Texarkana Therapy Center’s Pediatric Therapy Program is committed to helping children become empowered in their daily lives. We understand that receiving a new diagnosis or suspecting a developmental delay in your child can be scary. Texarkana Therapy Center is committed to making this process easy by working with your physician and using a collaborative approach with all therapy disciplines offered at TTC. Our number one priority is to see your child reach greater level of independence and gain the confidence they need in their daily lives.
Our Pediatric Therapy Program offers physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy for children from ages birth and up. Our speech, PT and OT programs consist of highly trained therapists that are knowledgeable about key milestones in development that affect children of all ages. We also provides a variety of specialty programs including feeding therapy, sensory-integration, academic skills program. ADHD-program, orthopedic injuries and aquatics.
Everyone wants to be heard and our Speech Pathologists and Speech Pathology Assistants work diligently to make this happen! We use strategies for each child’s particular challenge in order for them to feel more confident about communicating with others. Our pediatric therapy program for speech works on some of the following skills.
A child’s occupation is to play, learn, and grow. As Occupational therapists (OTs) specializing in pediatric therapy, we help children acquire the skills they need to perform the “occupations” of daily life to succeed in their homes, school environments, and communities. Our pediatric therapy program for OT works on some of the following skills.
Physical therapy addresses movement and mobility of the body. We work to prevent, improve, or manage a condition for short and long-term health benefits for our patients. PTs examine each patient and develop an individualized plan, using treatment techniques to promote movement, balance, and coordination, reduce pain, restore or gain function, and prevent or decrease the disability. Our pediatric therapy program for PT works on some of the following skills.
Our speech, physical and occupational therapy teams have several specialty programs. These programs provide additional expertise with specific certifications and experience. We highly encourage professional development and ongoing education among our staff members so that your children can be provided with the best and most personal care. Our goal in the end is the same as yours, seeing children become empowered and successful in all areas of their lives. Some of our specialty programs for pediatric therapy are included below.
Above all, TTC is dedicated to creating a fun and safe environment for children of all ages to reach their milestones in its pediatric therapy program. There is nothing greater than seeing a child meet their goals. Whether you have concerns for communication skills, motor skills, sensory processing, behavior, or feeding skills, our pediatric therapists are here to help you along the way. If you have any concerns regarding your child’s development it is important to act early. Schedule an appointment with your physician to discuss your concerns. We are also available to screen or evaluate your child to see if they may benefit for your therapeutic services at your request. We also provide a free online screening tool for ages 1-6 . You will be given a survey of age-appropriate milestones for speech, language, gross motor skills, fine motor skills and sensory processing. Afterwards you will be sent a free home program to try at home. If your child continues to show difficulty mastering these skills we recommend scheduling an appointment with your pediatrician to receive a referral for speech, physical, or occupational therapy.
