  • Physical Therapists 
  • Occupational Therapists 
  • Speech Therapists 
  • Special Education Educators

By understanding the journey of each child and their caregivers, we ensure that every individual receives the highest level of attention and care. 

1. A Compassionate Daily Routine

A child with neuromuscular disorders often benefits from a nurturing and consistent routine that addresses their medical, developmental, and social needs. At PediaTrust, our approach is always individualized, considering the nuances of each child’s condition. From necessary medical checks and therapy sessions to fun and engaging activities, we emphasize creating a positive and uplifting environment.

2. Comprehensive Therapy Sessions

We provide a variety of therapy services, including occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy. Our therapists work collaboratively with families to set achievable goals and integrate innovative techniques that help children increase their independence and quality of life.

3. Engaging Structured Activities

Our daycare programs are designed to promote learning, socialization, and fun in a safe and supportive setting for children with neuromuscular disorders. We understand the importance of nurturing the children’s curiosity and encouraging their eagerness to engage with the world. 

Activities like arts and crafts, music, and outdoor play are tailored to accommodate the abilities of children with neuromuscular disorders, ensuring that every child can participate and enjoy their day thoroughly.

4. Safe Transportation

Accessibility is a core part of inclusivity, so we offer specialized transport services to and from our daycare that account for the needs of children with neuromuscular disorders. We aim to ensure that mobility hurdles don’t impede participation, allowing children to attend our daycare and benefit from our support services.

5. Assisted Meals and Snack Times

For children with feeding challenges, PediaTrust provides specialized support during meal and snack times. Whether tube feeding, modified textures, or adaptive equipment, our staff ensures that every child receives proper nutrition in a comfortable and caring manner.
