The Pediatric Therapy program at EIRMC gives children, families, and caregivers one-on-one attention from specially-trained physical and occupationaltherapists, and speech-language pathologists. We work with children from newborn to 18 years old in a family-centered environment.
Many of our young patients see more than one therapist at each visit. This collaborative approach is specifically used for children with feeding difficulties and children with global delays.
Additional, many members of the Pediatric Therapy Team work in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and have expertise with premature and fragile infants.
Pediatric Speech-Language Pathologists help children communicate with others. They address language development, clarity of speech production, processing others’ speech and language, and feeding and swallowing skills.
Pediatric Occupational Therapists help children gain motor skills used for dressing, bathing and grooming tasks; coordinate use of their hands to play, write, explore, and learn; and use their five senses to process and make sense of the world around them.

Pediatric Physical Therapists help children develop muscle strength and tone, and coordinate those muscles to sit, stand, balance, walk, and reach.
The Pediatric Therapy Clinic offers individual treatment rooms as well as two gyms and a kitchen to best meet the needs of children.
