Science is truly following the evidence and utilizing our skills as physical therapists, but the art is how we communicate with a young patient’s family and engage them in the child’s development process. This program will used vignettes to illustrate how therapists can introduce technology to parents as a tool they can use for monitoring developmental progress and documenting symptoms; effectively communicate with families in ways that build trust, and ways to take on uncomfortable conversations with parents who don’t agree – even with each other.    


Drew Haverstock, PT,   shares his knowledge and expertise on "Art vs Science in the World of Pediatric Therapy".


 What to expect:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Define both art and science in the world of pediatric therapy
  • Outline simple ways to building trust and care teams using both art and science
  • Remind participants of everyday tech that helps families and reinforces our efforts
  • Detail strategies to cope with uncomfortable conversations artfully re-focusing on what's truly important
  • Walk out with stuff you can apply tomorrow! 

About the Speaker(s):  

Drew Haverstock, PT -Drew left the Fortune 500 business world in 1997 to return to school and pursue his dream of becoming a Physical Therapist.  He did this two weeks before getting married, which went over great with his Father-in-Law to be. 

While he thought that he'd wind up working in sports or outpatient orthopedics during his education at UIC, he fell in love working with children somewhere along the way. After a series of pediatric jobs in Illinois EI and at local hospitals – all that ended miserably through employer bankruptcy or buyout -- Drew decided to start his own company, Milestone Therapy, in 2002 following the George Costanza mindset of doing “exactly the opposite.” 

Initially doing solely Early Intervention on his own, Drew has grown Milestone to include all major pediatric disciplines for EI and is in over 30 different school districts throughout the Chicago-land area and northwest Indiana.  The heart of the company resides at their facility located in downtown Highland, IN, just across the state line from Chicago.  At 7,200 square feet of pediatric rompin' stompin' dynamite, as well as housing all MST’s back office efforts, it’s the epitome of what they envision all our clinics to be.  With a strategic partnership started in 2016 with the Franciscan Healthcare system in Illinois establishing Milestone as their anchor for all pediatric therapy, things have never looked brighter for kids with special needs in the greater Chicagoland area. 

While the business end of things can be time consuming, Drew found by giving up sleep for Lent in 2003 and never picking that bad habit back up, he can do everything he enjoys. 

From coaching baseball and flag-football, to reading Spider-Man, to travelling the world, he keeps himself ridiculously busy with his wife Elizabeth and their three kids.  Through it all, Drew's passion still lays with treating children on a day-to-day basis.  Simply put, “Helping a kid learn how to walk makes it easy to get out of bed every morning.”
