Our mission at Pediatric Therapy Specialists is to foster a safe, fun environment for each child to learn, play and explore. Through individualized and group therapies, Pediatric Therapy Specialists empowers the child to meet the challenges, joys and endless possibilities in play, academics, and self care.
About Pediatric Therapy Specialists:
Founded in 2001 in its current location by occupational therapists Julie Patrick Bonham and Tasha Malhotra, and expanded to include physical therapy in 2005 to meet the needs of our many families. Pediatric Therapy Specialists was created on the following principles:
- To offer a play-based approach to promote social-emotional development, while promoting family centered care in a nurturing, child friendly environment. We believe that parents and other caregivers must be participants to enable the child to reach his or her full potential.
- To improve our clients’ ability to engage in age-appropriate developmental skills and to encourage maximum performance to facilitate learning and quality of life.
- To offer a collaborative approach with psychologists, other medical professionals, social workers, teachers, school therapists and other community based providers in order to meet your child’s needs at home and within the community.
