Children and youth with special healthcare needs often require a multitude of therapies to help them overcome their developmental limitations. Developmental therapies refer to Occupational (OT), Physical (PT) and Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) therapies. While information and resources are provided for the individual therapies, remember that there is often overlap in the treatment of some disabilities such as feeding problems, which may be evaluated and treated by both occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists.

Cincinnati Children's helps educate patients and families about each therapy type and puts them in touch with the proper resources.
