Occupational & Physical
At Excel, both physical and occupational therapists are trained and competent in assessing, recognizing, and treating sensory integration dysfunction and autism spectrum disorders. All of our clinicians have the ability to aggressively and successfully treat symptoms affecting your child’s nervous system.
In the clinical setting, the occupational therapist evaluates and treats performance and independence in the areas of hand skills (fine motor), self-care, visual motor, visual perception and graphomotor skills (handwriting). Occupational therapists also address feeding skills, sensory integration, motor development, environmental exploration, play skills, adaptive behavior, and interactions between a child and others (including caregivers and peers). Treatment is designed to address the cause of the weaknesses and improve function in those areas. Our clinicians are uniquely skilled and have experience in the areas of traditional OT, orthopedic, neurological, oral-motor, and sensory processing problems.
Physical therapy is identifying and maximizing quality of life and movement potential within the spheres of promotion, prevention, diagnosis, treatment/intervention, and rehabilitation. At Excel, physical therapy involves the evaluation and treatment of developmental delays, disease, and injury. These often interfere with the natural development process or ability of the child to interact and move within their environment. Treatments focus on improving gross and fine motor skills, balance and coordination, strength and endurance as well as cognitive and sensory integration. Many disorders can benefit from physical therapy treatment; a few of these are: Cerebral Palsy, Pervasive Developmental Delay, Attention Deficit Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, Down’s syndrome and Autism. Our physical therapists have years of pediatric treatment experience in the areas of orthopedic, neurological, and sensory processing problems.
