At Outpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation Services, caring professionals understand the challenges that families face when a child has physical or developmental disabilities. Our interdisciplinary team of professionals provides the family with support and guidance throughout the therapeutic process.
Our pediatric therapists and developmental specialists assess each child’s developmental needs, set appropriate goals and create an individualized intervention plan and a home treatment program. Working together, the team coordinates care for children with multiple needs among their physical, occupational and speech therapies.
We stress parent/caregiver involvement, training and education for the entire family. Additionally, we provide information and referrals to community resources, thereby increasing a child’s potential for success.
We treat children from newborn to adolescence who have been diagnosed with any of the following conditions:
- Autism spectrum
- Developmental delay
- Speech and language delay
- Sensory integration dysfunction
- Fine and gross motor skill delay
- Hearing impairment
- Orthopedic and neurological conditions
We perform comprehensive evaluations that include careful observation and assessment of speech and language skills.
Next, with input from the family, we develop treatment plans with individual therapeutic goals to facilitate improvement in communication and oral-motor skills. We offer speech/language services from newborn through adolescence.
Occupational Therapy Services
Our occupational therapists (OT) assist children with developmental delays and
sensory integration problems achieve greater independence in the functional skills
necessary for activities of daily living.
After evaluating and assessing each child’s skills and abilities, therapists develop a therapy program that includes consultation, coordination of treatment sessions with physical and speech therapists if appropriate, and instructions for home program follow-through.
Physical Therapy Services
The goal of physical therapy (PT) is to help children with developmental delays
in gross motor skills achieve a maximum level of independent mobility.
Our therapists evaluate and assess each child’s skills and abilities and then design a treatment plan that includes therapeutic techniques, consultation, coordination of other therapies and a home program.
California-licensed and ASHA-certified audiologists screen for and diagnose hearing problems. We also provide a comprehensive hearing aid dispensing program.
