Pediatric Therapy Program

Through a collaboration with Southern Indiana Rehabilitation Hospital (SIRH), we offer a wide variety of services to ensure that the children and families get the help they need to become healthy and self-sufficient. Services include:

  • Consultative and counseling services to families and children who are experiencing behavioral issues. Usually the behavioral issues are connected to a child’s disability and we are seeing increasing numbers of children with autism receiving services. Counseling includes both group and individual sessions.
  • Educational seminars for educators and other professionals on children with special needs and behavioral issues.
  • Consultation is provided to the teachers in our Children’s Learning Center to better equip them in dealing with behavioral issues of children with special needs.

SIRH provides therapies including speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy. We also contract with psychologists employed by SIRH for the consultative and counseling services within our Pediatric Therapy program.
