Evaluations

Evaluations assess a child's skills in all areas of concern using a combination of:

  • Parent interview about your child's developmental and medical history

  • Observation of your child engaging in gross motor activities in our therapy gym 

  • Activities to assess joint mobility, muscle strength, coordination, and balance

  • Assessment of your child's ability to engage in age-level gross motor skills (rolling, crawling, walking, climbing, throwing and catching a ball, etc.)

Following the evaluation, we will discuss the results and recommendations. If physical therapy is recommended, we collaborate with parents to develop a plan of treatment and goals. 

Therapy

Our pediatric physical therapy team provides services to support each child's unique physical needs. Therapy often focuses on developing functional skills that allow your child to participate in daily activities at home, school, and throughout the community. Our physical therapy sessions incorporate activities your child will be naturally motivated to participate in, allowing them to build both gross motor skills and confidence. As your child develops increased strength, coordination, endurance, and new motor patterns, our team will take regular data and revise therapy goals as needed. Physical therapy also supports a child's self-help skills, including toileting, dressing, and bathing. Our specialized training includes Primitive Reflex Integration through Neuroplasticity and evidence based assessment and treatment for Torticollis.

Whenever possible, parents are invited to participate in or observe our therapy sessions. Our physical therapists will also dedicate time to connect with parents and provide home practice programs.
