Established in 2005, Ducktails is a caring and professional environment that fosters a collaborative relationship between parents, children, physicians, and therapists. We strive to provide care in a nurturing, welcoming, and supportive environment that empowers every child and encourages them to play and interact. We offer a fun and interactive environment where children want to participate in therapy.
Children coming to Ducktails are generally referred by a physician or pediatrician. We recommend talking to your child’s doctor if you need a referral. Once you have a referral, click here to download our New Patient Packet that you can fill out and email back to us or print and bring with you on your initial visit. You should also attach and/or bring with you insurance information and be prepared to remit a co-payment if necessary.
During an initial appointment, a therapist will meet with your child and perform a professional assessment — including achievement appraisals of developmental milestones — to determine what services, if any, are needed. Any services desired can then be regularly scheduled. Your child’s responsible self-sufficiency and autonomy is the goal that we continuously strive for. With effective intervention and positive reinforcement, we can help them get there.
All I have ever wanted was to be able to understand my children, and I was so distraught when I couldn’t and they were already 3 years-old. Most children are talking around 2 but not mine. Shortly after they started at Ducktails I noticed an improvement. Now, several months later I can understand most of what they were saying the first time they said a sentence and it was understandable… I started bawling and screaming for my husband, that was one of the happiest days of my life.
If most of you grew up with Ducktails TV series like I did---then you know that it’s all about adventure, learning, teamwork, and family. All of these things ring true for Ducktails Pediatric Therapy and Wellness. My child’s developmental path started out as a stressful one. As a new parent I had no idea what tools I needed to help them grown and develop. Our learning adventure began at Ducktails Therapy and has changed our family’s life dramatically. We went from frustration and disappointment to noticing great learning progress in my child due to the staff’s caring hands. The staff is very attentive to the parents and children’s needs. They are always ready to answer questions I have and give detailed reports on how my child’s session goes. Whenever I have a concern the staff adjusts their lessons and when they have a suggestion I take it and apply it at home. Ducktails Therapy has achieved powerful and unified teamwork along with a great bond of feeling like family. I trust every staff member and know my child is in good hands. If you’ve been searching for a successful therapy adventure---stop because you found it here!
