Pediatric Therapy Institute has helped over 8000 children from birth through twenty-one since our opening in 1975. We see children with speech/language delays, learning disabilities, dyslexia,  sensory integration disorder, developmental delays, head injuries, orthopedic injuries,  motor incoordination, perceptual problems, hyperactivity, attention deficit, and emotional/behavioral disorders. Our team provides evaluation and therapy for children having a single problem or a complex syndrome. Caring professionals provide effective, comprehensive treatment at our convenient location. The comfortable atmosphere of our office fosters success and self-confidence.

Why Are We Successful?

About Us & Our Services

Evaluation is Comprehensive

  • Extensive background information is gathered before we see the child.

  • Only necessary tests are administered, avoiding over-testing.

  • We develop a complete profile of the child's strengths and weaknesses.

Parents are Team Members

  • We listen to the parental concerns and goals so that we can work together.

  • Parents learn methods to help their children in a Winning Combination.

  • Home activities are demonstrated and written instructions are given at each session.

  • Family time constraints and finances are considered.

Therapy is Goal Directed

  • All therapy is one-to-one.

  • Treatment starts at a level allowing immediate success.

  • The developmental sequence of typical skill acquisition is followed.                                     

  • Therapists use proven techniques, not "high tech" fads.

  • Activities are constantly modified to be challenging, but successful.

  • Progress is expected at each session.

Total Approach to Treatment

  • All information is reviewed to develop an individual treatment plan.

  • Inter-related factors are identified and prioritized.

  • We look for the "whys and hows" of a speech and learning difficulty, not just developmental levels.

  • Current research in education, neurology and the behavioral sciences form the basis of treatment.

Continuation is Vital

  • Progress is measured by reports of school performance and everyday functioning, not just by what happens in the clinic.

  • Our team members listen to the children and communicate with them on their level.

  • Information is shared with the physician and other professionals through diagnostic and progress reports, telephone contacts and conferences.

  • Parents always decide what information is released and to whom.

  • Regular contacts are made with the school to coordinate the therapy program with classroom curriculum.
