Rehabilitation Services at IU Health North Hospital offers a large pediatric program including physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy. Our therapists are skilled in working with children of varied diagnoses through evaluation and treatment to achieve optimal development and functional abilities in a fun environment.
Physical therapists plan therapeutic programs to assist children with their gross motor and movement skills. Areas of focus would be on tasks such as rolling over, sitting up, crawling and/or walking, if possible.
Occupational therapists create strategies that help a child in their daily living situations and focus on their adaptive and fine motor skills. Some of these skills may include dressing, writing, eating, and sensory integration.
Speech therapists help children to develop communication skills and work with children with speech or language disorders. Therapy services range from voice therapy or speech therapy, to memory/cognitive therapy or swallowing/dysphagia therapy.
