Therapy Service OfferingsA sample of our pediatric therapy specialties
Individual Occupational Therapy
Therapy is typically recommended for once or twice per week. Children use suspended and climbing equipment to improve motor skills and sensory processing. Depending on your child’s needs, sessions may include a portion of time spent on fine motor skills, visual motor skills, and handwriting.

In order to best evaluate progress, a baseline of ability is determined using a combination of observation, standardized testing, and interviews. Basic background information provided from parents and teachers helps to form a contextual understanding of a child's difficulties. Standardized assessments are used to quantify a child's abilities and serve as a basis for comparison as progress is achieved. Several standardized assessments are available and your child's therapist will discuss the best option with you. The therapist can also learn a great deal with direct observation of your child in either a clinic, school, or home setting. Following the evaluation, the therapist will schedule a consultation to discuss the results of the evaluation.

For clients who are new to occupational or physical therapy, we offer this service to determine the need for further testing and to provide additional recommendations. During the one hour screening, the occupational therapist will make clinical observations of age-appropriate gross motor, fine/visual motor, and play-based skills. The physical therapist will assess the architecture of the child’s feet, posture, alignment, strength, and range of motion. Parents will receive a short plan of care with the therapist’s impressions and recommendations.
Interactive Metronome (IM)
“The IM program provides a structured goal-oriented process that challenges the patient to synchronize a range of hand and foot exercises to a precise computer-generated reference tone heard through headphones. The patient attempts to match the rhythmic beat with repetitive motor actions.” Goals include increased attention, increased endurance, bilateral coordination, midline crossing, motor planning, sequencing, timing and rhythm.
