Occupational Clinicians (OTs) help children acquire (or regain) the skills needed to perform the activities—or “occupations”—of daily life. OTs help children achieve independence and enhance their quality of life. The focus of treatment is to facilitate and empower the child and family to achieve the highest level of functional independence possible. Occupational therapy uses age appropriate daily life play and activities to engage a child and family in the therapeutic process.
Physical Clinicians (PTs) use a variety of treatment techniques to promote strength, balance, coordination, functional motor skills, and much more. Physical therapy works to achieve the most typical and efficient movement and balance for the child’s body. Our clinicians assist children birth to age 21 with mild to severe deficits in gross motor skills. Whether using adaptation or working to strengthen and increase range of motion in body parts, PT’s can help a child achieve greater mobility and independence in their lives.
Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) focus on improving a child’s speech and abilities to understand and express language, including nonverbal language. The goal is to improve overall communication abilities. Communication skills give children the ability to express their basic needs and wants. However, there are several common disorders that may affect these skills. Our clinicians are trained to help you understand what causes communication obstacles and how best to overcome them.
Private Duty Nursing (PDN) allows nurses to work next to our clinicians, ensuring children get an entire team of dedicated medical professionals. We provide care to patients with complex medical needs where care feels best – in the home. Whether it is 24/7 or a few 12 hour shifts per week, our nursing services are available 365 days and nights per year to meet your specific needs. We are committed to working as part of the team of medical professionals involved with your child’s care to coordinate and implement the best possible comprehensive plan of care.
