Our physical therapist will evaluate your child's gross motor skills and functioning within their natural environment. Our PT evaluations include a review of medical and developmental history, conversation with the parents, observation, and standardize testing measures.
Following the evaluation, we will review the results with the family and collaborate to create a treatment plan along with individualized goals.
Physical Therapy services are offered onsite and in-home. We work with children with gross motor delays and disorders, as well as general orthopedic needs. We take a play-based approach to physical therapy to create a meaningful and motiving therapeutic environment. Every session will be tailored to the child's unique needs while teaching functional skills that will allow your child to engage in daily activities.
Below are some signs your child may benefit from a physical therapy evaluation. Every child develops at their own pace; however, if you are concerned about your child's development, please give us a call. We are here to answer your questions and help you determine if an evaluation is recommended.
