Things to Keep in Mind when Choosing a Pediatric Speech Therapist, Pediatric Occupational Therapist or Pediatric Physical Therapist for your Child

You just found out your child might need pediatric therapy services, and chances are, your head is spinning with all the pediatric therapeutic options out there.
Choosing a pediatric therapist for your child is extremely personal, but here are a few things to keep in mind as you’re narrowing down your choices.

1.) Accreditation, Credentials and Certifications:

When choosing a pediatric therapist for your child, make sure the therapist has the credentialing and certifications that will be most beneficial to your child. Additionally, look for agencies that have an ACHC accreditation, which stands as a symbol of quality and excellence.

2.) How Therapy is Going to Fit in to Your Life:

Life is busy – there is no escaping that! Between work, school and social commitments, chances are you do not have a lot of spare time in your day. When choosing a pediatric therapy option for your child, think about your schedule and how you’re going to weave therapy into your lives. At Solace Pediatric Home Healthcare, all of our therapists travel to your home to provide pediatric  therapy to your child when it is most convenient for you.

3.) Techniques used to achieve the Most Optimal Results for your Child:

There are all sorts of methods that pediatric therapists use to work with your child, so think about how your child might respond to different techniques. At Solace Pediatric Home Healthcare, all of our pediatric therapists use evidence based activity and play therapy to help your child improve within their natural environment.

4.) Collaboration with Others:

To provide the most beneficial environment for your child, make sure the pediatric therapist you choose interacts with not only other therapists, but also teachers, medical professionals and daycare providers should there be a need.

5.) Trust your Gut:

At the end of the day, you know your child best. Whomever you choose, find a pediatric therapist that provides support for not only your child, but your family, too.
