Children want and need to communicate, but for some kids, it can be an uphill battle. Our licensed and experienced speech language pathologists know how important effective communication is to a child's happiness and feelings of wellbeing. That's why we're dedicated to providing the highest quality therapies and treatments for all types of disorders and delays. Our professionals work closely with children and their parents to develop the speech and language skills essential for success at home, school, and in the community.
Specialized Feeding Therapy
Helping children develop and maintain a healthy relationship with food is what Spectrum's specialized feeding services are all about. Our knowledgeable therapists use evidence-based strategies to help kids overcome feeding challenges, while supporting parents as they work towards the obtainable goal of happy, nurturing, and functional family mealtimes.
Just like adults, kids have jobs to do too. A kid's "occupation" usually consists of doing stuff like playing, eating, going to school, sleeping, completing chores, and participating in family routines. Our occupational therapists aid children who struggle with the business of everyday life by addressing motor skills, sensory processing, and all areas of development. In so doing, they foster a child's independence so that he or she can become capable and playful members of their community.
Spectrum Pediatrics has a professional staff of skilled physical therapists that can bolster a child's overall strength, balance, coordination, and mobility. Because our therapists understand a child’s growing body, they can help them improve motor activities such as crawling, walking, running, playing games, and participating in sports, all in fun and functional ways.
