We are at a new location!All of us at Comprehensive Therapy Children's Center are happy to announce that we have moved to our new location (across the parking lot) at 200 Riverstone Drive, Suite B, Canton, Georgia 30114. We look forward to seeing you at our new location very soon!
We are a multidisciplinary, outpatient facility that specializes in occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech & language therapy for children with special needs. We have been providing pediatric therapy to our patients since 1989 and have been in our current location in Canton, Georgia since 2004. It is here that our therapists treat many diagnoses, including but not limited to, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Autism/PDD/Asperger’s, neurological disorders, sensory integration disorders, feeding problems, Apraxia, Torticollis, CAPD, and developmental delays. All of our therapists are state licensed and have pediatric experience. Visit “Our Therapists” page for a detailed background on each of our highly qualified therapists.
We know that each child is unique and therefore their treatment plan must be developed to meet their individual needs. We integrate learning through play in a nurturing and fun environment. We believe that your child, their therapist, and the family unit are all part of the therapy. When your child is provided with a new tool or technique from their therapist, we want that skill to be encouraged and worked on at home. It is in this team environment that we achieve our greatest successes.
Perhaps your doctor has discussed their concerns with you, maybe you have noticed that your child is not able to communicate with their peers, or your child’s preschool/elementary teacher has made you aware of their concerns. However it is brought to your attention, early intervention is the key to success with many developmental delays.
For an extensive list of Developmental Milestones, refer to our “Parent Resources” page. As always, if you are having concerns about your child’s development, your first step should be to discuss this with your pediatrician or family doctor.
Below are some of the skills therapists look at in each defined skill-set; of course, skills are categorized by age appropriateness:
- Fine Motor Skills reaching & grasping, moving objects between hands, building, cutting, eating, buttoning, dressing, drawing, tying shoes, tracing
- Gross Motor Skills rolling, crawling, walking, climbing, various “ball play” activities, running, skipping, jumping
- Speech & Language Skills receptive & expressive language, functional communication, social language, auditory processing, articulation,
fluency, feeding, swallowing, oral motor skills
If you feel that your child may need to start therapy, or if you are changing therapists, please call our office and make an appointment for an evaluation. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will walk you through the process. We would appreciate the opportunity to meet your child and discuss a treatment plan that would work best for them. Whether your child works with one therapist or several, our conveniently located Canton office can meet those needs in one central location. Our “Getting Started” page has a checklist as well as downloadable forms you may print to get the process started.
At Comprehensive Therapy Children’s Center, we look forward to helping your child achieve their full potential.
