What We Do
Occupational and Physical Therapy help children to build new skills to develop a strong foundation for learning. Our customized programs cover a wide range of therapeutic needs individualized for your child, including:
- A comprehensive approach geared specifically towards your child’s therapeutic success.
- Provide a total therapy environment designed specifically for the infant, young child or adolescent.
- Create a supportive atmosphere where parents are active partners in their child’s progress.
- Design individual and group sessions emphasizing hands-on therapy, kid-friendly play and home programs.
At Good Beginnings we believe that parents are an integral part of the therapeutic process. Because much of the day is spent at home with families, parents and caregivers have unique opportunities to help their children expand on skills learned in therapy. The Good Beginnings philosophy entails teaching and training to carry out home programs tailored for their child’s needs. Contact Us
Customized Orthotics and Splinting
Orthotic and splints are devices that are used to provide support and improve body alignment. Early fabrication of orthotics for children helps to provide a solid postural foundation for the body to grow on. We have therapists trained in casting and fitting for customized Cascade orthotics. www.dafo.com Contact Us
We have therapists trained in advanced levels of the Therapeutic Listening approach. This approach is based on the use of specially modified audio files via CD’s or MP3. Listening is an evidence-based protocol, combining sound-based intervention with activities to create a comprehensive program effective for diverse populations. Listening can impact sensory modulation, attention, behavior, organization, and speech-language difficulties. This program can be implemented for home use and monitored in the clinic. For more information regarding the program you may also look at www.vitalink.net. Contact Us
Our physical therapists are trained to analyze the components of your child’s walking via footprint, visual and video analysis. This assessment allows us to custom design treatment programs and exercises to address any difficulties with walking, excessive tripping and falling, or difficulties with running. Contact Us
Pediatric Incontinence Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can help children gain control of their bowel and badder function. This therapy can benefit children experiencing issues from daytime urinary incontinence, night-time bed wetting (enuresis), constipation and chronic abdominal pain at all ages. We follow a play based format for treatment; your child will think it is fun and not work!
