    Pediatric Therapy Services Overview

    Pediatric therapists are specifically trained to improve the lives and daily function of children who suffer from a wide range of injuries, congenital conditions, communication challenges as well as chewing and swallowing difficulties. The role of a pediatric therapist is to work with the child and their family to assist each child to reach their maximum potential to function independently and to promote active participation at home, in school, and in the community. Pediatric patients range from infants to 18 years of age.

     

    What makes pediatric therapy different from regular therapy?

    Children often don’t understand why they are in therapy. Play, family involvement, and one-on-one care are exclusive to the pediatric therapists’ care of children. Fun and motivational factors are incorporated into functional activities to make each therapy session feel like play. In addition, the pediatric team provides family support including coordination of services, advocacy, and assistance with enhancing development.
