Northwest Texas Hospital - Inpatient and Outpatient Therapy

Pediatric Therapy Services at Northwest Children's Hospital, which is part of Northwest Texas Healthcare System, uses a team-centered approach in treating children born prematurely or children with physical, neurologic or developmental disorders. Teams provide children with an individualized therapy process that incorporates physical, occupational and speech-language therapy. Because children are treated by therapists who help children transition from inpatient to outpatient therapy, they experience a continuum of care that helps maximize their opportunity for success.

Pediatric occupational therapy at the Northwest Children's Hospital helps promote a child's ability to function at an optimal level in major life roles or activities of daily living. A child's "occupation" is centered on play, age-appropriate self-care and school-related skills.

Pediatric physical therapy at Northwest Children's Hospital addresses a child's ability to perform functional movement activities, including rolling, crawling, walking and running. 

Pediatric speech-language pathologists work to help improve the speech, language and feeding skills of children at Northwest Children's Hospital.
