Pediatric Therapy Team

The Johns Hopkins Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation has a pediatric therapy services team that consists of physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech language pathologists who provide rehabilitation services to children in inpatient and outpatient settings.

Our pediatric therapists assess and treat children of all ages with a variety of impairments affecting development, mobility, feeding, self-care and daily activities. We work with children to help them enhance their performance at home, school, and in the community.
