A Select Team of Specialists

The first step in rehabilitating a child is to provide a team of pediatric rehabilitation specialists who understand the physical, emotional and psychological needs of children and their families at varying stages of life. The specialists include:
  • Audiologists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists
  • Speech language pathologists
 
After a comprehensive evaluation, a treatment plan is developed with the child’s family to enable patients to achieve maximum functional levels as quickly as possible.
