Pediatric Rehabilitation Services

Pediatric Rehabilitation Services at Children's Hospital include occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy. We provide skilled assessment, consultation and treatment for children from infants to young adults who are recovering from an injury or surgery, or who are managing a chronic or congenital condition.

We identify your child's immediate need and create a personalized plan for long-term wellness. Comprehensive rehabilitation can improve your child's function and quality of life, restore independence and promote physical healing.
