Occupational Therapy & Physical Therapy
Occupational Therapy is a specialty therapy field that helps people in all areas of developmental and life skills including sensory processing, sensorimotor, perceptual motor, fine motor and gross motor, visual motor and visual perception, mental health, cognitive skills, executive function skills, behavior management, social-emotional needs and activities of daily living.
Physical Therapy is a specialty therapy field that help people develop functional mobility, strength, endurance and improved health. Pediatric physical therapy focuses on support the trajectory of gross motor development including building lower extremity and core strength, postural control, gait patterns, balance, coordination, improved motor planning, play skills and functional navigation of all environments. Physical therapy may also support acquisition or fit of mobility devices (wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, etc.) or orthotics.
At Mighty Minds and Muscles, our practice is based on a neurodevelopmental approach. We strongly believe in strengthening the foundational sensory processing, neurological reflexes and visual skills that support higher level functioning tasks such as: academics, behavior, socialization and self-confidence. We believe in a team-approach including collaborating with one's school and the whole family.
We offer a full multi-disciplinary approach with O.T., P.T. *Speech Therapy and Academic Coaching (SETSS/SEIT) under one roof.
