Occupational therapy is not typically associated with a pediatric clinic, but many children face developmental issues that can hinder their ability to move. “Occupation” refers to the normal, daily activities many of us take for granted, such as eating, getting dressed, enjoying time with friends, or working on homework.
Our team works to promote mobile independence for your child so their time at home, school and in the community is more natural with less hindrance. We use evidence-based research to strengthen, modify or adapt a child’s skills to maximize their ability to participate in daily routines that are foundational to their future.
Our speech therapy services are available to children throughout the CSRA to help them build strong communication skills that will be vital to their short- and long-term development. Our team helps your child learn effective verbal and written communication methods to help you, teachers, friends, and family better interact and understand what they’re communicating.
Children and adolescents go through changes in their moods and behaviors as they grow. Some of these changes are predictable and some can be challenging. Our counseling services support your child’s social skills and emotional intelligence as they grow to promote healthy, happy lives. Counseling provides a safe space for your child to process thoughts and emotions and learn coping skills to better manage the concerns impacting their well-being. Individual therapy for children and adolescents often involves the parents/guardians and asks them to play an active role in the treatment process.
