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 seem similar. Recovery speed may also differ.

What is the same, however, is our approach to rehabilitation. We create a world of professional embraces. 


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.

Your son or daughter may meet many “helpers” or just a few. They’ve received specific training in treating kids and will help your child recover as much as possible – as soon as possible.

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

Please know that family and friends play an important role in your child’s care, too. You’re an important part of the team.
