How do you know if PT can help your child?
Our Physical Therapy Screening Tool is a great way to determine if pediatric PT is right for your child. A child's motor growth and development occurs on a spectrum with general guidelines for development in certain age ranges. These skills begin very basic including head control, rolling and sitting and progress to walking, running, jumping and up further to bike riding and balance tasks. Sometimes our children experience difficulty with these movement skills along the journey to adulthood. PT can help you and your child meet life's challenges. You may benefit from physical therapy intervention if your child has experienced or is experiencing any of the issues below:
- Did your child meet developmental milestones on time?
- Does your child seem clumsy or uncoordinated when playing alone or with peers(taking longer than expected to learn motor skills, bumps into other people or objects in the environment, falls often, etc) ?
- Does your child have difficulty following verbal directions or completing steps of routine tasks?
- Does your child avoid or not perform activities like swings, slides, hesitate on stairs or uneven surfaces or go up/down on hands or bottom?
