Lurie Children’s provides comprehensive rehabilitative services for children who present with atypical development or acquired impairment due to disease or injury. We specialize in assessment and treatment of children’s motor skills, communication skills, hearing, feeding and swallowing. Our dedicated clinicians work to help children return to their previous functional status, as well as gain new skills and abilities that they aren’t able to learn on their own.
Our 120 healthcare professionals, with an average of 13 years of clinical experience, make our division one of the most experienced pediatric rehabilitative care teams in the region. Our specialists treat conditions of any severity, from minor to complex. We treat more than 53,000 infants, children and teenagers each year as outpatients, in addition to providing in-hospital care.
Rehabilitative Services includes the departments of audiology, occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech-language pathology. Unlike many other rehabilitative services, our division has its own on-site orthotics-prosthetics department.
