Physical Therapy Services


Pediatric Physical Therapists (PTs) are movement specialists who deliver skilled physical therapy services to children and their families. They help children work towards functioning independently and promote participation in various activities at home, school, and the community. Pediatric physical therapists work with children with a wide range of diagnoses from infancy through adolescence. The physical therapist works in close partnership with the child’s family and other members of the rehabilitation team in order to establish a personalized treatment plan.

Caregiver Empowerment

Caregivers are empowered by the learning opportunities they receive from close contact with the therapist. They learn valuable therapeutic tools to implement on a daily basis.

Incorporates Family's Resources

Caregiver education about a child’s therapy needs takes place within the the family’s routine and incorporates the family’s own resources.

Consistency & Follow-Through

Family involvement can lead to increased consistency and maximize results. Many families also notice improved follow-through with strategies, as the family takes an active role in the therapeutic process. 

No Need for Transportation

The stress of transportation to and from a clinic is eliminated, which is a major barrier to care for many families.

Incorporated into Daily Life

Home-based therapists can ensure that equipment and strategies are appropriate and able to be implemented into the family’s daily life, which is important for many families and children.

Familiar & Natural Environment

Children seen in their home may be more relaxed since it is a familiar and comfortable environment. For children who function best this way, this can lead to increased participation and better outcomes.

Similarly, learning new skills in a natural environment can be more beneficial than in a simulated environment for many children.
