Our Speech Therapy Services
Motor Speech Therapy
PEDIATRIC OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY
Occupational therapy is skilled treatment in which the therapist and patient work in developing skills for daily living. While physical therapy focuses on gross motor skills, occupational therapy addresses fine motor skills. For children, our OT’s will assist in developing the new skills they will need for learning, playing, and growing. Therapy could address issues involving:
Playing with toys
Poor hand-eye coordination
Play and social skills
Some children are more sensitive or less sensitive than other children to the stimuli they receive from their senses. Individuals that have problems trying to receive, organize, and process information from one or all of the senses have a sensory processing disorder. At Dymond Speech & Rehab., P.A., we have therapists experienced in working with children who have sensory integration dysfunction.
Teletherapy is providing therapy through a live video connection, over the internet. We provide the same treatment as you would in person; it's just done through a computer! It’s made a big difference for many of our patients, and is provided with the highest level of excellence. With this service, we ensure all details are simple, seamless and handled in a timely manner. Whenever you work with Dymond Speech & Rehab PA, you can trust that you’re in great hands.

"We searched for over a year to find somewhere that had sensory-based therapy that accepted our healthcare. I am very happy with the progress both our children have made with Dymond. They are professional, innovative, caring, and thorough. I highly recommend their services and the office support is wonderful as well."

"Put simply, we could not be more thrilled with the Dymond Clinic. From the warm and friendly environment to the competent and dedicated therapists; the total experience has been positive. Even the office staff could not have been more accommodating in meeting our scheduling needs. My daughter has benefited immensely from the therapy she has received.
