How it works
Our process involves:
- Parent/physician calls and outlines concerns.
- We conduct a brief consultation over the phone to determine if we can help.
- Together, we determine insurance coverage.
- Set up an initial appointment: a one hour evaluation.
- Based on evaluation, determine an appropriate plan of care.
- From there, we meet with the child regularly.
- We track progress through regular reevaluations.
- And finally, we coach children & parents on staying consistent and doing the homework.
What Our Clients Say
We have been extremely pleased with our four-year old son Michael’s progress. He received a diagnosis of the Apraxia by his neurologist. We did not know where to turn. Our preschool teacher recommended that we see both Deanna and Carissa (they are sisters) for both speech and occupational therapy services. We walked in the door and knew this was the right place! It is completely family driven! You can tell from the moment you meet them that they have been in practice for many years and have tons of experience. We feel like we are treated like family- they handle every aspect from start to finish-including our challenging insurance plan. It is truly a white glove experience. If you are looking for a family driven experience, clean facility/child friendly environment, with a multitude of knowledge in a variety of areas, the Pediatric Center is the place for you and more importantly your child! Michael is a completely different child because of the Pediatric Therapy Center.

I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the progress my daughter Isabel has made under the care of Deanna and her staff at the Pediatric Center. We were very concerned that our daughter at two and a half years of age was experiencing developmental speech problems and lagging behind other children her age but, thanks to the dedication and expertise of Deanna and her staff our child has made significant strides. Deanna and her staff are knowledgeable and professional. They treat each child as if that child was their own. We are very pleased with the progress Isabel has made, and we highly recommend the Pediatric Therapy Center to anyone whose child is experiencing speech problems.

Deanna and her staff at the Pediatric Therapy Center are very courteous and professional. When we brought our granddaughter in for an evaluation Deanna responded thoroughly to all our questions and concerns and immediately put us at ease. The office is friendly and inviting, and our granddaughter enjoyed meeting the staff. Deanna is a skilled therapist who always puts the needs of her patients first. We are so happy to have worked with her and her team. It was one of the best decisions my daughter and I made for my granddaughter. Thank-you to Deanna and her staff.
from Verona, NJ
I am so grateful that my family and I decided to send our son to the Pediatric Therapy Center. Our son who has a diagnosis of Autism was hesitant at first but Deanna immediately put him at ease with her caring and compassionate demeanor. Deanna was very patient with us and carefully explained our options. I was impressed with how knowledgeable and proficient she and staff are with the latest research. I am confident that we made the best choice. Our son is already thriving and noticeably more verbal. Thank-you to everyone at the Pediatric Therapy Center.
from Little Falls, NJ
I would like to thank Deanna for all of her hard work in treating and caring for my son throughout each one of our speech therapy appointments. Deanna and all of her staff are professional and innovative in their approach and techniques. Once my husband and I made a commitment to Deanna and her practice it was incredible to watch our son consistently make progress and meet milestones. Aside from the welcoming and family first atmosphere at the pediatric center, Deanna accepts insurance which is not common in this field which helped my husband and I manage costs while also making sure our son received the best therapy in northern New Jersey. I would recommend Deanna to any family who is undecided on where to go or who to call when deciding on pediatric speech therapy. Thank you Deanna for all the time and effort you’ve put in with my son. You are truly remarkable!
from North Caldwell, New Jersey
There are so many beautiful, wonderful things to say about how The has helped my son. Finding Carissa & Deanna was a God-send! My son has gone from being shy and non-verbal to outgoing and talkative in a short span of time. The ladies at The Pediatric Therapy Center of NJ are hard working, patient and loving to our family and I can't thank them enough! Highly recommended with love and joy!❤️
from Newark, NJ
The Pediatric Therapy Center has been a blessing to my family because all of the therapists are caring and knowledgeable in their fields. The therapists are patient, kind, and loving. Both of my sons go to the center once per week for speech and occupational therapy and they love going! My oldest son hugs the staff and they make sure his session is catered to his needs. One of the speech therapists, recommended that my son get a speech device- he now uses a device to communicate. The owners will work with you to make sure you and your child have the best experience. I highly recommend the center! 5 stars!!!!
