Speech language pathologists, also called speech therapists, are trained in many areas, including speech, articulation, language, oral motor/feeding, cognition, and social skills. Depending on the child’s needs, a speech therapy session may include any of the above to help the child gain confidence and carry over intervention in the home. Read more about speech therapy here.
Occupational therapists help children learn or re-learn ways to be successful in every day activities, whether it’s learning fine motor, eye-hand coordination, or self-care skills. Occupational therapists also help children learn how to process sensory information as well as develop social and cognitive skills. Read more about occupational therapy here.
Physical therapists help children learn or re-learn gross motor skills, such rolling, crawling, cruising, walking, running, jumping, and balancing. Therapy is fun-filled and fast-paced, designed specifically to engage the child’s movement, strength, and coordination. Read more about physical therapy here.
AlphaBits Pediatric Therapy Services helps children achieve their true abilities and helps families understand how they can best meet the needs of their child.
“From the second week of his life, I have been taking my son (who has Down’s Syndrome) to Alpha Rehab. Because of the expert, caring, and proactive staff at Alpha, he has hit all his gross motor skills as would a typical child and many of his oral and fine motor benchmarks. I credit all this to Alpha’s loving work with him and their excellent communication with and training of us, his family.”~Carrie Crockett “How do I even begin to tell of all that Alpha Rehab has done for my son…My son, Toby McDonald, has Down’s Syndrome and was adopted from an orphanage in Ukraine in 2010. He was a month shy of his 4th birthday, weighed 18 pounds and was unable to walk or communicate in any way. I brought him into Alpha at the recommendation of a friend of mine, who had also adopted from Ukraine, in August of 2010, less than a month after being home. The genuine concern of the therapists touched my heart. You could see that this wasn’t just a “job” to them. My son has been going to Alpha now two times per week for a little over 2 years. He now RUNS inside and is eager to “play” with therapists!! He has learned close to 100 signs, which he uses to communicate his needs very effectively. He is also able to say many sounds now, including his own name!! He is able to undress himself and feed himself! You would not even recognize him as the same child we brought home 2 years ago. The love and compassion shown by ALL the therapists at Alpha has impacted his life, and mine, more than I can express with words. The patience that they possess is incredible. My son tends to be strong-willed at times, a skill that helped him survive in an orphanage for 4 years, but can become tiresome when working with him. I have never seen any of them lose their patience with him. Even my daughters have commented on their ability to remain calm with him. 🙂 As stated previously, it isn’t just a “job” to them. They are genuinely concerned for everyone, not as a “patient”, but as a person! The therapists at Alpha go above and beyond their job description. They even helped my son receive a bike designed specifically for him!! I would highly recommend Alpha Rehabilitation to ANYONE needing speech, occupational and/or physical therapy without ANY hesitation!!!”~Suzanne McDonald
