Children are not little adults, but are individuals who are constantly developing. Sometimes the normal development process can be delayed by a variety of factors which require skilled evaluation and therapeutic intervention. We work with children from birth through 21 years of age. Our staff develops and delivers treatment plans based upon evaluation of emerging functional skills and seeks to build upon a child’s strengths.

The main components of our service include pediatric Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech Language Pathology. A comprehensive team approach, involving these and other professional disciplines, is used in the program’s 2 specialty clinics.
