Children unable to perform age-appropriate daily life skills are referred to specialized pediatric therapists at Northwestern Medicine. From the impairment of fine motor skills to undeveloped social skills, a wide range of conditions are skillfully evaluated, diagnosed and treated by our our pediatric therapists. Treatment plans for our youngest patients involve the support and commitment of family members and caregivers, and our pediatric therapists provide families with the education and resources that enable them to be the best possible advocates and sources of support for their children.
By making a donation to Northwestern Memorial Foundation in support of pediatric therapy at Northwestern Medicine, you will help to ensure that our pediatric therapists will remain at the forefront of compassionate, comprehensive, personalized care for young patients with a variety of challenges and needs.
Northwestern Medicine’s pediatric therapists work collaboratively with patients and families to address the physical and emotional challenges presented by:
- Speech and sensory conditions
- Developmental delays
- Orthopaedic, skeletal and muscular conditions
- Emotional development
Services are delivered in three categories: physical, occupational and speech therapy. Initial screenings, full medical examinations and referrals from Northwestern Medicine physicians enable our pediatric therapists to develop a customized treatment program for every patient. Physical therapists develop treatment approaches that help children to regain mobility and strength while reducing pain. Our occupational therapists address challenges related to visual processing and fine motor skills, in order to help children feel more comfortable and to function well in school, at home and in social settings. The specialized speech therapists at Northwestern Medicine help to improve a child’s speech, comprehension and ability to eat and swallow comfortably.
