He’s had a big OT week. He’s pretty much feeding himself now (I load and hand him the spoon and sometimes help boost the elbow), he’s doing much better using his iPad and even more exciting is his power chair driving. He hasn’t driven in a long time and couldn’t use the joystick that came with his chair. Now he can! He got in it on Saturday and drove like he hasn’t been away from it for almost a year. He is also more aware of barriers and is listening and following directions better while driving.
We have been bringing our three children to PTP for the last nine years, and in that time, the growth they have made is nothing short of astounding. When we started occupational therapy, we had a child who wouldn’t go down a slide or swing, and a child who was constantly injured because he would fall, couldn’t hold a pencil, and was low weight. They are now thriving preteens who face the world head on, and successfully. Our third child has made a lot of progress as well and I fully credit it to the staff at PTP and to Kay Born, owner and OT. PTP isn’t just a place for your child to receive therapy services, it is a place where your child is cared for and loved. We consider the OTs an extended part of our family. I can’t recommend PTP any more strongly, particularly if your child has sensory issues.
Life-changing. That’s the best way to describe our experience at Pediatric Therapy Partners. I can still remember walking into PTP for the first time with my son praying that I was making the best choice for him. Almost five years later, I can honestly say that choosing PTP for speech and occupational therapy services was absolutely one of the best choices we made for my son! I am grateful everyday that we are treated like family, not just clients, and we feel very connected to the therapy process. I highly recommend Kay and her staff to everyone looking for SLP or OT services!
Neurofeedback was something that I had never heard about. We were referred to Pediatric Therapy Partners by our counselor due to my daughters anxiety. She was refusing to go to school or do homework. I was ready to try anything at that point. Neurofeedback was amazing! My daughter responded so well to the training and it literally changed her life and life at home. I am so grateful that we found PTP and Neurofeedback.
My son had been receiving speech therapy services at another clinic and was not making progress. We decided to try PTP because of their approach to therapy. The therapy gyms look like playgrounds and the kids get lots of opportunities to move their bodies, which really helps my son. He doesn’t even think he is going to therapy, he just thinks he is going to play with his friends! There are always opportunities for him to play games with other children and he loves it. The staff is excellent and they really make you feel at home. As a parent I like being a part of the process. I would highly recommend PTP for speech therapy services!
Owner & Occupational Therapist
Occupational Therapy intervention using a sensory integrative approach is fun. Treatment is provided in the context of play, and uses the child’s interests and motivations to obtain optimal engagement in therapy.
OT is based on the unique needs of each child and it addresses challenges with sensory processing, self-regulation, behavior, emotional regulation, gross and fine motor skills, social interaction and school performance. Therapists also help with daily living skills.LEARN MORE
Speech Therapy at Pediatric Therapy Partners utilizes movement and play to
help a child organize their body and more readily access speech and language skills. Our skilled speech language pathologists use the sensory rich environment to foster engagement, self regulation and participation to teach functional play skills and social communication.
Using a child-centered, relationship based approach to treatment; speech language pathologists offer comprehensive evaluation and individualized therapy.LEARN MORE
There are times when a traditional approach to treatment isn’t as effective as a co-treat model with a Speech Therapist and an Occupational Therapist treating one child together. Ideally, by combining the two approaches, more significant progress is made in the same amount of time. Individual progress varies based on each child’s specific strengths and weaknesses, as well as cognitive, environmental and other variables. When the co-treated child is ready, speech and occupational therapies separate and return to two separate sessions.LEARN MORE
Occupational and Speech Therapists are available to provide in-home or school consultative services. The therapist will observe your child in the chosen environment to gain a better understanding of the challenges in that unique setting. The therapist works with you to develop therapeutic intervention or environmental adaptations that will provide increased support for your child.LEARN MORE
Individuals of any age can benefit from EEG training. Neurofeedback can help with a variety of childhood challenges including bedwetting, nightmares, sleep issues, attentional issues, regulatory problems, and other forms of disruptive behaviors. In addition, it can help children, adolescents and adults who struggle with anxiety and depression. By providing the individual with real-time feedback on brainwave activity, we are able to train the brain waves for optimal functioning.LEARN MORE
Pediatric Therapy Partners offers a variety of groups for different ages. Included are social groups, handwriting groups, community access groups, and feeding. This can be a very effective way to practice skills developed in individual sessions. Participants in our groups go through a screening process to ensure each child receives the most individualized attention within the context of a group.LEARN MORE

“Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.” -Mr. Rogers
Play motivates children to engage and learn. That’s why at PTP most of our therapy takes place in the context of play. Although it may look like play, it has a purpose. A skilled therapist is able to engage the child in what they think is a fun activity, while remediating the challenges that brings them to us!SEE FULL GALLERY
