New Hanover Regional Medical Center's Pediatric Rehabilitation program helps infants and children reach developmental milestones through specialized therapy. Some therapy begins as early as when an infant is in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU); other patients are treated through their teen years.
Oleander Rehabilitation offers one-on-one pediatric outpatient therapy. As the only outpatient clinic offering physical, occupational, and speech therapy at the same location, our center uses a multiple discipline approach that allows convenient scheduling so that a child can benefit from specialized treatment from each therapy type. Medicaid and most insurance are accepted.
Oleander Rehabiliation serves children with diagnoses including:
- Brachial Plexus Injuries
- Fineand Gross Motor Delays
- Therapeutic Listening
- Auditory, Language and Speech Disorders
- Cerebral Palsy
- Down Syndrome
- Sensory Processing Disorders
- Feeding Disorders
- Handwriting Problems
A physician's referral is required to schedule an appointment. Appointments are generally available between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Call 910-452-8104 for scheduling.
Community Support Group - Sensory Processing Disorder Parent Support Group
Sensory Processing Disorder is the inability of the brain to correctly process information brought in by the senses; it can be seen in children with Autism and ADD/ADHD or can be present by itself. If you have heard "My socks are too tight," or if your child avoids hugs, is a picky eater, or has 45-minute meltdowns, this group can help.
The group offers support, discussion, and guest speakers on various topics regarding Sensory Processing Disorder. For meeting location and any additional information, please email Kacey Trout, OTR/L at firstname.lastname@example.org.
