Pediatric Developmental Therapy

Developmental therapists focus on how a child is developing. Developmental therapists do not address one specific area but instead look at the child globally. Developmental therapists look at language and communication, social-emotion skills, behavior, self-help skills, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, and cognitive skills.

At Little Steps, we love children and wanted to make a special place for kids to heal. That place became the Little Steps in Glenview, Illinois.

Pediatric developmental therapy is a branch of therapy that looks at child at a global level. A pediatric developmental therapist at Little Steps evaluates your child’s strengths and challenges in their language, cognitive, socio-emotional, and motor development. The pediatric developmental therapist then strengthens the areas of development that may be slow to unfold by utilizing play and parent-education.

We strive to enhance your child’s development as an entire person, as well as your development as parents. Most importantly, you will learn about the significance of your own role as parents so that you can be the best advocate for your child and for yourself. Our goal at Little Steps is to empower you and providing you with information about how to get the most out of your pediatric developmental therapy services.
