Our therapists will design a comprehensive pediatric Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy program tailored to the individual needs of each child. Our goal is to develop or restore as much abilities and independence as possible, with activities and toys that make therapy fun. We provide Occupational and Physical Therapy for infants and children at schools, daycare centers, homes, and at our state of the art location. We have individual areas for privacy and to attend to the unique needs of each child.
