Outpatient Pediatric Therapy

Our staff consists of physical, occupational, and speech therapists who are specifically trained to work with premature, toddler, and school-age children.

Concerns regarding a child’s development should be discussed with their pediatrician who can refer them for an evaluation.

The pediatric therapy team is committed to meeting each child’s individual needs and frequently collaborates to minimize barriers to participation in school, home, and community environments.
