Pediatric Physical Therapy

Our pediatric physical therapy staff works with your child and family to improve the range of motion, strength. flexibility, and movement patterns, while performing activities that look like play. Our goal is to help make everyday activities easier for kids. Our innovative playground gym has an array of activities to further develop your child’s physical abilities. In our safe and enjoyable environment, children can feel comfortable and excited to learn.

We use exercise and play to strengthen muscles, boost coordination, and improve your child’s overall mobility so that they can perform everyday skills. G ross motor skills provide the foundation for not only ball sports and leisure activities found in childhood but also for more refined motor skills such as sitting at a table to eat or perform fine motor activities and standing with balance to get dressed. With age-appropriate equipment and play-based techniques, we inspire creativity and make movement natural and fun while also developing these foundational motor skills.

We are here to support you and we want your child to feel capable and strong. Our pediatric physical therapists celebrate with you over each physical milestone your child makes, however large or small. Some of the areas treated include:

  • Developmental activities
  • Movement and mobility
  • Strengthening
  • Motor learning
  • Balance and coordination
  • Recreation, play, and leisure
  • Endurance
  • Daily care activities and routines
  • Equipment design, fabrication, and fitting
  • Tone management
  • Assistive technology
  • Posture, positioning, and lifting
  • Orthotics

Our physical therapist is licensed, a member of the American Physical Therapy Association, and has worked for over a decade as a physical therapist. Our physical therapy philosophy is to take a collaborative approach, working with the family and the child to tailor the therapeutic approach toward their specific needs, creating activities that address many different aspects of the child’s development, and teaching families the tools they require to support their child’s physical needs at home and in the community including:

  • Positioning during daily routines and activities
  • Adapting toys for play
  • Expanding mobility options
  • Using equipment effectively
  • Facilitating safety for the home and community
  • Accessing community programs and resources
  • Providing information on the child’s physical and health care needs
  • Supporting family caregiving
  • Smoothing transitions from early childhood to school and into adult life

We work directly with clients and their families to create individualized plans to address their current areas of need. If you would like to find out more about our services and how we can assist your family today, please give us a call at 408-865-1365.

Physical Therapy Services and Fees

Infant Screening
  • $50 for infants up to 12 months of age
  • This 30-minute developmental screening includes a checklist of findings and recommendations.
Consultation without Report
  • $360 for 1st hour
  • Additional time or follow-up session(s) at $180/50 minutes (prorated)
  • This is a very specific, limited consultation, without report (not appropriate for obtaining insurance coverage for ongoing treatment). Findings and recommendations will be given verbally. Additional follow-up sessions on a short-term/infrequent basis are available at the rate of $180/50 minutes.
Evaluations with Report
  • Minimum $525
  • $360 per hour for time spent, including the following services:
    • Direct Assessment
    • Records review, and telephone consultation with other team members to gain information about the child (as requested).
  • This cost includes a written report and half-hour parent/team conference. A Comprehensive Evaluation typically runs 1 hour and costs $525. If additional services or consultation are requested (e.g., lengthy team meeting), the charge may be higher.
Individual Therapy
  • $180 per 50 minute session or $90 per 25 minute session
  • Individual therapy is 50 minutes of direct contact with you and/or your child per treatment session or twice a week at 25 minutes per session. At times, there may be information that you or the therapist needs to share. As your child’s therapy is scheduled for 50 minutes, you can request that your therapist set aside time during the treatment to discuss any concerns or questions you may have. Some children require additional time for transitioning to leave after the session and some sessions require additional clean-up time following the session. Time will also be used for the therapist to document what was done during the treatment session. The insurance receipt for each full session will therefore be for 60 minutes total time (or 30 minutes for 25 minute session). If you arrive late, your receipt will reflect the reduced time that services were provided.
  • If written documentation (a report) is required more frequently than every 6 months, there will be an additional charge of $180 for the report.
First Treatment Session
  • Only $360
  • When an assessment was done at another facility, a one time, first session charge is at a higher rate to account for the additional time required by the therapist to review records and reports and to plan your child’s therapy. If the assessment was done at this facility, there is no extra charge for the first treatment session. It will be charged at the $180 per session rate.
Deposit for Final 2 Treatments
  • $360
  • A deposit of $360 is to be paid within one month of beginning therapy. It provides payment for the child’s final two sessions at the time of discharge from therapy assuming that a full two sessions notice has been given before ending treatment.
Re-Assessment
  • $360 for 1 testing session + progress report +30 min parent meeting
  • Retesting can be done to update levels of function and compare current status with previous scores, to identify areas of progress and any continued areas of need. This may be done using standardized testing and/or clinical observations depending on the needs of the child. A re-assessment will be billed at the rate of $360 as the therapist will perform individualized testing, scoring, report write-up and the parent meeting. Should the parent meeting last more than the alotted 30 minutes, additional time will be billed at the prorated rate of $180/hour
Meetings/Off-Site
  • $195/hour
  • Rate is for out of the office, local travel (additional charges for more than 15 miles). We want to work in a collaborative manner with parents and members of your intervention team. At times, attendance at meetings (home visit, team meeting, IEP, etc.) may be appropriate. We are happy to try to arrange our schedule (if possible) to participate in such meetings, but must charge for the time to attend the meeting.
Parent Meetings
  • $180/hour
  • Once treatment has begun, parent meetings are a valuable way for the parents and the therapist to meet and discuss the child’s progress and continued areas of need, discuss changes in the child’s life, stay abreast of current family concerns, and collaborate on strategies to maximize progress in the home setting. We recommended a 30-60 minute parent conference annually. Parent meetings are billed at the hourly rate and can be in addition to or in lieu of a regular treatment session.
