The Pediatric Center for Rehabilitation and Behavioral Health offers a full range of pediatric services designed to help children of all ages reach their highest level of developmental function. Our therapists work in collaboration with parents and other caregivers to help children develop and enhance their physical, communication, behavioral and functional skills. This includes evaluating and treating children with a variety of orthopedic, neurological and developmental impairments, as well as those with speech, language, memory, swallowing or neurological disorders. The Center is also pleased to offer evidenced-based autism intervention through Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), which focuses on programs that are individualized to each child’s specific needs. In all cases, our overall goal is to help each child meet their full potential and to increase their likelihood of success in all areas of life.
We offer specialized treatment for children of all ages which incorporates therapeutic play and recreational activities to address the individual goals of the child and family. Therapists work closely with physicians, schools and early intervention providers to optimize the function of the child.
Members of the pediatric rehabilitation team include occupational therapists, physical therapists and speech therapists that work together on a coordinated plan of care for each child.
