REHABILITATION AND THERAPY SERVICES
At Cedarcrest Center, we provide a comprehensive program of pediatric therapy services. Our therapists evaluate and treat your child, employing a range of techniques and equipment appropriate for your child’s needs:
- Our physical therapist addresses range of motion, gross motor skills, ambulation activities, and provides assistance with positioning and equipment. Children have access to gait trainers, walkers, standers, adapted tricycles, and wheelchairs as appropriate.
- Our occupational therapist focuses on sensory integration, oral-motor skills, daily living tasks, feeding, range of motion and equipment.
- Our speech-language therapist facilitates expressive, receptive and augmentative communication. A child may use American Sign Language, Picture Exchange Communication, picture boards, or computer-based systems like touch-screens, DynaVox, TOBII Eye Gaze, and iPads.
We integrate rehabilitation and therapy services into every aspect of your child’s daily life here, so our therapy staff may work with children in our therapy suite, in the classroom, or in the residential area. Our therapy, education and direct care staff members work together to ensure that each child’s specific developmental goals for communication, movement and daily living activities can be addressed consistently all day every day.
