Neuromotor Therapy Program
Children who experienced a brain injury very early in life can have a variety of problems with their ability to move, and their needs change frequently as they get older. Our Neuromotor Therapy Program at Children’s Hospital Boston is devoted to maximizing the motor skills of these children.
We work with children with any non-progressive, early-life brain injury, including:
Our goal is to help your child reach her full potential in all aspects of her motor function, including her ability to walk, use her hands and speak.
We are a consultation service who can evaluate your child’s specific motor strengths and challenges and develop a plan for therapy in her school or with therapists in your community. We can communicate back to your child’s primary neurologist and therapists about our recommendations, and then periodically reassess how she is responding to the therapies and how her needs are changing.
Our program includes Children’s specialists from Neurology, Physical Therapy, Orthopedic Surgery, and Neurosurgery who combine their expertise to devise the best therapeutic strategies for each individual child. We also draw on advances in neuroscience research and technology to benefit our patients.
