Wonderful Care for Your Child...
"It's lonely for a child who doesn't know how to play with others. We help children to develop the skills necessary to decrease social isolation. Our goal is to help them successfully integrate with their families and communities."
- Dawn M. Forsmith, MPTA President, MOT, OTR/L
Memorial Pediatric Therapy Associates, a Houston, TX pediatric therapy clinic, offers therapy for children with a wide range of conditions, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities and communication disorders.
MPTA specializes in understanding and helping children challenged by Autism Spectrum Disorder and related disorders. MPTA's therapists have special training and experience in the DIR® (Developmental, Individual-Difference, Relationship-Based) FloortimeTM Model - a proven model in the treatment of Autism and related disorders.
"Children have the best chance of making progress when challenges are identified and addressed early," says MPTA director Dawn M. Forsmith, MOT OTR/L. "We help children relate, communicate and think, rather than developing skills in isolation. The foundation of our program is the DIR® FloortimeTM Model, Sensory Integration Therapy and strong parental involvement."
