Since 1983, Pediatric Therapy Associates has been improving the lives of hundreds of children and infants with special needs in South Puget Sound. We offer specialized services for children with neurodevelopmental impairments, sensory or perceptual deficits, communication disorders, birth defects, prenatal drug and alcohol exposure, autism, and learning disabilities.
Our Occupational Therapist, Janet Shefferly and our Speech Pathologist, Sara Kemp are sole practitioners who combine their expertise to provide individualized treatment for children with special needs.
We encourage early referral of children at risk for developmental problems. We can help preschoolers with sensorimotor and language difficulties prepare for a more successful educational experience. As children move through the educational system, we can provide a stable continuum of care.
We coordinate their services with school districts, pediatricians, health departments, dentists, and other medical specialists throughout Southwest Washington. We team with regional medical facilities such as Mary Bridge Children's Health Center, Children's Hospital and Medical Center, and the University of Washington.
We are active advocates for families of children with special needs.
