Pediatric Comprehensive Outpatient Rehabilitation Services focus on many childhood disorders such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, traumatic brain injury, torticollis, brachial plexus injuries, stroke (CVA), apraxia, orthopedic injuries, sensory processing disorder, and autism and Asperger’s syndrome.
We offer a quality, interdisciplinary approach to treating newborns through adolescents in need of development and/or rehabilitation services and offer comprehensive evaluations based on the child’s needs and the concerns of their parents and physicians.
Our occupational therapists treat children of all ages, beginning with early infancy, working to improve their range of motion, strength, gross and fine motor skills, coordination, visual motor and perceptual skills, sensory processing, social skills, cognitive skills, and self care skills to promote the progression of normal development. Our play-based approach uses the child’s strengths to address their deficits and increase their ability to participate in daily living activities, play and school. We work closely with the family and physician to maximize the child’s performance in all areas.
We have a therapist certified in the administration and interpretation of the Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT).
Our physical therapists also work with children to improve their range of motion; strength; gross and fine motor skills; coordination; visual motor and perceptual skills; sensory processing; social skills, cognitive skills, and self care skills. Working closely with the family and physician, they maximize a child’s strengths to enhance their participation in daily living activities, play and school.
