Our approach to therapy for pediatric diagnoses and disabilities
Our pediatric neuro rehab programs are led by highly specialized, highly trained therapists who combine their years of experience with the latest proven practices to deliver creative – and truly personal – therapies. Whether at a therapy gym or a neighborhood park, our pediatric patients experience therapy in an atmosphere that is
Our pediatric outpatient services are customized as a 3-4 week multidisciplinary therapy program. This program is based on two highly recognized methods that allows a child to make exceptional strength gains in a short period of time.
Additional pediatric therapy services are provided in our home and community based and care settings.
In addition to typical goals of therapy, such as building strength in the legs, we work with kids and their parents to establish short-term and long-term goals like going on a school field trip. Not only does setting these goals help increase the patient’s motivation, but it gives the therapy team a clear to-do list of scenarios for which to prepare.
Where we provide pediatric neuro therapy
Pediatric Treatment Center Outpatient Program
Our best-known pediatric program is PTC (Pediatric Therapy Center), an outpatient center at our Seattle-area location. Families travel to PTC from many states to take advantage of our specialized equipment such as the TheraSuit ®, aquatic therapy, a pulley system, the LiteGate ® system and a bungee cord/harness system. We encourage family support and participation during treatment and while developing independence with home programs.
Home and Community Pediatric Neuro Therapy
Over 30-plus years, we’ve provided pediatric neuro therapy services to hundreds of children across the United States through our home and community rehab programs. These programs use the same evidence-based approach as our children’s outpatient center; however, therapy takes place in the child’s own environment rather than a clinic. This is essential for families with home-bound children and children who are immunosuppressed and offers a huge advantage in treatment. Because therapy takes place in familiar environments, we can safely address real-life barriers in real-life settings – leading to greater motivation and success, such as school reintegration.
Pediatric home and community neuro service areas include:
- Arizona – Phoenix, Tucson and Flagstaff Areas
- California – Bay Area
- California – Sacramento Area
- California – Southern California
- Georgia – Augusta Area
- Michigan – Detroit, Ann Arbor and Lansing Areas
- Texas – Dallas-Fort Worth Area
- Texas – Austin and San Antonio Areas
- Texas – Houston Area
- Utah – Salt Lake City Area
- Washington – Seattle Area
The Texas Hill Country School serves children, adolescents and young adults (ages 6-22). The school specializes in working with students with acquired brain injury, autism and other developmental and neurological difficulties. Both residential and day programs are available.
A multidisciplinary approach
“If you’re able to engage the kid in therapy, you’re going to have a better result.”
