Pediatric Occupational and Physical Therapy

If your child needs developmental or other rehabilitation, our skilled rehabilitation therapists can help.

At Dominican Hospital Outpatient Rehabilitation Center, we help children with developmental, neurological, orthopedic, sensory or feeding difficulties and their families. We offer high quality occupational therapy and physical therapy, designed to meet unique needs of infants and young children.

We specialize in treating young and very young patients

Our team of occupational therapists and physical therapists is specially trained to work with babies, medically fragile infants, preemies and young children. In consultation with your family, they provide direct, hands-on, child-focused treatment. They also work to educate your family about many other issues related to your child’s condition and how to care for them.Based on your child’s individual needs, our team works with your family to develop therapy goals, an individual plan of care, and a customized home program, all designed to optimize the results of therapy. We will also help identify other programs in the community that may benefit you and your child.
