Pediatric Therapy & Rehabilitation

We work with children, teens and young adults who have developmental disabilities, illnesses or traumatic injuries. Our specialty therapists work with your child's care team to evaluate your child's needs and develop an individual treatment plan.

From regaining daily activity functionality to speech-language therapy, we help children become as independent as possible and reach their highest potential.

Outpatient Therapy Services

  • Physical Therapy

    Are daily activities like picking up objects and balance difficult for your child? Physical therapists diagnose and treat the physical source of these problems. With their help, progress and independence is possible. 

    Occupational Therapy

    Disabilities, illnesses and injuries can affect your child's developmental, reasoning and thinking skills. Our occupational therapists focus on incorporating adaptive tools to improve your child's life skills and independence. 

    Treatment for Cleft Lip

    At our Craniofacial Clinic, we evaluate the speech and swallowing abilities of children with abnormalities such as cleft lip or cleft palate before and after surgical repair. We also provide follow-up treatment options.

Acquired Brain Injury Program

An acquired brain injury (an injury not present before birth) can dramatically affect the development of speech, language, thinking, movement and social skills for young children. 

Our physical and occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists work closely with your child's care team. They strive to help children transition back to as normal a lifestyle as possible.

Play That Works

  • By engaging our young patients in play-based therapy and recreational activities designed to strengthen muscles and improve balance, coordination and mobility, the therapy team helps each child actively participate in daily situations like eating, holding a pencil, sitting in a desk at school or communicating with others.

    We work with children of all ages, from infancy to young adults aged 21.

After Serious Illness or Injury

Developing Skills for Daily Life

Serious illnesses or injury can require longterm stays in the hospital. After discharge, our treatment services are important to maintain a child’s mobility, daily functional skills and muscle strength.  

For example, patients who’ve been on a feeding tube for an extended period may need to “re-learn” how to eat. We provide rehabilitation services to children through these specialty treatment programs:
