Individualized, Collaborative Care

At Milestones treatment sessions are individualized for each child’s unique situation, needs and potential. In addition, treatment is collaborative between all rehab services.

In addition to the direction offered by our referring pediatricians, our therapists set goals, develop custom treatment programs and empower the family to augment the child’s development and therapies in between treatment sessions. Here’s how we do it:

  • Pediatric Occupational Therapy addresses skills that are the foundation for performing activities of daily living, such as feeding, self-care, play and, social skills, visual and motor tasks and safety awareness. Our occupational therapists work together with parents and caregivers to set age-appropriate goals and programs for both home and school environments.
  • Pediatric Physical Therapy addresses the acquisition of age appropriate developmental milestones such as sitting, crawling, standing, walking, running, jumping, kicking, throwing and stair climbing. Our physical therapists empower family and caregivers with programs and hands-on demonstrations to support therapeutic goals that will enhance the child’s performance at home, in school and in the community.
  • Pediatric Speech-Language Therapy evaluates and treats children with a broad range of communicative disorders, including articulation/phonological disorders, stuttering/fluency disorders, receptive and expressive language disorders, social language disorders, selective mutism, voice disorders, and audiological impairments. Our speech-language pathologists strive to help each child reach their highest potential through personalized treatment plans designed with an emphasis on communication readiness.
