Pediatric and Developmental Physical Therapy

Every child grows and develops at their own pace, however delays in gross motor development may cause concern. Children use their bodies to explore, play, and gain independence. If they can’t do these things, they may feel frustrated or unhappy.

Our practices are intended to improve self esteem and empower children to participate at home, in school, and the community one ability at a time. Our therapists will find fun and creative ways to improve your child’s gross motor skills and improve their ability to perform functional daily activities.

Gross motor skills

Gross motor skills require whole body movement and involve the large (core stabilizing) muscles of the body to perform everyday functions. These are movements such as standing, walking, running, jumping, and sitting upright at the table. They also include eye-hand coordination skills such as throwing, catching, kicking, riding a bike, and swimming. All of these movements require coordination and strength. 
Children with gross motor difficulties commonly display:
-Avoidance or general disinterest in physical tasks
-Rush physical tasks (to mask difficulty or fatigue)
-Silly task performance of physical task they find challenging
-Bossiness in telling others how to do the physical task or play the game       without actively engaging themselves
