Founded December 13, 1999, B & V Thera-Pro Associates, Corp. offers comprehensive services including Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Massage Therapy, and Behavior Therapy. We initially began by providing only home and community based therapy to children and adolescents. Since, we have grown and expanded to offer therapy services to both adults and children at our Kendall facility, Bird Road facility, and our Westchester facility. We embrace a comprehensive approach for the treatment of genetic, neurological, musculoskeletal, developmental and/or orthopedic conditions.
The therapists at B & V Thera-Pro Associates, Corp. are trained to work with individuals of all ages from birth through adulthood. We specialize in the treatment of children with disorders across the spectrum including but not limited to prematurity and infants who are considered high risk. All of our therapists are licensed in the State of Florida and have a vast knowledge of experience. Many of the therapists are NDT and SI trained and certified.
Therapists are each specialized in their specific knowledge areas. Therapy is goal-oriented and client centered. We encourage each individual to make decisions and select activities of interest.
The following is an overview detailing our therapy services offered:
Occupational Therapists: Our Occupational Therapists work on developmental activities and therapeutic activities to improve functional abilities. More specifically, handwriting skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, postural control, sequencing, attention and concentration skills, self or guided feeding, dressing, bathing, grooming, space perception and planning, in-hand manipulation skills, and sensory awareness/integration.
Physical Therapists: Our Physical Therapists work on issues affecting movement, balance, range of motion, strength, posture, gait and mobility. They are trained to address the neuromuscular and musculoskeletal system in order to allow for the opportunity to move within their environment with the least of restrictions.
Speech Therapists: Our Speech Therapists or Speech-Language Pathologists are multilingual and are skilled to work with clients who have difficulty in the areas of articulation, voice, language, fluency and tone. They also address more specialized issues including hearing impairments, stuttering, apraxia, auditory processing disorders, sensory deficits related to speech, oral musculature disorders and pragmatic language problems.
Behavior Therapists: Our Behavior Therapists or Applied Behavioral Analysts will study a child’s problem behavior within the environment where it occurs, to determine why the behavior is occurring and what factors are influencing the behavior. Recognizing the importance of environment, behavioral analysts also work with parents to create environments that are best for functional outcomes.
Massage Therapists: Our Massage Therapists work on muscle relaxation and elongation along with providing a positive sensory experience that has a prolonged effect. Massage helps to gradually increase tolerance of touch and reduce self-stimulating behaviors. Our therapists work on decreasing pain, and improving range of motion and circulation.
The development of all clients with special needs is our primary focus. Our wide matrix of experienced therapists are expertly trained to work together providing each client with a unique, complete approach so that each can address their own individual needs. In all therapies, the client is challenged yet nurtured, with the goal being to achieve the highest level of success. Equally as important as the therapists being up to date and well educated on the latest treatment techniques etc., we feel that since our clients spend most of their time with you, (mom and dad of course) how much you know and how involved you are in your child’s therapy is paramount to the success we strive for.
