  • What can I expect for my child during a speech screening?

    After a thorough evaluation, our therapist will create a customized therapy plan tailored to accomplish your child’s unique therapeutic goals.  It will include the right combination of strategies, including exercises, games, equipment, tools and modalities, and home activities the whole family can participate in.  We may also be able to make other types of recommendations for their school and adaptive equipment or devices a necessary.

    The key to pediatric physical therapy, as with therapy in general, is to challenge your child while fostering a warm and welcoming environment. Your child thus develops skills while having fun at the same time.  When these two aspects of therapy remain in balance with each other, your child is able to make sustained progress toward goals and ultimately your child will maximize his/her potential.

  • How do I know my child needs speech therapy?

    ​How do I know if my child may need physical therapy?  Can my child benefit from physical therapy?  These are the two most common questions we receive from parents.  There is no clear answer, but there are some indicators to look out for:

    • Your child complains of pain or difficulty when performing gross motor tasks.

    • Your child frequently walks up on the balls of their feet (tip toe walk) or walks in an awkward manner.

    • Your child is unable or has difficulty performing gross motor tasks such as rolling, sitting, crawling, or walking in the younger population; and jumping, running, or skipping in the older population.

    • Your child falls and trips often when walking.

    • As an infant, your child may have a strong preference for turning or tilting their head to one side.

    • Your child neglects or has difficulty using one side of their body while consistently using their dominant preferred side.

    • Expected developmental milestones are not met during your child’s first year of life. This can include, rolling, sitting, crawling, or standing independently.

    • Your child has difficulty keeping up with their peers during play.

    • The child was injured or underwent a surgical procedure and is now unable to perform at his/her prior level of function.

  • What other speech screenings do you offer?

    We offer bilingual Spanish speech therapy sessions as well.

It's always emotionally tough to learn your child isn't hitting expected milestones. Luckily, we had a really great experience with our speech therapist, Andrea. My son is an extremely shy kid and she quickly got him to warm up to her in their sessions at his in-home daycare. We clearly observed his progress at home, and were impressed at how well her lessons were sticking with him. I also appreciated the fact that she was an excellent communicator and would always keep me posted on how he was doing, and what letters or phrases he had mastered saying. Andrea was kind, flexible, and was exactly who I (and my son) needed at a time when he needed speech therapy, and I needed reassurance that he was going to be OK. Highly recommend Therapy Care.
