Pediatric Therapy Team

The Pediatric Therapy Team consists of licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists with specialized experience in treating infants and children. The team offers a full range of diagnostic and therapy services customized for children of all ages — from newborns to young adults. The services start with a thorough assessment of physical, neurological, motor, sensory, swallowing/feeding or cognitive impairments. Your care provider will take time to answer your questions and explain the recommended services and approach to therapy.

Depending upon your child’s specific needs, therapy may include:

  • Physical therapy — helps children achieve developmental milestones, restore functions after a serious sports injury, improve mobility, increase strength and relieve pain
  • Occupational therapy — helps children reach their optimal level of independence in daily living activities, fine motor skills, visual processing and sensory processing
  • Speech therapy — assists children who are having difficulty speaking, understanding, feeding, swallowing and using language

Pediatric therapy is given to babies and children who are currently staying in the hospital as well as children being treated in an outpatient clinic.

Comprehensive Therapy Customized for Children

You’ll find this combination, plus the healing power of a family-centered setting and a location that’s close to home when you choose Anderson Pediatric Therapy.

Our pediatric therapists will design a treatment program that takes into account your child’s current challenges as well as physical, neurological or cognitive impairments. These challenges may be caused by:

  • Developmental delays (gross and fine motor skills)
  • Feeding/swallowing disorders
  • Orthopedics/gait disorders
  • Sensory integration issues
  • Speech delay
  • Torticolis

While your child’s challenges are unique, the goal of pediatric therapy is universal: to help all children reach their height of independence and functioning.
