Pediatric Therapies Hawaii

We are a nonprofit on Maui, providing Physical and Occupational Therapy services to children with developmental delays and disabilities. We are dedicated to providing the best therapeutic services to the children of our community.

We saw a lack of Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy services available for children with disabilities and developmental delays here on Maui and created this nonprofit to help fill that need. We support the families of children with special needs and help these children overcome their challenges and reach their full potential. We believe that these services should be accessible and affordable for every child.

Mission: Pediatric Therapies Hawaii strives to make Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy services accessible and affordable to each and every child on Maui who needs it. We work with children with disabilities and/or developmental delays who are underserved in our community, helping them with their physical, social, and emotional challenges.

MRIs show screen time linked to lower brain development in preschoolers

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends NO screen time for kids under 2 years old. And even when they are 2, it should be limited to no more than 1 hour a day. Less is best 😊 Encourage kids to go play outside and use their imaginations! Screen time use by infants, toddlers and preschoolers has exploded over the last decade, concerning experts about the impact of television, tablets and smartphones on these critical years of rapid brain development. Now a new study scanned the brains of children 3 to 5 years old and found those who....

Porque todas as crianças têm o direito de experimentar e se divertir 🤗
Essa dupla do vídeo é a @laucpatron e o seu filho João, 7 anos, que tem paralisia cerebral. O sonho de João era andar de skate e ele conseguiu realizar com a ajuda do @skate_anima Veja que história incrível:
"O projeto é tocado por dois caras o @danielpaniagua_ e o @stevan_pinto que não conseguiram ficar parados diante do sonho de uma outra jovem com paralisia cerebral. Ela queria o mesmo que o João: andar de skate. E os dois ficaram inquietos pensando o quão absurdo essa estrutura que faz com que crianças e jovens não possam sonhar, não importa quem sejam.
Os dois, um fisioterapeuta e um psicólogo, amam skate, e acharam mais que justo que todas as crianças pudessem ter a chance de amar também. Então, inventaram, construíram, acharam um jeito e de lá pra cá realizaram os sonhos de muita gente ❤🙏
O vídeo da primeira vez que o João esteve com eles foi parar em uma plataforma importante internacional de skate, e assim a gente vai transformando o que é normal, o que pertence, quem pertence, e o que é possível" 🥰💪

It’s always so hard to find shoes that accommodate braces! Stretchy, airy mesh, higher ankle support, a wide tongue opening, and interchangeable tabs make these styles ideal for use with ankle-foot orthotics or for kiddos with high insteps.

Helping Children Reach New Heights

The work of our Organization is aimed at providing therapeutic services to children with disabilities and developmental delays, in a convenient and affordable way. As a Pediatric Physical Therapist, I have been working with children on Maui for the past 7 years, in Early Intervention, schools, and outpatient settings and am passionate about helping children achieve their goals. It became blatantly obvious that Maui did not have enough pediatric providers and many children were not receiving the services they needed. Early Intervention offers Physical, Occupational, and Speech services from 0-3 years old and then the Department of Education offers services to children from 3-21, but often are unable to offer enough services to meet all their needs. Children who do not qualify for DOE services or need more therapy outside of school have very limited options. Currently, there are no other pediatric Physical Therapists, and limited Occupational and Speech Therapists on island. I decided to do something about this and started Pediatric Therapies Hawaii to help fill this need. I am excited to contribute to our community in this way and provide these much needed services.
