young children. This can look like a child who will not eat certain textures, who will not wear certain clothing, covers ears or cries when he or she hears a loud noise, or is afraid of climbing too high on the playground. Our trained Sensory Integration therapists are able to identify the areas that are impacting your child's life and incorporate interventions to enhance their ability to engage with the world around them.
