If you have concerns or suspect that your child may have delays, please have your physician fax a referral to 479-363-6763 so that we can schedule an evaluation. You can also contact our office to speak with a Physical or Occupational Therapist if you have additional questions or concerns.

Pediatric Services We Offer

We make learning fun and something every child can look forward to. Our facility caters to a child’s imagination and provides them with the stimulating environment they need to thrive. No matter what area of development your child needs help with, they are sure to have fun and make memories throughout their journey at Wolf Pediatric.

Occupational Therapy

A child’s earliest years are filled with new stimulations and novel experiences that drive his or her cognitive, social, and physical growth. The beginning years of life are a critical time; but if a child is delayed or restricted in development, they may struggle to develop the skills they need to thrive. Occupational Therapy can give children the support they need to develop to their full potential. Early intervention is a collective of therapeutic and support services that help children with disabilities or those who are at risk of developing them later in life.

Pediatric Physical Therapy

Pediatric Physical Therapy helps children learn to successfully and independently perform gross motor skills and functional mobility skills. A child gains a greater form of independence and a higher sense of self-esteem by developing these skills. Pediatric Physical Therapy also addresses muscle imbalances and weaknesses in children. A variety of treatment interventions are used to promote overall wellness and facilitate age-appropriate gross motor development.

Speech Therapy

Communication is key to helping a child develop and navigate the world around them. When a child struggles to use language and communicate effectively, Speech Therapy can help. Whether your child struggles with stuttering or to articulate words and understand language, we can develop a Speech Therapy program that addresses their needs and gets them on track. Speech Therapy is also beneficial for children with oral feeding problems, autism, hearing impairments, and cognitive delays.

Child Milestones

Many parents are uncertain if their child has a developmental delay. Let our clinic be a beneficial resource for all parents. Our team of licensed therapists can clinically evaluate any child using standardized assessments to determine if they meet the criteria for skilled therapy services.
