What is Pediatric Physical Therapy?
Pediatric physical therapists provide both consultations, evaluations, and treatments for children who are suspected of having or have difficulties with their gross motor skills (i.e. rolling, crawling, sitting, walking, running, jumping), strength, balance, postural control, and coordination. Sessions will address skills identified as areas of concern, facilitate the child to move in the most efficient and effective way, and provide families with the tools and education to best teach and facilitate the needs of their child when therapy is not in session.

Social Work Therapy
What is Social Work?
Our approach to Social Work Therapy is collaborative in nature. This includes families and children in treatment planning and we use a variety of evidence-based therapeutic models, based on the needs of the client. We aim to help families increase their understanding of emotional regulation, enhance feelings of connectedness, and decrease negative behaviors. To achieve this goal, we often incorporate movement, art and play to make sure the child is able to fully participate and benefit from the session. These tools also generalize nicely to the home and school so parents can help integrate what their child is learning in therapy to help them across settings.
