Treatment

EvaluationEvaluation findings and parent input will guide the development of your child’s individualized treatment plan. This plan will include measurable and functional goals designed to improve your child’s participation in daily activities at home, school, or in the community. Your licensed therapist will provide one-on-one treatment, while instructing you in home program activities to support therapy goals. At Jump Start Pediatric Therapy, we utilize evidence-based practice, incorporating research findings with clinical expertise. We draw on extensive training and experience to tailor treatment to your child’s specific needs and interests. Treatment will be designed to allow for success during every visit. Activities will constantly be modified to be challenging, but successful. In some cases, our therapists work in close partnership with a network of other healthcare and community providers to achieve the goals in your child’s treatment plan. If this is necessary, we will help to coordinate a referral to the appropriate healthcare professional or community service.
