Special instruction is one of the support services offered to infants and toddlers by the Early Intervention Program (EIP) in the state of New York. Special instruction services consist of special educational sessions with a special instruction specialist, the child, and the child’s parents.
Our Physical Therapy program is focused on improving core stability, neuromuscular re-education, and gross motor ability. Our therapists are specialized in pediatric physical therapy with years of experience. Our therapist utilizes evidence-based practices in creating a unique approach to meet your child’s needs for a bright future.
