A comprehensive evaluation will give us a complete picture of your child’s sensory processing and motor needs along with recommendations for services and accommodations.
Sometimes insurance plans will not pay for a comprehensive evaluation. For families in this situation, we can provide an assessment sufficient to determine eligibility for occupational or physical therapy services. Please contact us for more information.
Physical therapists can assess and facilitate many aspects of your child's gross motor skills, including mobility, function, and safety in different settings. They work to enhance many underlying components of motor skills, such as strength, flexibility, endurance, and balance. Treatment may include manual and handling techniques, exercises, adapted play, and training caregivers in strategies they can do at home. Our physical therapists can also assess the need for wheelchairs, orthotics, and other supports.
Occupational therapists strive to facilitate independence in many areas of daily life such as: dressing, eating, play, handwriting, and participation in family routines and community environments.
They can assess and facilitate many underlying skill components, such as fine motor strength, eye-hand coordination, visual-perception, and sensory processing. Treatment takes into consideration the child's specific motivators, which are woven into carefully chosen tasks and play scenarios. Many of our therapists have advanced areas of training, such as sensory integration or feeding.
