Outpatient Rehabilitation and Groups

Outpatient Services
La Rabida’s bright, state-of-the-art rehabilitation facilities are specially equipped for children with a variety of rehabilitative and developmental needs. Children are assessed individually with parents present.

After the assessment, the team meets to determine an individualized treatment plan and goals that are carefully designed with input from the family. The model of delivery will depend upon the therapists' recommendations and the child's and family's needs.
