Millions of infants and children are affected by a wide range of physical and developmental concerns. To help ensure their mobility and long-term independence, Atlantic Rehabilitation offers physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and audiology services tailored to pediatric patients. Our team of rehabilitation experts work in tandem with a Goryeb Children’s Hospital physiatrist to create individualized treatment plans, including home exercise programs, when necessary.
For children with hearing impairments, Atlantic Rehabilitation provides specialized group programs that focus on handwriting, sensorimotor skills and adaptive equipment training.
Occupational therapy can be beneficial for children with developmental delays or those who have poor handwriting and difficulty dressing. We specialize in treatments that address fine motor skills, self-care and activities of daily living, and sensory processing.
Frequent falls, muscle sprains or strains and delays in developmental skills are all signs that a child may need physical therapy. Our individually-tailored services help improve balance and coordination, gross motor skills, orthopedic injuries, musculoskeletal disorders and neuromuscular disorders.
Atlantic Rehabilitation’s speech language pathologists treat children who have difficulty speaking and eating. We emphasize language articulation, oral motor development and feeding and swallowing skills.
