Pinnacle Performance Physical Therapy offers school-based physical therapy services as well. Therapy begins with an evaluation of a child’s ability to access the portions of the campus applicable to that child in a safe and effective manner, including the school bus, the classrooms, the hallways, the cafeteria and the playground.
Initial areas of concern are usually identified by a teacher or parent, and are followed up with clinical observation and an examination of the child’s functional abilities as it relates to his or her ability to access the curriculum.
Therapy will be provided through direct service, monitoring and or consultative approaches, or a combination thereof.
The Occupational Therapy helps your child—through play activities—improve his or her independent function. Our goal is to help your child function better physically, emotionally, academically and socially in his or her daily activities.
Treatment options include: regulation of arousal levels, refinement of sensory processing, development of communication skills, enhancement of language and cognitive skills, age-appropriate self-care skills, motor planning skills, hand-eye coordination, muscle strengthening, behavior modification, sensitivity adjustment, balance improvement, handwriting, oral motor/feeding.
