We’re all about kids…
Kids on the Move is dedicated to serving children of all ages with rehabilitation needs. We provide physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech-language therapy services to children from birth to 21 years of age. Our goal is to help children function to their maximum potential whether at home, in school or in the community. We are committed to providing family centered care that is based on the individual needs of each child. We work closely with families, schools and other community resources to ensure that the total needs of the child are met.
Our pediatric-trained therapists tailor therapy to each child’s developmental stage and individual needs for the most effective results. We provide both clinical and home-based services as well as school consultations.
Occupational Therapy – Occupational Therapy utilizes a child’s “occupation” of play, self-care, school and community activities to promote greater independence throughout life. Our therapists focus on development and promote independence in the areas of fine motor, self-care, perceptual, cognitive and social skills and adaptive technology.
Physical Therapy – Physical Therapy is the art and science of using exercises and activities to promote wellness, detect impairments and improve function. Our Physical Therapists strive to help children with a multitude of diagnoses improve strength, balance, coordination, and endurance so they can function to their full potential in all aspects of their lives.
Speech Therapy – Kids on the Move’s ASHA-certified and state licensed Speech-Language Pathologists serve children who exhibit a wide range of diagnoses and disabilities. We promote the development of functional communication within the home and community, as well as address feeding, swallowing, and oral motor deficits, social language skills, peer interaction and developmental play.
Kids on the Move is committed to working with families to find the necessary funding needed for therapy. A variety of funding sources exist for those who are not covered by private insurance. These sources include Medicaid, The Vermont Department of Health, and The Family, Infant and Toddler Project of Vermont.
