Physical therapists treat injuries or diagnoses that limit a patient’s ability to move. More specifically they work on balance and coordination, strength and endurance, and improving gross and fine motor skills. At Kidz Therapeze we have a great team that is familiar with all ages, and a variety of congenital, developmental, and neuromuscular disorders and diseases.
Occupational therapists focus on creating an independent child by identifying and eliminating barriers. They often work on daily living and work skills. More specifically they work on motor functions, reasoning, strength and dexterity, hand-eye coordination, short-term memory loss, problem solving, and cognitive behavioral therapy. At Kidz Therapeze we have several Occupational therapists with outstanding specializations including several Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) therapists.
Speech and Language Pathologists specialize in the treatment of communication and swallowing disorders. More specifically they work on sound production, resonance, fluency, language, and different feeding disorders. At Kidz Therapeze, we have a wide range of expertise, and are capable of accommodating most diagnosis.
We will work with you as much as possible to create a schedule that is convenient for your family, but that ensures your child gets the best possible treatment.
Appointments should be cancelled in advance and rescheduled when possible. Not showing for an appointment causes poor therapy results so they are treated seriously. The regular appointment time is lost after 3 no showed appointments. If attendance drops below 50% within a 30 day period you and your doctor will be notified and you may lose your regularly scheduled appointment. The physician is notified of the attendance problem. Cancelled appointments can often be rescheduled if planned in advance. Cancellations due to illness are understandable and encouraged when the child is contagious. We do not allow children who are contagious to be treated since there are many medically fragile children using our facility. By the same token, therapists are encouraged to stay away when they are contagious.
