We offer the following types of pediatric therapy…
Occupational Therapy: Therapeutic use of work, self-care, and play activities to increase independent function, enhance development, and prevent disability.
Physical Therapy: Habilitation and rehabilitation concerned with restoration of activity and prevention of disability, with use of a variety of modalities to achieve these purposes.
Speech/Language Therapy: Diagnosis, treatment, and remediation of receptive/expressive speech and language; oral motor deficits; and feeding problems.
Specialized treatment techniques and services provided include:
Neuro-developmental Treatment (NDT): Use of a variety of hands-on techniques to enhance voluntary movement against gravity and facilitate rotational patterns and equilibrium responses in order to promote more complex skilled movement.
Sensory Integration: The enhancement of a child's ability to take in sensory information from the environment and perform with an appropriate adaptive response.
Therapeutic Listening: The use of filtered or electronically altered music (in combination with a variety of other treatment techniques) to promote integration and organization of attention, behavior, and movement. Typically, those who benefit most, have difficulty with modulation, self-regulation, body-in-space, and/or body awareness.
Interactive Metronome: A computer based technology that enables individuals to directly exercise and improve the processes of motor planning and sequencing, which can affect learning, attention, and sensory integration.
Feeding Therapy: Use of oral-motor/feeding techniques designed to strengthen and facilitate mature jaw and tongue movements for mastication and motility of food/liquid in the mouth as well as to increase the tolerance for a variety of food/liquid intake.
Myofacial Release: A safe, effective, gentle hands on technique designed to decrease pain, decrease restrictions and increase range of motion.
Wilbarger Protocol: A deep pressure and proprioceptive technique designed by Patricia Wilbarger to address sensory defensiveness as part of a sensory diet.
Handwriting Without Tears: A specific handwriting curriculum that combines mulit-sensory input and teaching methods aimed at developing legible and fluid handwriting.
