Safety Is Our Priority – Learn more

At ChristianaCare, everything we do is For the Love of Health™, and that focus has guided our response throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We have redesigned how we deliver care to keep our patients and caregivers safe, while providing the high-quality care that our community needs and deserves. This includes greatly expanded options for virtual care and telehealth visits, as well as guidelines that support social distancing, wearing masks, a clean environment and limited numbers of patients and visitors to ensure safety.

Rehabilitation appointment information – Learn more

For the safety of our patients and caregivers, we have expanded and changed how we deliver care to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Depending on your medical needs, your appointments could take place in-person or by video. Existing ChristianaCare patients can request a virtual appointment by sending a message to “Rehabilitation Services Physical, Occupational, Speech Therapy” on the ChristianaCare patient portal.

Before Your Appointment

Please complete the required health history information on the ChristianaCare patient portal. Any additional required paperwork will be emailed to you.

 

What to Expect from an In-Person Visit

When you come to see us, you will experience a welcoming environment that’s a little different.

Before your appointment, you will answer some COVID-19 screening questions through secured text messaging or at the door. Our team will let you know when you are cleared to come into the office.

Your support person can help you get into the office, but they should plan to wait in the car during your appointment. You should plan to wear a face mask throughout your appointment.

After your appointment, our team will assist you in getting back to your car.

Pediatric Rehabilitation Services

Children are born to run and play, jump and sing. Their ability to freely move and express themselves promotes independence, increases socialization through participation in group activities, enhances motor skill development, improves strength and endurance, enhances learning opportunities and allows them to assume greater responsibility in taking care of their own daily needs.

When your child’s movement, speech or hearing is restricted, life can be challenging. Our pediatric team specializes in physical and occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, early childhood education and audiology is here to help children with orthopaedic, neurological and developmental diagnoses, including:

  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
  • Autism.
  • Brachial-plexus injury (to the nerves of the neck and shoulder).
  • Cerebral palsy.
  • Developmental delays in fine or gross motor skills.
  • Developmental disabilities.
  • Down syndrome.
  • Feeding and swallowing disorders.
  • Hearing loss.
  • Receptive and expressive language delay.
  • Sensory processing disorder.
  • Stuttering.
  • Torticollis (twisted neck).

Early intervention can profoundly impact a child’s skills and abilities and can help parents support their child’s improvement. We work with a variety of agencies to provide the earliest, most promising intervention.

We also understand that some children respond best to treatment in familiar surroundings, so our pediatric team will provide care in the home, daycare or school.
