When my son started receiving therapy here about 4 years ago (age 4) he had difficulties with climbing (in and out of truck, up and down steps, up and down playground equipment, and he didn’t like for you to lift him up in the air). He didn’t speak up much when we started, he wasn’t potty trained, he had sensitivities to light, he had trouble wearing socks and shoes because they bothered him and he couldn’t put them on himself. He also could not manipulate buttons and zippers, spoon and fork because he had difficulties with fine motor skills and had poor muscle tone. He always shoved way too much food in his mouth, even if it wasn’t edible, and he licked everything. The list goes on. His meltdowns were huge and often! I am happy to say no longer has trouble with most of the issues and the rest have improved greatly!
My son having autism not only affects him but everyone in our family and our community. Our quality of life has greatly improved since we started here. They don’t just provide a service, they provide hope for a better future. I can say that 4 years ago I didn’t know that the PIPT would change our lives the way they have, and I am so grateful for that. I have no plans for stopping his therapy anytime soon, the staff at PIPT are like family. They are kind, caring, polite, professional, and will work with your schedule and your payments. Come to think of it, they may be better than family!
