PlayWorks is a pediatric therapy clinic providing evaluation and treatment of children from infants through teenage years. We specialize in creating individualized programs to address the needs of each child and work closely with the parents and caregivers.
Our goal is to build strong foundation skills for a child to succeed in all areas of functioning, across all environments. We specialize in building a child's confidence, trust, and self-esteem. Our services include occupational, physical and speech therapy. We also provide screenings, assessments and developmental intervention. Welcome to our website, it has been designed to provide an introduction to our practice and provide resources for families of children with special needs.
Our Physical Therapists facilitate a child's age-appropriate gross motor skills.
- Comprehensive evaluations which include clinical observations, standardized testing and parent-child interviews.
We offer both informal screenings and formal evaluations. An informal assessment/screening consists of a 60 minute session with an Occupational Therapist, Speech Pathologist or Physical Therapist. The therapist speaks with the parent about the child's present functioning level and her opinion as to the child's need for services in that area. A formal evaluation includes a written report and standardized scoring of a child's functional level and recommendation as to whether or not services are necessary. Standardized assessment tools, non-standardized assessment tools, parent interview, and clinical observations are used to assess the child's performance.
- Treatment sessions with a strict one child/therapist utilization of the gym
- Communication with schools, daycares and camps
- Home programs
