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.
