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 pediatric physical therapy, pediatric occupational therapy, pediatric speech therapy, pediatric audiology services and scoliosis treatment.
Our state-of-the-art location is outfitted with equipment that helps our therapists achieve the best functional outcomes. In many cases, therapeutic exercise and play, in conjunction with a daily home exercise program, is prescribed. We also strongly emphasize parent and caregiver participation in all aspects of treatment.
For children with audiological impairments, the Atlantic Hearing Center provides complete hearing aid services and comprehensive diagnostic assessments, including central auditory processing testing. We also evaluate and manage cochlear implants.
Occupational therapy can be beneficial for children with developmental delays and sensory processing disorders or those who have poor handwriting and difficulty dressing. We specialize in treatments that address fine motor skills, self-care, participation in playtime activities and other aspects of a child’s daily life.
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, neuromuscular disorders and musculoskeletal disorders.
Atlantic Rehabilitation’s speech language pathologists treat children who have difficulty speaking with feeding and swallowing dysfunction. We emphasize language articulation and oral motor development.
The Schroth Method can help children with scoliosis avoid surgery. Our specially-trained physical therapist teaches exercises that develop the inner muscles of the rib cage, thereby changing the shape of the upper trunk and correcting spinal curvature.
