Pediatric ReHabilitation Therapy

When a child is diagnosed with developmental delay / disorder, the first thing recommended by a doctor to start either physiotherapy or occupational therapy. Mostly pediatrician or child specialist, who sees your child for common childhood illness or vaccination, will refer to a specialized centre or a trained professional for starting pediatric therapy. If you happen to see a neurologist, he/she will refer to an occupational therapist. If you visit an orthopedic surgeon, he/ she will refer to a physiotherapist. If you happen to see a developmental pediatrician he / she will refer to a developmental therapist or early intervention specialist. Please note, visiting an occupational therapist or physiotherapist is not enough as the child may require other services also. It is always better to consult an experienced developmental pediatrician or developmental specialist to have a holistic treatment plan including the need of assistive aids / technology. 

Pediatric therapies or habilitation therapies are considered the backbone of all habilitation programs. All children with developmental disorders require habilitation therapies.
