Our Approach


Handprints and Footsteps Pediatric Therapy was established in 2009 in order to provide exceptional care to children with special needs in Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas. We were founded on the principles that all children should be empowered to achieve their full potential and excel in their environment.


Therapy Process

We are in-network providers with NC and SC Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield, MedCost and TRICARE. We are also proud to be providers for the Children’s Developmental Services Agencies in the Mecklenburg, Concord and Union county areas. Here at Handprints and Footsteps Pediatric Therapy, we file your insurance claim and will work with you if your insurance does not cover therapy.



At Handprints and Footsteps Pediatric Therapy, we offer physical, occupational and speech therapies to children from birth through 18 years of age. Our therapists provide a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Treatment can take place in our clinic or the child’s “natural environment,” including home, daycare, preschool and other community settings.

We offer free 15 minute screenings to help determine whether your child may benefit from further evaluation.
