Pediatric rehabilitation services we offer

Our therapists collaborate with parents, teachers and other healthcare professionals to design effective treatment plans and create an environment that is fun and encouraging for the child.

Pediatric physical therapy

Our physical therapy program incorporates exercise, manual therapy, play therapy and aquatics to improve your child's flexibility, coordination, balance and strength.

Pediatric occupational therapy

Occupational therapy helps your child achieve the skills they need for their day-to-day life such as zipping their jacket or brushing their teeth. Through the development of fine motor skills and strength, your child will be better prepared to handle tasks that require small, steady movements.

Pediatric speech therapy

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) help your child develop essential communication skills for interacting with others. We work with children who have neurological speech disorders as well as articulation and phonological disorders. We also provide assessments that track your child's progress as they learn.

Pediatric feeding therapy

Feeding and swallowing issues can impact all areas of your child's life. If your child is having trouble eating or retaining nutrition, feeding therapy can help them gain the skills they need to eat age-appropriate meals.
