The Children's Therapy Center's mission is to provide quality occupational, speech and physical therapy services to the pediatric population in a family friendly, informal environment. It is our hope that all children and families will be treated with utmost respect, given excellent attention by a committed staff, and provided with personalized and individualized care.

We recognize that all children deserve to reach their maximum potential in order for happiness and contentment to be achieved. It is our intent to provide a few "Rays of Sunshine" to those who need our services.


Suzan Syron has been a practicing pediatric physical therapist since 1973. She is trained in Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT) and has advanced training in baby treatment. She is certified in the administration & interpretation of the Southern California Sensory Integration Test. She has been an adjunct professor at Marymount University, Master Program in Physical Therapy, and has taught pediatric courses at Shenandoah University and George Washington University. She has co-instructed several NDT certification courses, and has provided multiple presentations to physician groups and parent organizations.

After many years working in a variety of pediatric settings, including schools, medical facilities, intensive care units, and rehabilitation centers, Suzan decided to fulfill her dream of providing services to children in her own practice. Suzan Syron and Associates, P.C. opened its doors in 1979 and has steadily grown from an individual practice to a multi-service facility. In 1999 the corporate name was changed to THE CHILDREN'S THERAPY CENTER, in order to more accurately reflect the wide array of services available. In 1991 she co-founded the Northern Virginia IDEA Center, an outpatient rehabilitation center and early intervention facility.

Suzan strongly believes in community service and because of this, she has volunteered her services through many local programs and advisory boards. She is co-founder of the Nain Foundation. She is also co-founder of the Kelley Syron Sunshine Fund.


The Children's Therapy Center participates with many private insurance companies. The center coordinates speech, occupational and physical therapy services for those children who have recently been discharged from inpatient care, but continue to require ongoing intensive services. Team meetings by all professional are routinely scheduled in order to assess progress or revise treatment plans. Home visits are periodically scheduled so that assessment of Activities of Daily Living Skills (ADL) and adaptive equipment requirements can be monitored.
