Pediatric Rehabilitation

The SOMC Neuro Rehab Department offers a comprehensive, interdisciplinary rehabilitation program for the pediatric client who may be dealing with any one of several different diagnoses. Some of the common pediatric conditions that we treat are Cerebral Palsy, Down's Syndrome, developmental delay, torticollis, traumatic brain injury, autism, and gross/fine motor development. The program focuses on increasing the client's functional level and independence. Our interdisciplinary approach is comprised of Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology and Audiology services. Our program encourages involvement of family members and caretakers so that a patient and their family can be more confident and comfortable with that client's needs at home.

Treatment principles center on facilitating achievement of normal, age-appropriate development. Appropriateness of referral to other specialists and agencies are evaluated; these may include REACH, early intervention programs, orthotists and pediatric physiatry.
