Reimagining Milestones To Move Forward

When you experience developmental delays with your child, all you want is for them to have the same opportunities as other kids.  You just want them to be able to walk, play and explore.  And, we do, too!

Red Flags to Look out for
  • Child is presenting with poor head control, and appears to look or gaze to one side more than the other.
  • Child is not reaching while on their back or belly, or participating in supported sitting.
  • Child is not able to sit with control, unsupported.
11 Months
  • Child is not crawling.
  • Child is not walking.
We support your child and family in reimagining new milestones to move forward, creating hope and possibilities for your child to move in the world with confidence.

Milestone Specialities, Going Above & Beyond

At Milestone, we’re always innovating.  We offer five specific specialty treatments in physical therapy so your children have the best opportunity to develop and grow. 

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy is a wonderful alternative to land therapy. It provides another alternative treatment method to focus on range of motion, strength building, balance, coordination, endurance, and many other areas of development. The water works to reduce a child’s body weight to assist the child to move in ways they may not be able to on land.

Dynamic Movement Intervention (DMI)

DMI is an intervention commonly used in physical and occupational therapy. This therapeutic technique is used to treat children with motor delay(s) and/or impairment(s) by focusing on alignment, sensory integration, and function.


The benefits of infant massage are numerous, helping to support the infant /child development of body systems including: circulatory, digestive, hormonal, immune, lymphatic, nervous, respiratory, vestibular and proprioceptive


While kinesiology taping is typically thought of as a treatment for athletes (and utilized since the 1970s), it’s also been found to be beneficial specifically for pediatrics. The pediatric neuromuscular system benefits from early and continuous input for postural development and motor learning. Therapeutic taping provides an additional modality for optimal results across all pediatric patients.


Neurodevelopmental Therapy (NDT) is a holistic approach to movement and therapeutic handling to achieve optimal function for your child.
