About pediatric rehabilitation

Working together to help your child.


Care involves children, youth, and families every step of the way. Families and healthcare providers work together to:

  • take part in activities that are important to them
  • set therapy goals and activities to help children and youth develop skills
  • recover from a range of health conditions

AHS offers services for children and youth who have neurodevelopmental, developmental, or medical conditions. Services focus on:

  • health and developmental needs of infants and children in the early years
  • episodic care for children and youth in the child and youth years

If you are a healthcare provider, visit Rehabilitation information for health professionals.

Pediatric rehabilitation helps children and youth live well, build resiliency and take part in activities meaningful to them and their families.
