A child referred to physical therapy or occupational therapy may be disabled or delayed by illness, accident, birth defect or complications. This may result in the child having abnormal muscle tone, impaired balance, decreased functional movement, weakness, or poor coordination.
Harris Pediatric Therapy provides comprehensive physical and occupational therapy evaluations and assessments, customized intervention, and individual support and consultation for children and their families. Because we specialize in working with children from birth to 21 years of age, therapy is incorporated into play utilizing various toys and equipment to improve strength, balance, and coordination. Physical Therapists focus on movement dysfunctions and help children learn how to move independently or with assistive devices including walkers, wheelchairs or crutches. We assess the need for braces or orthotics and perform evaluations for adaptive equipment. Occupational therapists focus on fine motor dysfunction and can also work on adaptive equipment and perform home evaluations. In addition to pediatric therapy, we also offer services to adults over 21 years of age.
All therapy services will be provided in a manner that reflects ethical practices in accordance with the guidelines, rules, and regulations of the state licensing board, state agencies, and professional associations for all treating therapists. Our goal is to enhance the potential and individual capabilities of our patients by supporting the most optimal outcomes for improved functional independence.
Harris Pediatric Therapy is an Early Intervention Provider. We are also a Medicaid provider and in-network with most major insurances. We will make every effort to work with families to assist them in getting the financial assistance they need.
