Specially trained to work with infants, children, and adolescents, our comprehensive, multidisciplinary program focuses on developmental challenges.
Our occupational therapists address fine motor, visual-perceptual, sensory, and organizational skills to help children maximize their performance for daily activities such as play, self-care, and school activities.
Our physical therapists facilitate the development of children's gross motor skills such as crawling, walking, and running for those with orthopedic, rheumatoid, and neurologic diagnoses, while also working on motor planning and range of motion.
