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 pediatric rehabilitation 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

  • 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.

Scheduling Therapy Sessions

Each child is seen for an initial evaluation by one of our therapists. The therapist writes an evaluation report and a plan of care based on your child’s individual needs, diagnosis, and age. After all insurance authorizations are obtained, the Nicklaus Children's Hospital scheduling department will contact the parents to coordinate all the therapy appointments at one of our children's rehabilitation centers.
