The program boosts the potential of children who are at risk or currently experiencing developmental delays.
Physical Therapy Our experienced and licensed physical therapists use exercise, assistive devices and proven techniques to help preserve, develop and restore physical function due to injury, disease, or congenital problems.
Occupational Therapy Occupational therapy focuses on developing the ability to perform every day activities such as dressing, feeding, or bathing. Our experienced and licensed physical therapists develop fine motor skills and underlying sensory motor skills through exercise, therapeutic play, assistive devices and special, caring techniques that promote independence in self-care, school, work and play.
Speech Therapy Speech therapy helps improve or restore communication skills or swallowing capabilities affected by injury, disease, or congenital problems. In addition, our speech therapists work with children who cannot rely on speech or hearing as a form of communication. Speech therapy is available in both English and Spanish.
