Physical Therapy Evaluation
Our licensed and experienced physical therapists will listen to the concerns about your child’s abilities in the areas of balance, coordination, gross motor skills, and overall strength. Based on your concerns, the physical therapist will evaluate your child in those area(s) of need. Frequently assessed skills during a physical therapy evaluation include:
- Balance (including dynamic and static positions)
- Coordination Skills
- Gross Motor Skills (including ambulation, navigating the environment, throwing, kicking etc.)
The results of these evaluations will guide the therapist’s recommendations for a plan of care including therapy goals and recommended session length and frequency. These evaluations are required prior to beginning ongoing therapy sessions.
Physical Therapy Sessions
After your child has completed the evaluation, our physical therapist will identify the area(s) of skill deficits and make recommendations for ongoing therapy sessions. In these sessions, the therapist will utilize fun, interactive age-appropriate activities to develop balance, coordination, gross motor skills, and strengthening skills. The therapist will also educate the child’s caregivers on ways to develop those skills through at-home activities and play.
