Therapies Offered

Physical Therapy

NAPA Center takes an intensive approach to physical therapy using the NeuroSuit and Multifunctional Therapy Units.

Occupational Therapy

An OT’s role is to assist individuals in performing “occupations” with the greatest level of independence possible. Childhood occupations include learning in school and playing with friends.

Speech Therapy

Our therapists use a variety of techniques to address oral motor dysfunction, apraxia, fluency, receptive and expressive language, social pragmatics, and feeding and swallowing difficulties, to help your child improve overall communication and/or feeding development.

Developmental Feeding Therapy

Our occupational therapists will work with your child to help them learn to feed themselves so they can become more independent.

Vitalstim and Swallowing Therapy

VitalStim Therapy is an effective treatment for patients suffering from difficulty swallowing or dysphagia.

Cuevas Medek Exercise

CME is a dynamic technique used in physical and occupational therapy aimed at provoking improved postural responses in patients to promote progress toward developmental milestones.

NeuroSuit

The NeuroSuit frames the body providing support and resistance simultaneously. It facilitates proper movement and provides additional weight bearing distributed strategically throughout the body.

Spider Cage

The SpiderCage is a three-sided wire device that uses a belt and bungee cords to enable the patient to perform balance and strengthening exercise with proper positioning alignment.

Intensive Therapy

Our intensive programs, which may include combinations of occupational, physical, & speech therapy, are customized for each child based on their needs & goals.
