Our Pediatric Therapy Services

Our pediatric therapy services focus on meeting your child’s unique needs in the areas of communication, fine motor, adaptive skills, feeding, swallowing, and reading/writing. We partner with families in setting and working on goals for therapy. Our treatment rooms and innovative equipment are designed to mirror playful activities to the child, yet the therapists are drawing upon extensive training to provide challenging therapeutic activities aimed at developing greater capabilities and skill levels.

Our therapists are nationally-certified, state-licensed, and active members and leaders of the Anchorage therapy community.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy practitioners promote the function and engagement of children and their families so they can perform their "occupation" of being a child, playing, learning, and socializing with friends. We help children develop these necessary skills so their transition into adulthood becomes a path to an independent and rewarding life.

Our pediatric occupational therapists provide evaluation, intervention, and consultation in the

following areas:

• Fine Motor/Handwriting Skills
• Self-Help & Hygiene
• Play & Socialization
• Sensory Integration
• Organizing and Planning their Motor Skills
• Adaptive Equipment Modifications
• Environmental Adaptations for Home and School Settings
• Oral Motor Functioning

Our treatment rooms and innovative equipment are designed to mirror playful activities to the child, yet the therapists are drawing upon extensive training to provide challenging therapeutic activities aimed at developing greater capabilities and skill levels.
