In developing the best comprehensive pediatric care plan for your child, we take into consideration several important factors:

  • Age
  • Medical history
  • Medical stability and equipment requirements
  • Rehabilitation or transitional goals
  • Social, spiritual, and educational needs
  • Activities of daily living
  • Functioning levels
  • Behavior issues

Daily Care Plan

After evaluation, your child is matched to a Care Level that forms the basis of their Daily Care Plan, detailing required hours of skilled care and treatments. At Pediatric Specialty Care, we understand that continuity with physicians and family helps to create the best possible outcomes. Our pediatric care specialists work directly with outside facilities to maintain existing patient-physician relationships, always including families in our pediatric care planning process and recommendations.

Stepping Stone Approach

Once your child is evaluated, our expert pediatric care specialists work regularly with physicians and families to assess, monitor, and reevaluate care levels. Our tools, technologies, and continued assessments allow us to provide a “stepping stone” approach to pediatric care. This technique helps us reach our goal of helping your child progress and work towards their maximum potential.
