Our Mission. Our Passion. Our Expertise.

Here at Bellaire PT our mission is to help children and their families participate in daily activities or “daily occupations” through play, sensory integrative techniques, therapeutic activities, manual therapy, neuromuscular re-education, and therapeutic exercise.
We are passionate about having our patients experience the exhilarating beauty of growth and success. Our passion also lies in providing parent and caregiver training to establish the most effective home programs and make sure that our parents fully understand the depth and breadth of their children’s therapy needs. We also provide school and teacher consultations and training for classroom carryover of therapy-related recommendations.
We are committed to providing our patients with the highest level of care, compassion, and understanding. Our therapy approaches are research-based, using cutting-edge techniques, and the most updated methods in the field. Our team of highly-trained therapists have significant experience working across all areas of pediatrics including inpatient, outpatient, school-based, including feeding teams, and autism teams.

What Our Parents Are Saying

My son was 6 months behind with his gross motor development. We were told by our pediatrician that it would take 6 months of therapy to catch up. After 3 sessions we have already gained 3 months! Dr. Lieberman is amazing!

-Catherine S.

Jack injured his shoulder and elbow pitching in little league games. We went to Baseball USA and did not see any results in over 3 months of rehab. After 4 weeks of sessions with Dr. Lieberman, we were on our way to pitching pain-free!

-Mary F.

We had tried chiropractic treatment and Arrosti, but Rachel still had calf pain during soccer and gym. One session of dry needling with Dr. Lieberman and she is nearly pain-free!

– James Q.

Abraham has helped our son make incredible progress in gross motor and fine motor skills. He takes the time to help us understand not only what is being done, but why he is doing it, and how we can replicate the efforts at home. More than this, he has become one of our most trusted advisors on our son’s development, and his affection for our son is clear. I would recommend Abraham to anyone!

-Michael S. 

My son had fractured his leg and would not weight-bear. One session with Abraham and he began to walk. What a relief!

 – F.V.

I am so grateful for the OT treatment, specifically fine motor skills and sensory issues, that my 5 yr old son has received at Bellaire PT. The communication with both the administrative staff and my son’s OT has been excellent. His OT, Chani, goes above and beyond to facilitate his treatment and truly cares about his progress. My son can’t wait for his sessions and feels proud of his improvement. I would recommend Bellaire PT to anyone looking for that extra level of care and attention that you miss at very large institutions.

-Rus Wersing

Our nanny held our daughter all the time. At 15 months she could not pull to stand. We were concerned about a neurological injury but 2 months of rehab with Dr. Lieberman and she is a healthy active toddler!

-S.T.

Our daughter had severe torticollis and we tried PT at the Texas Childrens Hospital. Our daughter simply cried each session and it was to no use. No progress was made. We began to see Abraham and we are so glad because her surgeon wanted to operate! 

–P. V.

“Both myself and my wife have been Dr. Lieberman’s patients on multiple occasions. He is very knowledgeable in his field, particularly regarding anatomy and specific exercises for various conditions. He has an outstanding manner with patients, is professional and thorough. He goes above and beyond to educate his patients regarding their conditions and to follow up with them. I recommend him without reservations. He has guided us with our daughter’s torticollis and later with our son’s delay.”!
 
– David Z.

We were referred to Dr. Lieberman to help treat our son’s torticollis. He was very knowledgeable about the condition and how to treat it. When showing us how to do the home exercises he was very patient and thorough, making sure we understood how to perform them correctly. Explanations of the condition as well as the medical background of it were elaborated in a way so that we clearly understood in lay terms and never felt talked down to as you do with some medical professionals!

– J.S

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between OT and PT?
Both occupational and physical therapists work with children on their body movements, coordination, and participation in their environments. PT focuses on balance, strength, range of motion, gross motor skills, and endurance, while OT works on fine motor skills, visual perceptual skills, sensory processing, and activities of daily living.
What can I expect at an evaluation?
We begin our therapy process with an evaluation.  The evaluation will last 45-60 minutes and includes a caregiver interview, standardized testing, and clinical observation. We will then develop a plan of care together with the caregiver with specific goals that are most appropriate for the child and his/her functional and developmental needs.
What can I expect at a treatment session?
Treatment sessions are 45-60 minutes long but can be customized to the needs of your child. Your therapist will work with you to determine which exercises and activities that will keep your child engaged, active and working towards his/her goals. Children will engage in games and other activities that keep their attention and make therapy fun. They might not even notice that they are working!
What kind of challenges does therapy address?
Pediatric therapy addresses the needs of children to improve their functional participation in age appropriate movement patterns and activities. Some diagnoses that we address include: autism spectrum disorder, gross and fine motor delays, sensory processing challenges, behavioral difficulties, genetic disorders, Down’s Syndrome, brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, cancer, high and low muscle tone, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, ADHD, concussions, seizures, developmental delay, torticollis, idiopathic toe walking, sports injury, and orthopedic injuries.
What kind of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are expected for a child to be able to do?
ADLs change based on age and stage. They include: toileting, self feeding, dressing, manipulating fasteners, bathing, grooming, shoe tying, tool/cutlery use. However, the most important and significant ADL for children is PLAY!! Play may be challenged due to physical limitations, strength, coordination, motor planning, or sensory processing. It is the most effective research-proven way to address improving these underlying factors and impacting the way that the brain and nervous system process information. 
What is the role of a parent/caregiver in the therapeutic process?
Parents and caregivers know their children best! We consider parents/caregivers to be our most significant partners in therapy. We always encourage parents to join therapy sessions to watch and participate in their child’s care. It is so impactful for parents/caregivers to observe their child’s successes in the moment and increase their understanding of which activities are being performed and why. This also enables parents/caregivers to skillfully and easily participate in a therapist recommended home program with exercises and activities. This facilitates the most seamless carryover of therapeutic skills to be performed in the home environment, too. Support is an essential part in recovery and helping patients meet their goals. Parents and caregivers will receive the guidance and training they need to help their child progress toward his/her goals. In this way, the skills that are honed at therapy will carry over into the home and community.
