Children's Services

Working with children and high-risk infants, our occupational and physical therapists assess and treat infants with developmental and oral-motor deficits. They also make splints to correct musculoskeletal deformities. Our staff includes occupational and physical therapists who are certified in advanced practice in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), and we also provide outpatient care at our High Risk Infant Follow-Up Clinic, located in our nearby Perinatal Center. Our therapists monitor the development growth of high-risk infants until the age of three.

Occupational and physical therapists at Valley Presbyterian Hospital are paneled by California Children's Services (CCS), a statewide program that treats children with certain physical limitations and chronic health conditions or diseases. CCS can authorize and pay for specific medical services and equipment provided by CCS-approved specialists.

Therapists work individually with children who have medical conditions that are physically disabling or require medical, surgical or rehabilitative services. These conditions include:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Club Foot
  • Congenital deformities
  • Global developmental delays
  • Involved neuromuscular diagnoses
  • Oral-motor deficits
  • Scoliosis
  • Torticollis
