About Us

Pediatric rehabilitation therapists at AU Health use a patient- and family-centered approach when caring for your child. This means you and your child's rehab team work together to set goals that allow everyone to have a roll in helping your child achieve functional independence at home, school and in their community.

Many diseases and disorders can benefit from rehabilitation therapy - whether it's a brain or spinal cord injury, trauma, illness, or congenital disability - we offer a wide range of rehabilitation programs delivered by licensed therapists during outpatient visits or acute inpatient hospital admissions.

We treat children with:

  • Amputations
  • Autism
  • Brain injuries 
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Cancer
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular disorders
  • Multiple system disorders
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Neurodevelopmental conditions
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Sensory processing dysfunction
  • Spasticity (tone) conditions
  • Spina bifida
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Swallowing and feeding issues
  • Voice disorders

We understand that rehabilitation for children is not the same as rehabilitation for adults. Children are still growing; going through vital stages of mental and physical development, so it's important to be seen by therapists who are educated and trained to work with younger patients.

  • Pediatric Physical Therapy (PT): Focuses on rehabilitation to improve balance, fitness, motor skills, and strength in children with disabilities, disorders or injuries. We can also help children achieve milestones if there are developmental delays.
  • Pediatric Occupational Therapy (OT): Helps children to regain, develop, and maintain skills they need in order to live a more functionally independent lifestyle. 
  • Pediatric Speech-language Pathology (SLP): We see children who have trouble with oral communication, language development, or swallowing issues.

We do more for our pediatric patients

For some children, rehabilitation services also include evaluations, fitting, or training on personal assistive devices that will increase their ability to be more independent and mobile. We work with children needing:

  • Orthotics and/or prosthetics
  • Splinting and serial casting
  • Wheelchair evaluations
