Pediatric therapy

Helping your child reach maximum potential

Our pediatric therapy programs help children excel through physical, occupational and speech language therapy. We offer therapy for children from birth to age 21 with a wide range of needs. Since every child’s needs are unique, our highly trained clinical team will create a specialized plan of care that is just right for your child. We will provide progress updates throughout his/her care, because your involvement is vital to your child’s success in therapy.

Our approach to care

KORT understands that what you’re experiencing with your child is difficult; we want you to know that you’re not alone. We are committed to partnering with you in caring for one of the most important individuals in your life, your child.
