Our Therapist Teams
All of our clinicians are licensed, and they continually advance
their expertise through formal coursework and professional networking.
Our therapist teams provide individualized and age-appropriate
approaches to therapy. These teams coordinate the child’s care with the
family, recognizing that the family is the center of the child’s life.
- Occupational therapists help infants and children
develop or regain play and life skills. Individualized treatment
addresses fine motor and daily living skills such as writing and
drawing, getting dressed, playing and eating.
- Physical therapists address developmental and gross
motor abilities such as walking, running and jumping. Treatment may
include building strength, increasing flexibility and improving balance
- Speech-language pathologists focus on language and
communication. Language development, articulation, augmentative
communication, cognitive development, behavior modification, feeding and
swallowing are areas that may be addressed.
- Audiologists address hearing needs of infants and children such as hearing screenings and specialized hearing devices to aid hearing.
Our clinicians possess specialized training in a number of areas including:
- Aquatic Therapy – The buoyancy and warmth of the water facilitate a child’s progress in unique ways, and working in the pool makes therapy fun!
- Autism Social Group – Weekly sessions target a
child’s social skills in a group setting with games, role-playing and
crafts. Children learn appropriate peer interaction skills.
- Casting and Splinting – These techniques may be
recommended to improve or maintain range of motion, provide extra
support to a joint or prevent deformity.
- Cochlear Implant and Aural Therapy – Intensive auditory and speech training is provided for children following cochlear implant surgery for hearing loss.
- Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy (CIMT) – CIMT
focuses intensive therapy on a child’s arm that has been affected by
hemiplegia or brachial plexus injury while the use of the unaffected arm
- Feeding Team – This interdisciplinary team includes
pediatric physician specialists, nursing, and pediatric therapies to
provide services to children with feeding difficulties.
- Hand Writing Without Tears – This is a camp for
improving legibility. Fun-filled sessions integrate both fine and gross
motor play while improving hand writing skills.
- Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) – Many
St.Vincent pediatric therapists have completed extensive training in
NDT, an advanced therapeutic approach used in working with children who
have movement difficulties related to central nervous system insults.
- Sensory Integration – Children with sensory
integration difficulties are guided through therapeutic activities that
challenge their ability to respond appropriately to sensory stimuli.
