Infant Therapy Program

The Akron Children's Hospital Infant Therapy Program provides complete evaluation and treatment for infants and children (birth to 3 years) who have delays with development or who are at risk for developmental delays. The team works closely with the developmental pediatricians at Akron Children's. These specialized services are available upon referral from your child's pediatrician.

A number of factors may place your child at risk for developmental delays. Some common factors include:

  • Low birth weight
  • Prematurity
  • Congenital or chromosomal abnormalities
  • Persistent irritability
  • Lack of active movement
  • Poor feeding skills
  • Poor weight gain

The Infant Therapy team is a group of specialists who will assess your child's abilities and, if necessary, recommend a treatment program designed for your child. Their ultimate goal is to assist you in helping your child achieve daily skills such as eating, moving, talking and playing. Our specialists will evaluate your child in the following areas:

  • Physical therapy: Posture and movement
  • Occupational therapy: Visual skills and the use of hands
  • Speech pathology: Oral feeding, listening and vocalizing
  • Dietary: Nutrition and growth
