Pediatrics Program

Want to Help Seniors?

Please help us grow our network by volunteering for support groups.


The pediatric program is tailored
to young people who require physical, communication,
occupational, recreational, educational or
neuropsychological therapeutic intervention. Our goal
is to help the young person achieve, with joy,
his/her maximum potential and independence in
functional life skills, in a reasonable amount of
time.

At Northeast Rehabilitation
Hospital, we recognize the importance of coordinating
services within an overall program of care through
consultation with physicians, community agencies,
school districts, specialty clinics, etc. Our role
may be as primary caregiver to supplement already
existing programming.

In treating children, we find it
essential to include family members in the treatment
process. We encourage observation and participation
in treatment sessions. We encourage observation and
participation in treatment sessions. Every effort is
made to educate caregivers in the rationale for
therapeutic procedures as well as in methods of
intervention and how they can be integrated into the
child’s daily routine.

The physical therapist functions
as part of the rehabilitation team on evaluating and
treating any disorder affecting freedom of movement,
body alignment, postural stability, motor control,
endurance and/or the ability to function optimally
with peers within a normal home/school/play setting.

Occupational Therapy Services are
available for children displaying delays in the
developmental acquisition of specific skills or
children whose skills are impeded by the sudden onset
of disease or injury. Areas addressed include gross
motor, fine motor, sensory skills and their
integration and perceptual cognitive skills.

The Department of Communication
Disorders provides speech-language evaluations and
intervention to children of all ages (6 months and
up) who exhibit difficulty with: verbal expression,
comprehension of language, articulation, fluency of
speech, voice and/or eating/swallowing.

When children begin to have
trouble at home or at school, the cause of the
problem is often unclear. The Pediatric
Neuropsychologist provides comprehensive evaluation
of learning and emotional difficulties in children
(ages 3-18) and young adults.
