Pediatric Therapy Network

At Home with PTN

At PTN, we believe that pediatric therapy is most effective when it happens at home. By working with children in their own space – their living room, yard, classroom, or even community pool – children can relax and feel more confident. When therapy happens in familiar places around daily routines it’s easier for parents, siblings, and other members of the child’s community to become active participants in the therapeutic process.

Dedicated

We guide your child’s development in a playful and encouraging way, allowing them to meet their highest potential while boosting their confidence and self-esteem.

Compassionate

We listen to your concerns and take them seriously.  Together, we’ll create a plan that works best for your family, your child, and their future.

Community

We collaborate with your child’s teachers, pediatricians, and other team members to help ensure that your child receives consistent support.

We have been through lots of therapies and therapists over the years but we cannot imagine life without PTN!

Pediatric Therapy
What can our family expect?

A highly skilled therapist will visit your home to perform an individualized evaluation catered to your concerns. If you have multiple concerns, we can provide therapists from different specialties at the same evaluation. They will share the results with you and together, we can develop a plan that works for your child.

Pediatric Therapy
When is payment due?

We will perform an insurance verification on your behalf prior to initiation of services in order to make sure you are aware of expected out of pocket costs. We will bill your insurance for services and balance bill you for any patient balance on a monthly basis. No payment is due at the time of service. We offer generous discounts should your insurance company deny coverage.

Pediatric Therapy
How quickly can we get started?

There is typically no wait for services. Evaluations can generally be scheduled within a week from initial referral or inquiry, depending on overall availability and need. Ongoing therapy can usually be initiated shortly after the initial evaluation, should you and your therapists determine that therapy is a good course of action.

…helped us reach and exceed our goals, all the while being a consummate professional, an untiring advocate, a fantastic listener, and a valuable resource.

PTN Core Beliefs

At Pediatric Therapy Network, we believe that pediatric therapy is most effective when delivered in a child’s natural environment and built around positive, playful interactions that children enjoy and parents can easily emulate. Grounded in a philosophy of evidence-based care and professionalism, our therapists work with each other and with you to help your child strengthen their skills and self-esteem.  Like most things in life, therapy is most effective when it’s fun!

Bright IdeaBright Idea

When it comes to teaching your toddler to talk try to use fewer questions and more models to expand their vocabulary.  Instead of asking “What is this?” or “Can you say ‘duck’?” model the vocabulary for your child.  Try this:

  • Hold up a toy duck and say “duck!” or “quack quack!”
  • Say “Look! Ducks!” when you’re at a pond with ducks.
  • Talk about what you see, “a mommy duck!” or what the ducks are doing.
