Pediatric Therapy

HealthPRO Pediatrics recognizes that the most effective approach to pediatric therapy involves placing the family at the center of the process. We are committed to supporting both children + families at our North Tampa clinic. Our team works closely with both your child and your family to help your child overcome obstacles and succeed in various settings, such as home, school, and the community. Our team is comprised of speech-language pathologists (SLPs), and occupational therapists (OTs), who are dedicated to developing individualized, evidence-based, and family-centered treatment plans to support your child. We offer various pediatric therapy services, and our approach ensures seamless coordination of care among all your child’s therapy providers.

Speech therapy focuses on improving communication skills by developing and enhancing techniques through verbal language, sign language, or language using assistive technology. Through speech therapy, your child can effectively interact with family and friends and address the function of facial muscles and structures necessary for speech, feeding, and swallowing.

At our pediatric clinic in North Tampa,  our speech therapists work with children of all ages, ranging from infants to teenagers. They can address a broad spectrum of speech and language issues, including but not limited to, articulation disorders, stuttering, voice disorders, receptive and expressive language disorders. Our therapists use a diverse range of techniques and approaches to help children improve their speech and language skills. These approaches may include play-based therapy, language drills, and social communication interventions.

Speech Therapy Can Include:
• Expressive language/Receptive language
• Auditory processing disorders
• Articulation + phonological processes
• Late talkers, preschool language disorders
• Augmentative + alternative communication
• Childhood apraxia of speech + dysarthria
• Selective mutism
• Pragmatic language disabilities + social skills
• Orofacial myofunctional disorders

Occupational therapy helps children improve sensory, cognitive, physical or motor skills in addition to addressing social, psychological or environmental factors that may affect a child’s development. Occupational therapy focuses on helping children become independent with daily activities such as playing, eating, dressing, practicing handwriting, or maintaining balance.

Our highly skilled and compassionate pediatric occupational therapists work with children  in a variety of activities that are designed to improve their motor skills, coordination, sensory processing, and cognitive abilities. These activities may include playing with toys and games, drawing and coloring, working on puzzles, and engaging in other creative activities.

Occupational therapy can include:
• Pre-writing skills
• Cognitive skills
• Sensory integration
• Fine motor skills (grasping a toy or pencil)
• Balance + coordination
• Assessing or adjusting equipment
• Visual motor skills
• Daily routines (bathing, dressing, brushing teeth)
• Feeding techniques
• Oral motor coordination
