About Our Services
More Than A Gym looks at each child as a whole to treat from a medical, community, home and school-based perspectives, creating a more well-rounded, 3-dimensional and customized treatment plan.
Pediatric Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy are highly specialized fields, which not all offices are equipped to accommodate. Here, at More Than A Gym, we only work with the pediatric population…all components of it! Including the following impairments: neurological, orthopedic, chromosomal, low muscle tone, overall motor delays, Sensory Processing Disorder, Vestibular, Dyspraxia, Aphasia, Apraxia, Dysphasia, Dysgraphia, feeding aversion, ocular motor difficulties, Autism, ADHD, etc.
We pride ourselves on staying up to date with the latest evidenced based practice/ research (i.e treadmill training, e-stim/ biofeedback, taping, Theratoging, mirror box therapy, NDT, ocular motor therapy, sensory diets, SOS feeding therapy, PROMPT therapy, ADL training, etc).
