Programs

Personalized care plans

Our doctors and therapists create a care plan to help your child build strength and increase function and learning.

Whether your child needs help with movement, speech or learning. We use a team approach to ensure your child gets the tools and therapies they need to live an active and fulfilling life.

Our therapy programs

The pediatric rehabilitation programs at UW Health combine the expertise of many specialists.

We work with your child to improve their functional skills and help them learn to complete everyday tasks. Our encouraging team helps kids develop self-caring and other daily living skills. Children of all ages, diagnoses and levels of development use our programs. And the therapy plans we create will work for you at home, so you can help your child grow and develop.

We provide care after surgery or injury or for other specific conditions. Working with us, your child will improve their balance and gait and strengthen their muscles. We teach your child to use any adaptive equipment they might need.

Our therapists use exercise and play therapy to help your child develop speech and verbal skills. We provide therapy to improve feeding and swallowing.

We design and fit children with a variety of custom orthotics, devices that provide support or correct alignment issues of the spine or limbs. We also create and fit prostheses (artificial limbs) which we often make in our on-site lab. Follow-up care and education are among our services.
