In addition to having appropriate licensure, many of the Rehab’s pediatric therapists have certifications in specialty areas such as neuro-developmental treatment, sensory integration and praxis testing, neonatal oral motor assessment scale, and VitalStim; to name a few.

How can we help?

Physical therapist are ‘movement specialists’ and as therapist specializing in pediatrics, we look at movement from birth on to adulthood.  We work with infants who are not quite meeting their milestones such as rolling, sitting, crawling or walking. We work with children who are having trouble with balance and coordination, strength, pain or difficulty keeping up with their peers. We have PT’s that are certified in kinesiotaping, SI (sensory integration), Neurodevelopmental Technique (NDT) and Infant Massage.

Occupational therapists work with patients from birth up to adulthood who need help achieving independence with their ‘job’ of being a kid. They focus more on the fine motor development of infants and children which includes everything from eye/hand control, reaching and grasping to handwriting, and ADL’s as well as everything in between. We have therapists trained in the SOS Approach to Feeding, SI (sensory integration).

Speech therapists work with patients on their speech and language development, as well as feeding problems. They work on both receptive and expressive language, infant feeding problems, and problem feeders.
