About Milestones

Milestones – For Kids’ Success is a pediatric therapy practice devoted to assisting children with unique needs and challenges attain their fullest potential in life. We strive every day to create a culture of exceptional care to ensure that your child gains the skills and confidence needed to be successful in their home, educational and community environments, and to foster positive and fulfilling peer and family relationships.

We believe that recognizing and responding to the needs and value system of each family we serve is critical to the child’s success. At Milestones, empowering and supporting families is an essential component of a child’s therapeutic intervention.

Our Approach

Our team of enthusiastic and caring therapists and practitioners works closely together and is trained in the most up-to-date pediatric intervention methods. Our areas of expertise include pediatric occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, listening therapy, social skills groups and family support. Our staff is highly experienced, and we take great pride in meeting the unique needs of each individual child and family we serve.

Milestones’ professionals believe there are two vital components to help children achieve their full potential. The first is creating intrinsically motivating experiences — activities that engage the child while accomplishing the goal. The second is partnering with parents to provide ongoing education and support for home programming efforts. We work very closely with families to help integrate therapy programming into daily routines.


Milestones was founded as a pediatric therapy practice in 2002 by Janet Puderbaugh, MS, OTR/L, an occupational therapist with over 20 years of experience at the time. Janet’s broad-based pediatric experience includes direct care, management, program development and teaching experience across multiple practice settings. Embracing a philosophy that is family-oriented and focused on meeting the needs of each child and family served, Janet has devoted her career to helping children attain their fullest potential possible.

The Milestones practice has undergone three expansions to its facilities and continues to grow and evolve. Today, Janet and the Milestones team are proud to offer a state-of-the-art facility of over 5,660 square feet and an array of services including pediatric physical therapy, speech-language therapy, all types of occupational therapy, feeding therapy, sound-based interventions, and social work services to support the family and child in social-emotional needs.
