Rehabilitation Services

Injury and illness can be devastating to children, interrupting their physical, educational, emotional and social development. Some children are also born with conditions affecting their physical, mental and social well-being. Rehabilitation helps children learn to lead more independent lives.

Le Bonheur’s Rehabilitation therapists take a team approach when caring for our patients. We partner with families and patients to develop a plan of care that maximizes the patient’s functional independence.

We offer these services:

Specialty clinics

Therapy services are part of various clinics including:


Rehabilitation services are available in the hospital and at our outpatient facilities in downtown Memphis and in East Memphis. In the hospital, our therapists work with the medical team. We often assist patients in the neuroscience, orthopedic, neonatology, cardiac, gastrointestinal and infant care areas.

Referral process

  • Outpatient physical therapy and occupational therapy require a referral from the primary care physician or pediatrician.
  • Outpatient speech services require a referral from the primary care physician or pediatrician. It also requires a hearing screening within the past six months to eliminate a hearing disorder as a contributing factor. The hearing screen requires a separate physician referral and can be scheduled the same day as the speech evaluation.

Services for children with special needs

There are many resources at Le Bonheur and in the community for children with special needs. We have compiled a list of resources.
