Helping your child get back to being a kid.
It would be great if all children could be well and healthy all the time. But for many children, especially those who have been injured, ill or have had congenital conditions, the road back to health and wellness can be a long one.
Our pediatric rehabilitation program is staffed by caring professionals who are specially trained in a wide range of disciplines, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and audiology. Because health issues can cross into many areas of medicine, we use an interdisciplinary approach to treating learning and physical conditions that require rehabilitation.
The program is characterized by a family-centric style of treatment, which focuses on the unique needs of your child. We work with you and the rest of your family to develop the ongoing skills and strategies that will be needed to ensure successful healing.
Therapy sessions are designed to not only be effective, but fun, allowing your child to heal at home as well as at the hospital. We teach rehabilitative skills that can be carried over to the home, at school and community.
We are extremely proud of our legacy of diagnosing and rehabilitating children who have experienced all sorts of health problems, from adolescent sports injuries to newborns who have been born with congenital conditions that must be addressed early in their lives so they can develop normally.
