About Our Rehabilitative Therapy Services
The Children’s Clinics Rehabilitative Department provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, audiology, and nutrition services in an integrated care setting. Therapists, audiologists, and registered dietitian nutritionists work collaboratively with members of a child’s medical team to maximize outcomes. Services focus on promoting independence and function for children with special healthcare needs. The Children’s Clinics Rehabilitative Department is a community resource, providing evaluations and treatments in specialized areas including: feeding, wheelchairs, adaptive equipment, splinting and bracing, therapeutic casting, communication, hearing aids, and cochlear implants. An important goal across the disciplines is to educate caregivers about their child’s special needs and teach them how to improve their child’s day-to-day functioning. Therapist, audiologists, and registered dietitian nutritionists also coordinate with schools and primary care providers to ensure a consistent approach. Care is family centered with parents and caregivers directing the development of care plans and therapy goals.
