Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapy of Hudson Valley (PPOT) is a state-of-the-art, out-patient private practice that provides innovative physical and occupational therapy to children from birth through adolescence. We help children who are not meeting their developmental milestones; have medical or neurological conditions that can be improved with therapy; have been injured and need rehabilitation; and children who already receive therapy at school, but may require additional help to meet their goals.
Our therapists have dedicated their careers specializing in pediatrics. We have served as advocates and partner with children and their parents in neonatal intensive care units, Early Intervention, acute care, rehabilitation centers, BOCES, and the local school systems. Our training continues to evolve to keep pace with the ever-evolving techniques in pediatric physical and occupational therapy.
Our therapists are skilled at assessing your child’s abilities relative to everyday tasks and behaviors to develop goals for your child’s specific needs, whether they require physical or occupational therapy. Our treatment programs are designed to help children achieve their personal best to enjoy the highest quality of life possible.
Our 2,000 square foot facility is equipped with state-of-the-art specialty equipment that will encourage your child to fully engage in their treatment exercises and activities. Our compassionate and child-friendly team help you child feel at ease when entering our gym and look forward to all of the fun activities planned for them. We encourage parental observation of each session and take the time to enable parents to play a part in their child’s improvement through at-home activities that can be done in-between treatment sessions.
Our mission is to help children achieve their personal best to enjoy the highest quality of life possible. We create a compassionate, supportive environment where we enable parents to participate in their child’s improvement, advocate for the right services for every child, and celebrate each success along the way.
