Children are expected to reach certain milestones in their growing years. Sometimes these milestones are not met within the typical age range or not at all. We work closely with parents in identifying the unique developmental delays and situations using a wide range of techniques, strategies and approaches in order to help the child reach these milestones.
Is Your Child Experiencing Any of the Following Conditions?
Most of the parents that call us for help are relieved to have found a practice that understands their concerns, frustrations and anxieties when it comes to the development of their children. Some have been referred to so many health professionals which takes its toll not only on the parents but also on the child.
When parents first call us we make sure to have a thorough understanding of the concerns of the parents even before the first on-site evaluation. This provides most parents with the first signs of relief, knowing that there is someone who cares and who can actually help them.
If patients have some form of developmental or behavioral delay, we assess and perform an evaluation on which specific area needs attention, and then with the appropriate therapy program, develop those specific areas. We also look for their strengths and educate both the child and the parents on how to maximize these strengths.
We strongly believe that a natural, holistic approach is the best way to handle developmental delays in children. Our Pediatric Occupational Therapy programs make use of everyday things as well as specialized toys that make each session as enjoyable and as effective for the child as possible.
Developing the different areas, as well as highlighting the strengths that are unique in each child will bring out the skills needed to have confidence and a fulfilling life. Through these methods we have helped hundreds of New Jersey families bring out the full potential of their child with developmental or behavioral delays.

If you suspect your child manifesting any of these symptoms, it is best to consult an Occupational Therapist in order to minimize the long term effects that these conditions may bring. We can assess the level of performance by conducting a series of developmental and behavioral tests. Most of the time, with the correct program and with early detection, the condition can be totally eliminated. It is also worth knowing that we have a network of doctors, professionals and other resources in the community that can help in the treatment of their patients. These may include specialists such as physical therapists, speech pathologists, neurologists, among others.
A Family Matter
Aside from working with the child directly, the occupational therapist works closely with the parents and other family members. They sometimes can also get in touch with the school to gather input from teachers. It is important for everyone surrounding the child to collaborate in providing information that might be needed.
Sometimes family members themselves might have unknowingly contributed to the disorder, which can be common in for example in anxiety and discipline issues. Working closely with the therapist will help in discovering what may be the root cause of the child’s symptoms.
Occupational therapists also provide long term monitoring of the growth of the child. As they grow and move through the different stages of development, there are significant changes that they go through such as going through kindergarten and reaching different age milestones. A good therapist will practically watch your child grow, and make sure to do everything for them to have the best chances of a successful life.
If You have any concerns about your child’s growth and development, we are here to help.
