Occupational Therapy

The therapeutic use of self-care, work and play activities increases independent function, enhance development and prevent disability. Since the work of children is play, it is used in creative and innovative ways by occupational therapists to assist children in learning life skills. Concerns often addressed by pediatric occupational therapists include self-care skills (feeding, bathing, and dressing), fine motor skills (hand skills and dexterity), neuromotor development, sensory integration and upper body and core strengthening, play skills. Therapy enhances the potential of a child throughout their developmental years and builds skills, selfconfidence and self-esteem that lasts a lifetime. Our therapists utilize a variety of opportunities to practice these skills such as Hippotherapy, aquatics, NDT, E-stim, animal assisted therapy and much more.

Physical Therapy

This specialty deals with the wide variety of diagnoses that may affect a child’s overall development from 0 to 18 years of age. Depending on the age, disability and setting, the role of the pediatric physical therapist differs greatly. Pediatric physical therapists help ensure a child’s physical performance in day to day activities is maximized.

Therapists implement their expert knowledge of the neurological, gross motor development, balance reactions, musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, and integumentary systems to help the child develop and thrive within his or her environment.

Speech

Speech and language pathologists work with children with a wide range of diagnoses. Speech therapists address such issues as articulation, language, problem-solving and sequencing, apraxia, social skills training, feeding, oral-motor strengthening and awareness. Therapists are able to provide therapy within the home, community or ranch. Speech and language can make a powerful difference in the lives of children with difficulties expressing their emotions, needs, and ability to engage in peer social relationships.
