Pediatric therapy: Our approach

Children with physical, speech or developmental challenges can’t always communicate effectively. Our pediatric therapy specialists begin with a thorough speech, physical, behavioral and psychological evaluation. This evaluation is customized to the difficulties your child is having, be it challenges with swallowing, feeding, voice, physical or behavioral, and even psychosocial. In a child-friendly environment, we tailor long or short-term programs creatively designed to help kids recover without making it feel like work.

Physical, occupational and speech therapies are important for building vital everyday abilities, including:

  • Reducing pain
  • Increasing range of motion in the joints
  • Increasing energy and endurance
  • Improving large muscle function
  • Fine motor/handwriting skills
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Personal tasks like bathing, getting dressed or eating independently
  • Positive emotional coping methods
  • Social skills and academic focus
  • Effective communication skills
  • Achieving developmental milestones
  • Clear and effective age-appropriate speech

Family involvement

The pediatric therapy centers at the Bryn Mawr Rehab outpatient locations, encourage parents and guardians to actively participate in their child’s individual therapy sessions. That way, caregivers can understand and practice the exercises at home, speeding recovery and ensuring the child’s goals are met.
