Rehabilitative Services

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.
