myPT offers in-home Physical Therapy services for children with developmental disabilities and/or delays. PT can assist children with the advancement of their strength, coordination and motor planning. This treatment works to improve their ability to roll, sit, crawl, stand, walk, run and play with their family and friends and to explore their environments.
myPT also offers in-home services for children with Torticollis and/or Plagiocephaly (flattened head shape). PT can be an important service to avoid need for a cranial orthosis (helmet) for children with mild and moderate changes in their head shape and in children who are brought for PT at a young age. myPT can also support general developmental skills for children who do require a cranial orthosis.
Home and “natural environment” based therapy has long been considered the gold standard in developmental pediatric intervention. myPT wants to work with you and your child to maximize his/her progress and independence.
I’ve been working with pediatric clients and their families since 1998: long enough to have developed excellent clinical skills, evaluation skills and rapport building skills. Just as importantly, it’s long enough to understand and acknowledge that I learn from clients and their families every day.
I have extensive experience in working with children with diagnoses including, but not limited to:
Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Down Syndrome, Angleman’s Syndrome, Rett Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury, developmental delays, Hydrocephalus, Toe-Walking, Autism Spectrum Disorder/PDD, Developmental Delay, JRA, OI, various Muscle Diseases, Plagiocephaly, Brachcephaly and Torticollis.
I look forward to being a team member with you and your child in order to maximize your child’s development and independence. I also strive to have plenty of fun and laughs along the way!
