BSA also has a Pediatric Therapy program. Our team consists of pediatric therapists from physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy that develop individualized programs to optimize development and address rehabilitation needs. Working as a team, their goal is to improve the quality of life for young patients by helping them reach age- and condition-appropriate goals. Our therapists are trained to be more sensitive to the emotional, psychological and physical needs of children and they incorporate play into therapy sessions.
