Outpatient Services 

The Pediatric Therapy Center provides outpatient rehabilitative care to children (newborn to age 18) who have physical and/or learning challenges due to illness, injury or congenital causes. Our therapists are specially trained in pediatric rehabilitation, so they can assess your child’s abilities and build a specialized therapy program for your child. They will work with you and your physician to develop a personalized care plan to help your child reach his or her maximum potential. 

Children with a variety of medical and developmental concerns are referred by their pediatricians and other medical specialists for evaluation, treatment and follow-up care from physical, occupational and speech therapists, and our certified audiologist. 

Our services are provided within a developmental play framework and family participation is encouraged to carry over activities and techniques into the child’s normal routine.
