Meet the Therapists!

Synaptic Pediatric Therapies is a pediatric speech and occupational therapy private practice that serves the surrounding Dallas Fort-Worth area. We provide excellent care to patients from birth to 20 years of age. Our primary focus is to serve the community around us. We strive to build strong family relationships with each patient, and treat every child as our own. We are committed to creating a friendly and fun environment, whilst improving their communication and occupational skills. The key in today’s society is communication and confidence, and we make every effort to build that in all of our children!
