The old adage, you have to learn to walk before you can run is the foundation on which we base our practices. If your child is struggling to sit up or feed themselves, we’re not going to spend our days trying to teach them long division and diagramming sentences. We’re going to begin by working the muscles needed to lift their head, to sit on their own, to hold a cracker. We want to get them engaged not just in their mental education but also their physical education.
We will develop a specialized course of treatment that will incorporate exercises, stretches and, when applicable, assistive and adaptive equipment like the Universal Exercise Unit. Ultimately, our goal is to maximize independence through the development of coordination, strength building, balance and flexibility.
