Pediatric occupational therapists help children develop motor skills, sensory-motor skills and visual-motor skills. Occupational therapy and Speech therapy are interconnected and they both treat the upper body where Speech therapy focuses on treating the jaws, lips, tongue and throat.
A child’s role in life is to play, learn and interact with other children of his/her age. Our Pediatric Occupational therapists evaluate the current status of the children related to their daily activities and strive to make therapy sessions feel like play.
To help children develop the necessary physical, cognitive, and sensory skills, our Pediatric occupational therapists and Speech therapists often work closely together to maximize the progress.
We at PediGym, work closely together with the child along with the family members to help them reach their maximum potential. As the therapy progresses, they gradually learn to participate independently at home, school and society.

Kids won’t feel a thing when using the Kinesio tape
It might feel a bit itchy and uncomfortable when applying the tape; we suggest you keep it for three days for most total effects. Once the tape is removed, it does not stick to the skin. Removing the rape is easy when it’s wet; however, we tend to apply olive oil on the tap and let it soak in.
