Occupational Therapy DoodleAt Emerge Pediatric Therapy, our highly trained occupational therapists are equipped with the tools to help support infants (and their families!) reach their early developmental milestones.  Infants may receive occupational therapy at Emerge to address delayed early developmental milestones (such as rolling, sitting upright, or crawling), torticollis, parent/child bond, and more.  Emerge offers a variety of programs for infants including one-on-one sessions, supportive group therapies, infant massage training, and parent workshops. 

Your baby loves and learns from you! Our occupational therapists help you to maximize your interactions and support your baby’s developing brain and body. The first few months of life are critical for establishing a baby’s foundation in development that will help them to grow for years to come. Infants may receive occupational therapy at Emerge to promote typical developmental milestones, address delayed developmental milestones (such as rolling, sitting upright, or crawling), torticollis, support a healthy parent/child bond, and more. We value empowering parents in their role and enjoy helping parents to feel confident in caring for their little one.
