Pediatric Therapy Services

Designed for the Unique Needs of Children

At Nicklaus Children's Hospital we offer a full range of bilingual diagnostic and therapeutic services to meet the needs of infants, children and adolescents. All services are provided by a team of professionals who focus on the medical, therapeutic and educational needs of the child and family. Nicklaus Children's Hospital rehabilitative program includes both inpatient services offered to patients in the hospital’s neonatal, pediatric and cardiac intensive care units as well as outpatient care available at the hospital’s main campus and other South Florida locations.

A Select Team of Specialists

The first step in rehabilitating a child is to provide a team of pediatric rehabilitation specialists who understand the physical, emotional and psychological needs of children and their families at varying stages of life. The specialists include:
  • Audiologists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists
  • Speech language pathologists
 
After a comprehensive evaluation, a treatment plan is developed with the child’s family to enable patients to achieve maximum functional levels as quickly as possible.
