Our Pediatric and Adolescent Medical Rehabilitation Program helps children who have experienced an injury or illness, or who have a development disability that has had a significant impact on physical, and/or cognitive function regain lost abilities or learn new skills through a combination of physical, occupational and/or speech therapy provided in a dedicated pediatric gym. For children who will be returning to school, school reentry services are also provided.
