At Schwab, we take kids seriously. You’ll find expert care for our youngest patients – from infants to teens and everyone in between.

Our teams of therapists know different kids need different treatment. All Schwab kids have custom therapy programs designed just for them – whether the condition is common or complex.

Bilingual therapists are available to ensure your child maximizes their time with us.

Your Child’s Experience

There’s no one-size-fits-all rehabilitation – especially with kids. Your child’s therapy plan may be different from another’s, even though their challenges can seem similar. The speed of recovery may also differ.

Our approach to rehabilitation is the same for every child and every condition. We heal with our hands and treat with our hearts.


Your child’s outpatient care begins with an evaluation. Based on specific needs and goals, we’ll develop a rehabilitation plan that may range from just a few sessions to several months. We’re here for as long as your family needs us.

Our team has specific training in treating kids and will help your child recover as much as possible – as soon as possible. Depending on your child’s needs, your team may include:

  • Rehabilitation doctor
  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists
  • Speech-language pathologists
  • Family and friends play an important role in your child’s care, too. You’re part of the team!


We provide an array of resources, including education, specialty services and therapies for specific patient needs. Services include:

  • Assistive technology
  • Aquatic therapy
  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) evaluation
  • Audiology
  • Augmentative communication
  • Autism evaluation
  • Constraint-induced movement therapy
  • Cranial remolding/Helmet evaluation
  • Equipment evaluation
  • Neurological rehabilitation
