Individualized Rehabilitation Plans
Upon referral to UH pediatric rehabilitation services, our pediatric physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists perform a comprehensive evaluation to determine how the child’s injury or condition is impacting his or her growth and development, level of independence with activities of daily living, and ability to function at an age-appropriate level at home and in the community. After the initial evaluation, our pediatric therapists work with the child and parents to develop an individualized therapy plan.
For children who require multiple services, our therapists coordinate care to create an optimal rehabilitation plan that addresses all areas. How often a child is scheduled for therapy is based on level of medical complexity, rate of progress, and other factors that may change over time. Parents and family members are considered essential members of the therapy team, providing input regarding the child’s goals and plan of care and performing home programs and carryover activities to ensure the most successful outcome.
Pediatric patients in need of rehabilitation services may be referred to the main campus in Cleveland, Ohio, or one of our convenient suburban locations.
