At San Juan Regional Medical Center, we understand that children are constantly learning, growing, and developing, and they do this best through play. Pediatric physical and occupational therapy aims to improve movement and dexterity development by working on age appropriate gross and fine motor skills. Pediatric speech and language therapy is designed to improve developmental communication milestones such as vocabulary, listening, understanding, and speech articulation. 

Pediatric rehabilitation services that are offered include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech-language therapy
  • Developmental screenings
  • Specialized feeding and swallowing evaluation and therapy
  • Post-discharge functional program

Games, swings, lofts, and fun activities are a few examples of the tools children use to help them with their growth and development at the San Juan Regional Medical Center Pediatric Rehabilitation Outpatient Center.
