Cutting Edge Pediatric and Adult Therapy believes in the comprehensive treatment of the “whole” person. With developmental and learning differences, this may consist of many collaborative units working together to support personal growth at its maximum potential. One of those collaborative units is Aquatic Therapy. Aquatic therapy is a therapeutic modality utilized by our physical, occupational and speech therapy teams at CEPT. Our pool offers various specialized tools such as an underwater treadmill, cameras and monitoring system, resistance jets and a therapeutic massage jet.

For additional information, our therapists will be able to provide guidance if aquatic therapy is appropriate for your child’s treatment. For safety reasons, clients that participate in aquatic sessions must be able to safely transition into the pool with minimal assistance. Please understand that we do not provide swim lessons, as we are medical professionals that are not required to be certified in swim training. Bear in mind that CEPT must remain compliant with city guidelines, all clients are required to be potty trained in order to be considered for aquatic services.

Therapy with a purpose – it's imitated, but not replicated.
