Approach to Care

Whether a child needs a single therapy or a multi-disciplinary rehabilitation program, our pediatric rehabilitation team develops a customized care plan to ensure the best possible outcomes.  In helping our patients reach their potential, our staff addresses the physical, social, emotional and academic needs of each child, laying the foundation for the continuing development of abilities and the experience of success.  Clinicians work with pediatric specialists, referring physicians, schools, the family and the child to set goals and review progress.  We also help families identify additional services and resources available to them within the healthcare system and in their communities.

Leadership and Expertise

All consulting physicians are pediatric specialists who provide diagnostic and consultation services for children with a wide variety of developmental delays, injuries, illness and disabilities.  Our clinicians have advanced training and extensive experience working with children from birth to fifteen years of age.
