SERVICES » Pediatric Therapy
Professional Therapies is the regional leader in the provision of comprehensive therapy services for the children of our region. Our pediatric team therapists are well trained in the delivery of school and medically based therapies in their respective professions. Early therapy has proven to be extremely beneficial in allowing a young client to reach their maximum potential in life.
Many of our therapists are parents themselves and our treatment approach routinely incorporates the family and home environment in order to facilitate carryover of therapeutic activities during a child’s daily routine. Our staff members are involved in the provision of Early Intervention Services per each child’s individual Family Service Plan (IFSP). We also work with ABC’s of ABA, more information listed here : http://www.professionaltherapies.org/virginia-therapy-services/pediatric-therapy/abcs-of-aba/
A partial list of the many diagnoses we would treat include:
- Auditory Processing Disorders
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Cerebral Palsy
- Delayed fine motor skills
- Down Syndrome
- Orthopedic Surgery aftercare
- Sensory Processing / Integration
- Spina Bifida
- Impaired visual-perceptual motor skills
Our therapists use a great variety of treatment approaches including pool therapy, sensory integration strategies, and vestibular rehabilitation, along with conventional gait training and strengthening activities incorporated into planned play activities.
One of the greatest challenges for pediatric therapists is to incorporate therapeutic strategies into play routines. Children learn through play and pediatric therapists build on this. Parent/caregiver follow-through is most important also. PTOR supports parent/caregiver involvement in all therapeutic sessions.
