Evaluations

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.

 
 

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.
