Pediatric Therapy Services
A family-centered approach to pediatric rehabilitation and therapy
The Children’s Institute offers an impressive array of therapy services. As the only CARF-accredited freestanding pediatric specialty rehabilitation hospital in Pennsylvania, and one of only 5 in the nation, we are the region’s most comprehensive provider of care to children with special and orthopedic needs. We assess the needs of each patient, one child at a time. We take into account every unique set of circumstances, every individual’s obstacles and potential, and every family’s situation. Our staff offers a patient-focused, family-centered approach to their work. Everything we do revolves around helping the child and supporting the family. To that end, parents participate in many of our therapies, and are offered the information and training they need to better understand their child’s progress and to continue the therapies at home.
We recognize that most of our kids need a combination of therapies to progress and that the more therapeutic options and opportunities they have, the better. Whether a child needs inpatient or outpatient treatment, therapy services are part of the plan.
The following therapies are available for inpatients, and are also offered at our four outpatient locations in Squirrel Hill, Irwin, Bridgeville and Wexford.
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Speech/Language Therapy
- Behavioral Therapy
- Nutritional Therapy
- Recreational Therapy (inpatient only)
Our facilities are designed to help our patients and therapists achieve the amazing. For example, our facilities at our Squirrel Hill location include:
- Large gymnasium
- Two full-size swimming pools
- Living Spaces
- Assistive devices
