How Our Therapists Work Together

Therapies, whether occupational, physical, or speech, may seem to overlap. The human body is so interconnected, redundancies happen naturally!

 

Typically, physical therapy treats the lower body, occupational therapy treats the upper body, and speech therapy focuses on treating the head and neck. All three areas of therapy are related to one another and effect each other, as there is rarely one problem area that does not effect other areas of development. If your child has qualified in one area of therapy, it is common for your therapist to refer you to another type of therapy as they are so closely connected.

 

Our therapists work together to maximize the functional progress your child can make! Therapy Monkey staff use a multi-disciplinary approach to ensure carry-over of new skills and to improve success in participation across a variety of settings such as home, school, community, etc.

Who Are Occupational Therapists?

Old Paper Transparent_edited.jpg

Occupational therapists help people across the lifespan basically do what they want to and need to do.  For children, their main jobs are to play, socialize with other children, and to be independent so they can eventually function well in society. If anything related makes these difficult for your child, it is fair game for an OT to address! OTs help children perform “jobs” they may find challenging by addressing sensory, social, behavioral, motor, and environmental issues.

 

One of our OTs will evaluate your child’s current skills related to play, school performance, and daily activities, comparing them to other children in the same age group. Using these results, your OT will work directly with you to develop a customized plan to address your primary concerns!

Who Are Physical Therapists?

Old Paper Transparent_edited.jpg

Physical therapists are concerned with a child’s ability to engage in movement activities like crawling, walking, running, playing games, and sports. PTs realize a child’s primary job is to play! Physical therapists also help children who rely on mobility devices learn to navigate safely and more effectively.

 

One of our PTs will evaluate your child’s current skills related to mobility, coordination, endurance, strength, and balance, comparing them to other children in the same age group. Using these results, your PT will work directly with you to develop a customized plan to address your primary concerns!

Our physical therapists assess joint range of motion, muscle strength, neurological function, motor control, and posture to improve a child’s balance, coordination, strength, and endurance.

This may include developmental receptive/expressive language delays, social communication disorders, articulation disorders, stuttering/fluency disorders, apraxia of speech, and feeding/swallowing disorders.
