About Pediatric Therapy Associates

PTA is a multi-disciplinary pediatric therapy practice with locations in Raleigh, Cary, Garner, and Wake Forest.

Our Mission

Our goal at Pediatric Therapy Associates & Sports Medicine is to provide quality services for infants, children, adolescents, and young adults up to 26 years of age. These services include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, feeding therapy, developmental therapy, early intervention, constraint-induced movement therapy, and hippotherapy.

For the benefit of our families, we maintain expertise in all areas related to the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. We encourage parental involvement and understand the importance of forming lasting partnerships with the families that we serve. We feel this is essential in order to establish goals and achieve optimal outcomes.

We are proud to be a teaching and training site for undergraduate and graduate interns who are pursuing careers in pediatric therapy.

Welcome to PTA!

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

Pediatric Therapy Associates welcomes you to our locally owned practice. We are proud of the reputation we have earned as being a premiere multidisciplinary therapy practice with the skills and equipment to treat children with a wide range of needs and abilities. The treatment techniques we offer will enhance your child’s level of function and the quality of their daily activities. We encourage you to develop a close working relationship with your therapist(s) in order to help us to set therapeutic goals and to support the rehabilitative needs of your child. As you are your child’s best advocate, we would like to emphasize to you the importance of speaking openly and honestly with your therapist. In addition to your individual therapist, all of our management, administrative and clinical staff are available to assist you. Your child’s success is of utmost importance to us, and we encourage you to contact us if we can assist that process in any way. You are the most important member of your child’s rehabilitative team. With your help and support, we can provide the best care for your child.
