Every child is unique. That means every child deserves a unique approach to therapy – one that’s designed around their needs and abilities to improve their physical, social and daily living skills. At CoxHealth, our pediatric therapy program is built around this understanding, and the belief that family plays an incredibly important role in the therapy process.

Children from birth to age 18 with developmental delays, head injuries, spinal cord injuries or other illnesses or injuries may benefit from therapy. Our pediatric therapy team of physical and occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, audiologists and dietitians specializes in treating patients with orthopedic and neurological diagnoses. For high-risk and premature infants, we hold interdisciplinary follow-up screenings to identify the services and community resources that can best serve you. 

Physician referral is required for pediatric therapy, so talk to your child’s physician if you think our services might help.
