About Us

Hope Pediatric came to fruition out of the desire to provide the best care to children.  Hope Pediatric has a family-like atmosphere and a kid friendly setting.  As a practice, we pride ourselves in providing holistic therapy for the child and family.  A family-centered treatment approach can be as simple offering support in the form of a hug or as much as giving resources, advice, and referrals.  Hope Pediatric also has educational and support experiences for families.

Hope Pediatric offers a sensory gym that is state of the art and provides unique sensory experiences.  In addition, the sensory gym at Hope Pediatric is innovative and exclusive to the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  Hope Pediatric also uses the latest technology such as The Listening Program, InTime, Interactive Metronome, and Handwriting Without Tears when working with children.  We are also able to provide a variety of sensory tools for home and school.  In addition, we have extensive visual motor and ocular motor equipment to address visual processing.  The therapists at Hope Pediatric also have post graduate training in specialized areas including Sensory Integration Praxis Testing (SIPT) training.
