“I believe real courage comes from God when we trust in Him as we face something new and maybe even a little scary. The children I work with remind me every day of what courage is as they tackle new challenges and conquer them!”

Rebecca Bazzoni, MS,PTExecutive Director

Physical Therapy

Physical therapists help children maximize their independence and ability to move around their environment. This includes children with developmental delays as well as those with a wide variety of injuries, disorders and diseases that affect the musculoskeletal system. Treatment focuses on:

• Flexibility
• Tone management
• Balance
• Coordination
• Motor planning
• Endurance
• Sensory processing
• Achievement of gross motor milestones such as sitting, crawling, walking, running, jumping and climbing.

Our therapists also work in close collaboration with orthotists and assistive technology specialists to determine the best solution for our children’s bracing and equipment needs.

Occupational Therapy

The primary “occupations” of children are playing and interacting with others. Our occupational therapists help children achieve maximal independence in these areas through treatments to address:

•  Fine motor skills such as: handwriting,
shoe tying, and buttoning clothes
•  Visual motor skills
•  Sensory processing skills
•  Oral motor and feeding habits
•  Cognitive skills
•  Self-care skills

Speech Therapy

Speech therapists help children develop critical communication skills so that they can interact with others and make their wants and needs known at home, school and in community settings. Treatment focuses on:

•  Language development
•  Speech production, intelligibility and fluency
•  Auditory perception
•  Oral motor control
•  Cognitive skills
•  Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC)
