Pediatric Therapy Services

Our mission in the pediatric rehabilitation department is to provide the highest quality of care to children of all ages in our community to improve their cognitive function, communication skills, social and emotional maturation, self-help skills, mobility, gross motor skills and fine motor skills.


We offer a multidisciplinary treatment approach to support each child’s unique needs within a caring, friendly environment to achieve developmental milestones.


Our team of specially trained occupational therapists, physical therapists and speech-language pathologists strive to provide a fun and engaging approach to help your child reach his or her maximum potential in all areas of development. Our therapists have certified training in kinesiotaping, barium swallow testing, dyslexia testing, neuro developmental treatment, assistive technology and wheelchair mobility, Vital Stim, interactive metronome, FEES, Beckman Oral Motor and handwriting.


Occupational Therapy focuses on developing important sensory, fine motor, behavioral and problem-solving skills to improve your child’s success in daily activities such as dressing, grooming, feeding, play, handwriting and social interaction. Occupational therapy also addresses splinting and positional equipment needs.


Physical Therapy focuses on helping your child explore his or her environment by improving strength, range of motion, balance, posture, endurance, motor coordination and ambulation. Physical therapy also helps patients and their families in choosing appropriate orthotics, wheelchair mobility and positioning equipment.


Speech-Language Therapy focuses on improving communication, feeding and swallowing function to help your child develop his or her expressive and receptive language skills, speech intelligibility, fluency, emotional regulation, memory, abstract reasoning, feeding skills, oral motor skills, swallowing skills, voice skills and use of augmentative communication devices.

How to get a referral for therapy services?


A written order or referral from your child’s physician or licensed nurse practitioner is required to have your child evaluated for therapy services.


Your child’s success is highly dependent on your involvement and carryover with the therapy program. Our trained therapists will provide your child with a detailed home activity program that will improve your child’s success in goal achievement. It is your vital role as a caregiver to continue with your child’s home program when he or she leaves our clinic.
