Outpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation
Pediatric rehabilitation group classes offer a unique opportunity for your child to practice and improve a variety of skills, like handwriting or speech production, in the company of other youngsters.
Our skilled clinicians, consisting of speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists and physical therapists, will conduct comprehensive evaluations and determine appropriateness of group therapy services based on patient need and appropriate pairings.
Children must be referred by a physician for these classes. Reach out to your pediatrician for more information.
Benefits to group therapy:
- Mimics real-world, natural environments
- Opportunities for social engagement and building relationships with others
- Increased carryover and generalization of skills
- Peer models
- Peer support and normalization
- Increases child engagement and motivation
