Family Health West Pediatric Rehabilitation

Parenting can be hard in many aspects, but when your child needs specialized therapy the process to find the best care can be overwhelming. We get it. We embrace the whole-family health approach because your child’s needs and development impact everyone in your family. 

Our pediatric rehabilitative clinic is built to provide skilled therapy specially crafted for your child. A number of our therapists have over 25 years of experience. Treatment is specialized to help your child meet the demand of their development. Whether the need is physical, developmental, speech, eating, or other more challenging needs, our team employs the broadest range of specialists to serve your family. 

Building trusting relationships is so important. Many of our pediatric patients are referred to us by family physicians, pediatricians, and other community therapists. Their families know you can count on us for your child’s special needs, care, and treatment. Whether you need us for a long time or for a specific healing period, we have a variety of services and treatments. Diagnostic assessments are often the first step on the journey ahead. You are not alone. We're here to support not only your child, but you and your family.

What do we treat? Here is a variety list, but not complete.

  • Speech, language, voice, and articulation therapy 

  • Swallowing and feeding therapy 

  • Physical therapy 

  • Occupational therapy 

  • Orthotic assessments 

  • FEES - Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing

  • MBSS - Modified Barium Swallow Study 

  • Wheelchair assessments and customized hardware 

  • Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) evaluation and prescription

  • Individual therapy sessions 

  • Group therapy sessions 

  • NICU follow-up services 

  • Bioness Integrated Therapy System (BITS)

If you don’t see something that your child has or needs, please reach out to us. We’d be happy to speak with you, your family physician, or other treatment providers. Collaboration is important to us.

One example of our collaborative efforts is our Go Baby Go partnership with the CMU Engineering Department. Each year, several local children with unique needs are chosen as the recipient of this mobility project. Then, the teams of therapists and providers work with engineering students (and additional CMU students) to design and build a custom battery-powered kid car. These motorized cars are fun! But more importantly, they are designed to meet the needs of the child. These needs could include specialized seating supports or include cargo space for respiratory or feeding equipment. The power and steering are modified to be accessible for the child as much as possible. This is an amazing collaboration that challenges CMU students to create solutions and is a blessing to families.
