Speech Therapy

We look at the quality of a child’s speech/language for example, their pronunciation and articulation, their ability to communicate their needs, their ability to chew and swallow food properly, and their families concerns. Speech Therapists are concerned with helping children reach their full developmental potential and realizing their full range of sounds and communication abilities to improve their quality of life.

Aidan

“Aidan really loves his PECS and always looks forward to using them. I was worried it would be hard for him to comprehend the different pictures and retain them all, but he took to them immediately and remembers their meaning better than I do! He loves having the power to pick something and attach it to his board and really thrives on the excited reinforcement I give him when he does a task correctly. We are so grateful for Miss Stephanie and the extra work she did to create the PECS board and all the pictures for us! Thank you!”

-Josh Ritter, Parent of Aidan.
Mauro with Family

“Thank you very much to our therapists for their dedication and support during all this time that online therapy has been provided. Thanks to this, our son has managed to continue his development and improvement of language skills and we have noticed constant progress that is greatly attributed to the continuation of his therapies in a virtual way. His therapists have handled this teaching modality in the best way, thank you very much Manny & Gabby!”

From the parents of Mauro Waldo-Tamariz; Marco Waldo & Melissa Tamariz

"I cannot say thank you enough and express my appreciation to Miss Mary. The work and effort she has done is incredible. My daughter was born with congenital muscular torticollis and began therapy when she was 4-month-old. Miss Mary is amazing and a true professional. She had an incredible rapport with my daughter and always made her comfortable even when she was in pain. She always finds entertaining ways for my daughter to enjoy her sessions. While working on various exercises, she sings and plays with Nina. Very gentle and caring. She also taught me stretches and exercises, and many helpful tips for home. Miss Mary has an important part of my daughter’s progress and I hope other children will have the opportunity to benefit from her services as well.

Forever grateful, Tamta-Mother of 6-month Nina"

“Kaden Taylor has been doing Telemedicine visits with Progressive Pediatric Therapy since Corona-virus started. Mary, Teresa, Cristina and Joan are working above and beyond with Kaden as if we were going to the clinic. At home, Kaden has his stander, gait trainer, and activity chair that we use to transition into different activities. He has a floor mat set up with plenty of toys and exercise balls. We do painting projects, water play, food play and play with his hands in shaving cream and beans. He is improving everyday and I am so grateful to his therapists. Virtual therapy has been a blessing and I appreciate all the help and guidance for my little guy.”

Shannon Taylor, Mother of Kaden Taylor

“My son struggles with sensory processing, visual perceptual skills, and motor planning and has been participating in the Learning Without Tears handwriting program with his occupational therapist via telehealth for ONLY 3 MONTHS. Before he started with occupational therapy he cried over writing a single word. Writing one sentence took him an hour of meltdowns. He was self-conscious and second guessed every motor movement. His letters were backwards, he struggled to write on the lines, he wrote bottom to top and right to left, he used capital and lowercase letters inconsistently, the pressure on the pencil was too light, his letters were spaced incorrectly, and he had difficulty stabilizing the paper with his other hand. We had been working on letter formation and writing for years and had not made improvement. His teacher recommended occupational therapy to address these concerns and NOW look at this improvement! This picture says it all! Yesterday instead of calling his friend to come over and play he REQUESTED TO WRITE a letter to mail...I couldn't believe it and had to share this success story! Thank you Progressive Pediatric Therapy! I can only imagine the improvement he will continue to make!”

Patient of Kathryn R. OT

“My 17 year old son has been with Progressive Pediatric Therapies since their beginning in WPB. They have ALWAYS been professional and accommodating. They are a fantastic, dedicated group of therapists that are using all our community’s resources, and their expertise, for the good of our children. When they aren’t working, they are researching new methods, continuing their educations, and volunteering with non-for profits that directly affect their patients quality of life. We are confident that because of PPT, our son is able to reach milestones that we never thought he would achieve.”

“Progressive Pediatric Therapy is a great place to take your kids for therapy. Staff is very friendly and accomodating. I took my child to several other places for therapy, but it was never a good fit with my daughter. My daughter's speech therapist, Margie, has found a great way to work with my daughter and has a lot of progress! Great place! I recommend it to everyone!”

“If I could give them 10 stars. I did feeding therapy with Nicole at progressive therapy for a year with my son. They were great, and helped a lot. He didn't know how to chew and didn't want to eat at all, and now he is eating great like a normal child. Thanks Nicole for your patience and for teaching my son how to eat. You are the best.”
