A Superior Childhood All Discipline Agency
Welcome to Lifespan Neurological Physical Therapy
Lifespan Neurological Physical Therapy is a pediatric practice that provides not only physical therapy, but also special education, occupational therapy, speech and feeding services, and service coordination in Nassau and Suffolk Counties for the New York State Early Intervention Program. We have been providing these services since 1990.
All of the teachers and therapists working with Lifespan have over 20 years of experience serving this infant and young child population. Rob Paskoff is also one of Long Island’s few board certified clinical specialists in pediatric Physical Therapy. Cindy Arroyo is on the speech and language faculty at Adelphi University.
It is our goal to provide quality, one – on one therapy, tailored to each child’s individual needs. We believe this is best achieved by keeping abreast of current medical and therapeutic literature, and attending continuing education conferences, in addition to maintaining ongoing communications with other health care professional involved in the child’s case.
Our ongoing service coordination staff maintains monthly contact with each child’s family and helps arrange any changes to service the child might need.
Most services are provided in the least restrictive environment which is usually the child’s home but can also be a day care setting. Arrangements can be made to serve each child in the office as well if family and therapist agree that this would be the best environment for services to take place.
