Did you know that Hope can provide physical, occupational, speech and neuropsychology services for children 21 and under? Our in-house therapists can provide outpatient support in school, at home or at our facility.
Occupational Therapy helps a child develop the fine motor skills needed for activities in daily life such as playing with toys, writing and cutting with scissors. Licensed therapists also teach adapted techniques and use of adaptive equipment to accomplish everyday tasks such as eating with utensils and dressing oneself. Occupational Therapy services are available at the Children's Development Center in Williamsport, the Hope regional office in Danville, at home or in school.
Physical Therapy focuses on a child’s basic movement, balance and coordination skills. Our physical therapists design individualized programs to develop and improve a child’s motion, strength, balance, mobility and movement skills. Physical Therapy services are available at the Children's Development Center in Williamsport, the Hope regional office in Danville, at home or in school. Please call our Children's Development Center at 570-326-0565 for more information.
Speech-Language Therapy focuses on treating a variety of speech-language delays, articulation and hearing loss, stuttering, voice disorders and feeding/swallowing difficulties. Speech-Language Therapy services are available at the Children's Development Center in Williamsport.
A Neuropsychologist looks at how a child’s brain is influencing their behavior. A thorough evaluation is done that looks at a child’s strengths and weaknesses in order to properly diagnose and treat psychological and behavioral problems. Strategies to balance a child’s strengths and weaknesses are developed based on the findings of the evaluation and the needs of that child. Neuropsychological services are under the direction of Dr. Richard Dowell and are available on the campus of our Children's Development Center in Williamsport.
