Our group of dedicated professionals are linked in providing the best possible care to our clients.. The occupational and physical therapy skills that develop within properly functioning vestibular and proprioceptive systems relate directly to speech and language functioning in many ways, including fine motor movements, motor coordination and planning, auditory processing of sound, postural control, body alignment, and breath support.
A mutually supportive relationship between OTs, PTs, and SLPs, in which we share our knowledge and share our goals, will allow us to continue to learn from one another and more importantly, help to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children.
