  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists, including a board-certified Pediatric Clinical Specialist
  • Speech-language pathologists certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

 

Individualized, collaborative care designed for your child’s maximum potential.

At Milestones, treatment sessions are individualized for each child’s unique situation, needs and potential. At the same time, treatment is collaborative.

In addition to working with area pediatricians, our therapists work closely with each child and family to set appropriate goals, develop a custom treatment program and empower the family to support development and therapies in between treatments. Here’s how we do it:

  • Pediatric Occupational Therapy addresses the skills that are the foundation for performing activities of daily living, including feeding, self-care, play skills, social interaction, attention to task, 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 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, and pragmatic/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.
