Pediatric therapy provides comprehensive and multidisciplinary rehabilitation for children from birth through 21 years of age. The goal of this type of therapy is to maximize the abilities of each child, while minimizing the negative effects of their impairments. This highly skilled and specialized service includes not only pediatric physical therapy, but occupational and speech therapy as well. The goal of pediatric therapy is to assist patients in meeting appropriate developmental milestones.
Pediatric physical therapy seeks to improve mobility, restore / develop function, manage pain, or prevent or rehabilitate from injuries.
Pediatric occupational therapy aids children in developing the skills needed to eventually grow into an independently functioning adult. Treatment can be targeted at improving fine and gross motor skills, self-regulation, or sensory processing.
Pediatric speech therapy treatments address expressive and receptive communication challenges that affect verbal and non-verbal language skills. They also can address oral motor conditions (chewing and swallowing), articulation, auditory processing and social skills.
At HPRC, we prioritize your child's care and comfort. We will start by conducting a thorough evaluation of your child's condition. Then, by taking an individualized approach with each patient, our team of experts will be able to develop a therapy plan that addresses the patient's specific needs.
