The pediatric team at DPT recognize the need for effective treatment that considers the whole child. Our goal is to work closely with the child’s caregivers, primary care physician and medical specialists to collaborate care successfully. We incorporate a variety of services and treatment techniques including therapeutic exercise, manual medicine, progression of gross motor skills through functional activity, motor planning, and neuromuscular education. Care is provided in a creative and nurturing environment. DPT pediatric clinicians consider our hands-on approach a valuable tool. We attend to a child’s sensory motor systems in an integrative manner. Each child will experience a thorough evaluation, followed by an individualized treatment plan.
