Progress Through Play at ABC Pediatric Therapy 

Progress Through Play at ABC Pediatric Therapy 

by -

We chat with the founder of a local pediatric therapy network to learn what sets them apart and how they get results for children with special needs. 

 
Children progress faster through play. That’s the idea behind ABC Pediatric Therapy.  
 
“We work with a range of children — those who just need a little extra help to medically fragile children, all diagnosis or no known diagnoses,” says CEO and founder, Diane L Crecelius, PT. “ I created ABC because I believe our special children are typical children stuck inside bodies that have not yet learned how to work. I believe every child has a voice. We must figure out how to hear it. I believe all our special children can be mobile, and we are challenged to give them wings. I believe every child can be confidently independent. We have to believe enough in them to let them have successes and failures.” 
 
Crecelius says there are four main features that make ABC Pediatric Therapy unique:
 
1. Multidisciplinary approach – all therapists work coherently to accomplish the greatest level of achievement for each child. Whether the child is receiving one discipline or all disciplines, our experience across therapies will promote overall improvements in the gross motor, fine motor, and communication areas. 
 
2. Home programming – therapists assist parents/care-givers in developing successful strategies and exercises that are useful and meaningful in each child’s everyday environment to encourage greater independence and participation in all areas of functioning. 
 
3. Innovative treatment approach – therapists integrate positive components of traditional therapeutic methods with innovative and creative treatment techniques and equipment.
