Helping Kids Get Back to Living Their Best Life

With Specialized Pediatric Rehabilitation

Sometimes, healing is a journey that may require a little extra help for kids to get back to feeling stronger and feeling whole. If your child’s treatment or condition requires rehabilitation to support healing, know that our pediatric rehabilitation program is staffed by caring professionals who are specially trained in a wide range of disciplines, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and audiology. The interdisciplinary approach and family-centric style of treatment at AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, focuses on the unique needs of your child and fosters the development of ongoing skills and strategies for successful healing.

We’re here to help you find the right physician or a location that’s convenient for you.

Pediatric Sports Concussion Program

The AdventHealth Orlando Sports Concussion Program partners with many local high schools to provide a testing program for athletes at risk for concussion. These student athletes are given computerized neurocognitive tests before the sports season begins. If the athlete sustains a concussion, then neurocognitive tests are given again. This helps to determine the impact of the concussion and provides important information about managing treatment. It’s our goal to provide each athlete with an individual plan for the safe return to playing sports.

Pediatric Hearing Loss Program

Have you ever wondered if your baby can hear after leaving the hospital? Does your baby startle to loud sounds and noises? Does he or she seem to hear some sounds but not others? If your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, it may be a sign of a hearing problem. While the signs and symptoms of hearing loss can be different for every child, if you suspect a problem, it’s best to seek help sooner rather than later. We have a highly trained pediatric care network, including ENT’s, audiologists and speech pathologists to help your child feel whole again.
