Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) October 28, 2010
Pediatric Possibilities, an Occupational Therapy clinic located in Raleigh, North Carolina that provides treatment for children and adolescents with difficulty processing and integrating sensory information, is celebrating 5 years of exceptional service with an open house. During the first week of November, families and related professionals will be able to visit the clinic, try out some of the equipment, meet the therapists, and learn more about the services.
“‘Making it Possible’ is our mission,” says founder Dawn Rohlik. “We provide Occupational Therapy to young people in order to improve the skills needed for play, activities of daily living and social interaction. We recognize the developmental milestones that are normally attained at each stage in a child's life and we encourage and motivate children and their family to reach these goals within a playful environment.”
An occupational therapist since 1983, Dawn opened Pediatric Possibilities as a solo therapist in 2005 in order to give more individualized attention to the children and their families. After a year and a half, Dawn hired additional therapists and support staff, each committed to helping families learn to connect with their child more fully at home and in the community.
Pediatric Possibilities now employs five part-time OTs and has a speech therapist who works closely with it as well. Seeing over 50 children each week, the therapists use play-based sessions to develop proper sensory processing and integration, thereby improving the child’s fine and gross motor development. “My daughter has made significant improvements in motor skills and connectedness,” says a pleased parent. “We love that Dawn and her therapists use DIR/Floortime and similar play-based techniques to connect with the children. It is just what our daughter needs.”
Occupational Therapy can target skills needed for play, activities for daily living, social interaction, school readiness, and school performance. Our services include evaluation, consultation, and treatment.
