Connections Therapy provides pediatric therapy for infants through adolescents with functional limitations due to congenital abnormalities, developmental delay, injury, illnesses or disorders.

Our Facility

Our inviting facility offers therapy gyms with sensory-motor equipment specifically selected to assist in the development of coordination, balance, strength and sensory processing skills. Our private therapy rooms are an optimal environment for the treatment of speech and language, feeding and fine motor skills.

The Treatment Process

A comprehensive evaluation is completed as per the needs of your child. The therapist will then analyze the results of the assessments. You will be contacted to schedule a meeting during which time you will review your child’s test results, therapy recommendations and home programs. Additionally, this meeting is an opportunity to collaborate with therapists to generate a treatment plan and objectives. Once therapy is started, you will have on-going communication regarding progress as well as updates in activities to complete at home.

PT assists children in developing the motor skills necessary to safely and efficiently negotiate throughout the environment. Treatment focuses on improving strength, range of motion, endurance, balance and coordination. Some of the most common diagnoses or limitations addressed by PT include:

  • Delays in the achievement of motor milestones including rolling, sitting, crawling, cruising or walking.
  • Torticollis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Prematurity
  • Stroke
  • Genetic or Congenital Disorders
  • Rehabilitation/recovery from orthopedic or neurological surgery

OT addresses the underlying components that hinder children from successfully functioning in their home, school and community. OT promotes functional skills through the use of meaningful and purposeful activities, in the case of children….through PLAY! Therapy uses fun activities and experiences, encouraging children to participate in tasks that will develop the strength, coordination, range of motion, perceptual skills, cognitive skills, sensory processing abilities and self-esteem needed to successfully function in multiple environments. By engaging in “just right” challenges children are able to feel a sense of accomplishment while making progress in areas of function (including but not limited to):

  • Fine Motor skills – Writing, coloring, cutting
  • Gross Motor skills – Jumping, throwing, catching
  • Self-Help Skills – Dressing, Self-feeding, grooming
  • Visual Perceptual and oculomotor skills – Tracking, Convergence, Figure ground, visual discrimination, spatial relations
  • Sensory Processing

Addresses areas related to expressive and receptive communication. Additionally, ST works to improve cognition, socialization, feeding and oral-motor skills.
