What is a pediatric therapist?
Pediatric therapists work to provide services for special needs children in home, outpatient, and in-patient clinical settings. Pediatric therapists may specialize in occupational therapy, physical therapy, or another specialty.
What is the typical age range for pediatric physical therapy?
While children are often referred as young as birth and as old as 18, there is no age limit. Since pediatric physical therapists have the most comprehensive knowledge of childhood conditions, we often have older “kids” coming back well into their 20s.
