Physical therapists have expertise in movement, motor development, and body function (eg, strength, balance, and endurance). They help children develop functional gross motor skills by applying evidence-based clinical reasoning during examination, evaluation, diagnosis, and intervention for children, youth, and young adults.
Aquatic therapy uses the properties of water to help children and young adults develop strength, balance, postural control, body awareness, flexibility, endurance, and overall regulation.
Occupational therapy helps children develop body awareness, strength, and coordination needed for self-care, early learning, and academic skills. Children with sensory integration problems, social and behavioral problems, and cognitive difficulties can also benefit from treatment.
Speech Therapy helps children develop communication skills, including articulation, verbal comprehension, expression, auditory processing, phonological awareness, pragmatics, voice and fluency. Children with oral motor and feeding problems or children needing augmentative and alternative communication can also benefit from this service.
