A child’s number one job is to play. Their ability to play with peers requires motor development, strength, balance, coordination, and endurance. Pediatric physical therapists at Children’s Therapy Works develop games and activities for children to encourage play and that work on each individual child’s needs. Climbing ladders to be ‘King of the World’ on top of the lofts, diving into the ball pit for toys and fun, swinging away as high as they can, jumping on different boxes and colors to save the animals, and noodle fights on top of the wobbly balance surfaces are just some of the many activities we play to develop needed skills.  A physical therapist’s greatest joy is seeing your child progress and carry over their skills learned in therapy with playtime at home with families and peers!
