Pediatric Occupational Therapy uses playful and engaging activities to help a child fully participate in daily life. These everyday activities are called activities of daily living. The Therapedia OT team can also address medical, motor, sensory or behavioral issues related to feeding. Occupational Therapists help children achieve milestones such as self-feeding, dressing, reading, writing, playing with toys, interacting with peers and playing in multiple types of environments.
Pediatric Physical Therapists find just the right challenge to help children fully move, navigate, explore and interact within their environment. Physical Therapists promote independence and increase participation by helping children achieve developmental milestones such as sitting up, crawling, walking, and throwing a ball. Physical therapy can help children improve in the areas of balance, range of motion, coordination, strength, endurance, and gait.
Pediatric Speech Therapy uses creative and meaningful activities to help a child fully communicate and understand language. Additionally, Speech therapists at Therapedia address feeding and swallowing concerns. Speech-language pathologists (speech therapists) help children achieve milestones such as gesturing, speaking, understanding language, reading, understanding facial expressions, playing with toys, and interacting with peers.
