Alaska Pediatric Therapy Services:

Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists help children participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). We help children with special needs to participate fully in school and social situations and overall lead a happier, healthier, and more meaningful life. Occupational therapy services typically include:

  • an individualized evaluation, during which the parents or guardians and occupational therapist determine the child’s goals,
  • customized intervention to improve the child’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and
  • an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.

Occupational therapy services may include recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for parents and caregivers. Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment to fit the child, and the child is an integral part of the therapy team.

  • Occupational Therapists

    As with all our staff, our Occupational Therapists are highly trained and certified in their field and participate in continuing education, keeping abreast of new developments in therapeutic techniques to assist children with special needs or development challenges.

Pediatric Physical Therapy

Developmental delays, genetic disorders, injuries or other circumstances may impede your child’s strength, range of motion and coordination. For these reasons physicians often recommend Physical Therapy for children. Our Physical Therapists are here to evaluate your child, create a comprehensive treatment plan to address any concerns and carry out therapy.

Through developmental activities, strength and balance exercises, stretches, adaptive play, massage and other physical therapy techniques, we’ll encourage improvements in your child’s movement and ability to accomplish daily activities. Our pediatric therapists aim to improve your child’s physical well-being, limit any pain or discomfort as a result of physical problems, and educate parents to better assist the child at home.

For our staff, there’s nothing better than seeing a child reach his or her goals and master new skills and abilities.

My infant daughter has been going for over a year now and we have nothing but great things to say about Playful Learning. They are very accommodating and try their best to make sure we are taken care of!

The front desk has always been so helpful with any schedule changes we have needed. And the speech therapist has been amazing with our child and has helped him come so far!!!! Absolutely love them!

The staff of Playful Learning in Palmer have been nothing but absolutely wonderful, helping and, most importantly: EFFECTIVE in helping our child and his developmental needs! They are great with communicating appointment reminders, updates to any changes as soon as they have their information, and the overall progress of the child’s development in the programs. Definitely recommend them!

My son has been receiving speech therapy at Playful Learning for almost a year now. I have nothing but a positive experience. At his year evaluation, his improvement has surpassed all our expectations. He is excited to go to therapy every session. I really feel like we are all working together to reach his goals. We feel so safe and happy he is in their care.

My Granddaughter has been receiving physical therapy and occupational therapy from Playful Learning for a little over a year now. I’m not sure what we would have done without them. They have done amazing things for my granddaughter. The staff is very knowledgeable, kind, and understanding. The staff always has goal oriented activities for my granddaughter along with suggestions for things to work on at home. Not only do they work with goal oriented activities but they make it fun for a 2 year old! My granddaughter gets excited when we get to the building and wants to run to their office. The facility, waiting room, all of the equipment, and toys are also extremely clean!!

I am so grateful for the care and support Playful Learning provided my son for his occupational therapy and speech therapy needs. Everyone we interacted with during our time there was understanding, attentive, and knowledgeable in their skill sets. The staff was beyond truly wonderful; from the front office to the therapists, all were welcoming with smiles, and communication was on point. When I had questions or concerns, they listened and brainstormed ideas to help my son in our daily life. They made us a team in my son’s care. As to the facility, it was wonderfully equipped with loads of options to assist a child in their therapy needs.

Thank you, Playful Learning. You made a difference in our lives!
