Palmer Physical Therapy Clinic for Kids

Palmer Occupational Therapy Clinic for Kids

Our Palmer occupational therapy clinic for kids helps children participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. 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.

    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.

Palmer Physical Therapy for Kids

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