Pediatric Physical Therapy
Physical therapy sessions will usually last only 20 to 30 minutes for younger children. As they get older, sessions can be extended up to an hour. Your therapist will work with you to develop strategies to help your child build important skills such as grooming (brushing teeth, combing hair, etc.), feeding (using utensils and napkins properly) and dressing independently, as well as improving social skills, fine motor skills and visual perception skills. Guided strategies that you can use at home and at your child’s school will also be provided. Strategies will be adjusted over time as your child learns new skills and is able to function more independently.
Pediatric physical therapy can help your child develop to their fullest potential. Sessions with a physical therapist at our facility are safe, friendly and encouraging. If you’d like to request a free screening at Mark Their Words Therapy or begin therapy for your child on the autism spectrum, contact our office today to get the process started.
