Types of Therapies

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists evaluate and provide intervention to give a child the skill, ability, and confidence to move and explore their environment. From crawling and walking, running and jumping, physical therapy analyzes the strength, movement and coordination needed to participate in all the physical challenges in a child’s world. A child may be delayed in developing these skills or may have lost them due to injury or illness. A physical therapist has the expertise, tools and equipment to get them going.

Think of all the activities that fill a child's day: eating, getting dressed, participating in the routines of home and school life, writing, cutting, drawing, and sports.  An occupational therapist is skilled at analyzing the skills and abilities that make those everyday tasks possible such as coordination, strength, and sensory processing. Whether a child is having difficulty gaining those skills for the first time, or has lost them due to injury or illness, an OT builds the child's confidence and ability to function in their world successfully.
