Does Your Child Need Therapy For a Cognitive Disorder? 

Cognitive disorders in children can be extremely difficult to understand and cope with. One of the ways that cognitive disorders show up in children is through physical, social, and learning disabilities. It is vital as a parent to understand what cognitive skills are and learn how to pick up on the signs of cognitive skill deficiencies.

At Southern Pediatric Therapy Clinic our pediatric therapists are experts in treating children with cognitive disabilities. There is no reason you have to shoulder this weight all on your own -- call our office today to learn more about treatment options for your child.

  • Memory skills
