Pediatric Physical Therapy (203-688-7994)
Pediatric rehabilitation services offers examination, evaluation and intervention for children, from birth through adolescence, who are experiencing functional limitations or disability due to trauma, developmental issues or disease process. Our team consists of physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists who work with patients and their families to develop treatments that are specific to their individual needs. Therapy sessions may include exercises, training in use of adaptive equipment, or age-specific play-based activities to support your child's development and recovery. To better accomplish this, therapists work closely with physicians, nurses and other pediatric team members. Patient and family education is an important component of rehabilitation. Following hospitalization, many children receive outpatient rehabilitation services at Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital's new comprehensive pediatric specialty center at One Long Wharf in New Haven.
