Caring for Your Child - Pediatrics Rehabilitation Services

Medical conditions, illness, injury or premature birth can all lead to delays in your child's development. We know your child has unique rehabilitation needs. We are here to help. We serve children from infancy to 18 years of age who are experiencing problems with developmental delays, daily activities, speech or chronic conditions.

Our experienced and highly-trained team partner with families, school personnel and health care providers to make the most of your child's abilities. Recognizing that childhood is a special time of life, we incorporate fun and playful therapy activities to promote progress. 

Your Care Team

We love working with kids and are dedicated to helping your child succeed. Many team members have advanced training and certifications.

  • Family Involvement - Your family is an important part of your child’s rehabilitation team. You know your child’s needs at home, school and in the community. We teach you how to continue rehabilitation in these environments. 
  • Occupational Therapy - Our occupational therapists will evaluate and treat fine motor, self-help, feeding, oral sensitivities and school readiness skills. We help with daily life skills such as eating, dressing, writing, social skills, and we will help your child improve strength and develop skills to be more independent. 
  • Physical Therapy - Our physical therapists evaluate and treat large motor skills such as rolling, crawling, sitting and walking. We will help your child increase body strength, balance and coordination. 
  • Speech-Language Pathology - Our speech-language pathologists evaluate and treat speech and communication skills.
  • Home Care Pediatric Rehabilitation Services - If your child is home-bound and needs rehabilitation services at home, we can help.  We will coordinate through either Northfield Home Care, a service of Northfield Hospital or Rice County Home Care(link is external).

Tummy Time

Your baby needs floor time on his/her back and tummy to allow for development of muscles and motor skills.

Floor time helps avoid plagiocephaly, an abnormal flattening of the back of the head, and torticollis, a tightness of the muscles on the side of the neck. Often plagiocephaly and torticollis are preventable, if parents use floor time immediately after their child is born. Tummy time is safe from day one. Your baby needs tummy time right away to begin development.
