Overview

The therapists and support staff of Akron Children’s Rehabilitative Services are the regional specialists for traumatic injuries in children and teens, as well as all types of pediatric disabilities, such as neurological and neuromuscular disorders, developmental disabilities, feeding and swallowing disorders, autism, communication disorders and hearing impairments. Our therapists treat patients of all ages from premature infants to adults with burn injuries and diseases of childhood.

Our team of audiologists, occupational and physical therapists, and speech-language pathologists provides the full continuum of rehabilitative care including:

  • Acute inpatient therapy for short-term care after a sudden illness or injury
  • Inpatient rehabilitation to provide intensive, long-term therapies for more serious or complex illnesses or injuries
  • A day rehabilitation program, which allows our patients to receive intensive therapies during the day, then return home with their families in the evening and on weekends
  • Outpatient therapy services at our Akron and Beeghly campuses and regional locations

Because we are the only pediatric rehabilitative service in the region that treats every stage of the recovery process, we can provide all the services children need, including inpatient care in a dedicated rehabilitation unit.

Our rehab facilities feature large, multi-purpose rooms to accommodate patients, staff and equipment, as well as child-friendly equipment that aids in strengthening, stretching, promoting balance and coordination, and stimulating the senses.

The Akron campus also has a mobility house that teaches children and teens how to perform daily activities in a real-life setting and a hydrotherapy pool.

What Should Families Expect When They Come for an Appointment?

At Akron Children’s, your child’s health and safety is our priority. Please continue to bring your child for wellness visits, vaccinations or sick care appointments that keep children healthy. We want to assure you that we have taken additional precautions to ensure a safe environment for your child and family. The following are additional safety efforts, in addition to our normal cleaning protocols, that we are taking to help you be comfortable bringing your child to an appointment.

Limiting the Number of Caregivers and Face Covering

The number of caregivers permitted to accompany a child to an appointment is dependent on the department you are visiting. Everyone visiting an Akron Children's facility is asked to wear masks or face coverings, except for kids under 2 or those with sensory issues. Masks will be provided for visitors who do not bring their own.

Health Screening Station Ahead Sign

Checking In and Screening of Visitors

Akron Children's now offers Mobile Check-in to limit your exposure to others. You'll receive a text an hour before your child's appointment arrival time. Click the link in the text when you reach the Akron Children's facility for your child's appointment. You will receive a confirmation text that reminds you to wait in your car. Once we determine appropriate spacing is available inside the building, you'll receive a third text to let you know it's OK to come in for your appointment.

Immediately upon entering the building, your temperature will be taken, either by a thermal scanner or a greeter who will also ask you a few questions.

If you are in a waiting room, you’ll notice signs and a limited number of chairs. This is to remind our patients to keep 6 feet of physical distance between your family and others.

Precautions If You Suspect Your Child Has COVID-19

Call your child’s healthcare professional if your child is sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing and has been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19. Your health care professional will work with Ohio’s public health department and the CDC to determine if your child needs to be tested for COVID-19.
