TheraTeam Rehab Services aims to provide a highly specialized, multi-disciplinary team of speech, occupational and physical therapist who provide intensive, individualized therapy based on each child's unique needs.
Communication is one of the most fundamental and important of human skills. Impaired communication abilities can affect every aspect of a child's life from learning new skills, playing, engaging in social interaction, and even achieving in school. Speech Language Therapy focuses on improving a child's speech and language skills so that he or she is equipped to learn, communicate, and participate with others in natural environments. At TheraTeam, our Speech Language Pathologists are highly trained to serve children in a variety of areas such as:
Pediatric Occupational Therapy at TheraTeam focuses on helping children gain independence and promote development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills, visual motor skills and primitive reflexes that children need to function and socialize in their home, school, play and community environments. Occupational Therapy can help children and adolescents improve their cognitive, physical, sensory and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment. Some people may think occupational therapy is only for adults; kids, after all, do not have occupations. But a child’s main job is playing and learning. At TheraTeam our highly trained Occupational Therapists evaluate and treat children from birth to 21 years of age, with a variety of diagnoses and areas of need that may include:
If your child needs physical therapy, they’ll work with one of our pediatric physical therapist (PT). Typically, pediatric PTs treat kids under 18, from newborns to teenagers. They see children for a variety of different reasons, including bone/muscle issues, sports-related injuries, or genetic, brain, spine, or nerve disorders. Pediatric PTs help kids improve their range of motion, strength, flexibility, and movement patterns. The goal? Help children move their bodies how and when they want to the best of their abilities. Pediatric PTs help make everyday activities easier for kids.
What Will My Child Do in a Physical Therapy Session?
For the most part, pediatric physical therapy sessions should look and feel like play. PTs engage kids with fun, age-appropriate games and activities to keep them motivated and happy. (Kids should have fun, but physical therapy can be hard work!)
PTs help improve gross motor skills (tasks that involve large muscle groups, like walking and throwing) by encouraging kids to do things like:
A PT can also suggest activities to do with your child at home.
(Ages: Birth through 3 years)
Early intervention is key to children under the age of 3. They are constantly learning by playing, exploring, interacting, and imitating what they see around them. Developmental therapy takes into consideration those everyday experiences and addresses ALL areas of development that are needed to interact functionally within their environment.
These areas include:
· Cognitive skills: problem solving, critical thinking, sorting
· Expressive and receptive communication: speaking, listening, understanding
· Social-Emotional skills: expressing emotions, interacting with others
· Gross and fine motor: crawling, walking, grasping, drawing
· Adaptive skills: dressing, toileting, eating
At TheraTeam, our developmental therapist work alongside the parent to develop the best plan of care that fits into the child’s natural environment and typical daily activities. Therapist will help to provide the child and parent their own tools to confidently address and navigate the child’s development.
