Your Child's Experience

Your Child’s Experience

There’s no one-size-fits-all rehabilitation – especially with kids. Your child’s therapy plan may be different from another’s, even though their challenges can seem similar. The speed of recovery may also differ.

Our approach to rehabilitation is the same for every child and condition. We heal with our hands and treat with our hearts.


Your child’s outpatient care begins with an evaluation. Based on specific needs and goals, we’ll develop a rehabilitation plan that could range from just a few sessions to several months. We’re here for as long as your family needs us.

Our team has specific training in treating kids and will help your child recover as much as possible – as soon as possible. Depending on your child’s needs, your team may include:

  • Rehabilitation doctors
  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists
  • Psychologists
  • Speech-language pathologists
  • Behavior analyst

Family and friends play an important role in your child’s care, too. You’re part of the team!
