Pediatric Physical Therapy - Sumner, Nashua, and Waverly Clinics

At Taylor Physical Therapy, we have physical therapists that create specialized treatment programs for each individual child. We provide a fun atmosphere to learn and grow while making gains toward their motor milestones. Our Pediatric Physical Therapists help children develop muscle strength while coordinating those muscles to sit, stand, balance, walk, reach and play. We promote independence along with increasing participation in their natural environment. We believe enhancing learning opportunities can lead to increased ease with challenges during daily activities. Our Pediatric Physical Therapists focus on helping children experience the world around them to the fullest capacity possible.

Pediatric Support Group

“Finding Support for Families of Children with Special Needs”

We have created a support group for families of children with special healthcare needs to provide them a place to meet, learn, support, share and grow together.  Our vision for this group is to provide a place for families of children with varying levels of specialized healthcare needs to meet, learn, support, share and grow together. And our goals are to provide a safe place for support and learning where families feel comfortable to share their successes and disappointments. While creating a non-threatening and open-minded environment for families with children of varying levels of special needs. This group meets quarterly at Waverly Health Center at the Tendrils Rooftop Garden.

Group meeting information can be found on our closed Facebook group entitled “Supporting Families of Children with Special Needs” so please request an addition to this group for further information or feel free to contact our Waverly Health Center clinic at 319-352-5644.
