At Baton Rouge General, our Pediatric Rehabilitation Department is dedicated
to helping kids get back to doing what they do best --- being kids!
Our physical, occupational and speech therapists have advanced certifications
and years of experience working with children of all ages and abilities.
Our programs help children learn basic developmental skills such as eating,
dressing, walking, writing and communicating. We customize your child’s
treatment plan to fit his or her individual needs and personality. Together,
we work to maximize every child’s potential.
