Rehabilitation services for children in Fort Collins, Colorado

We care for children from birth through the teens. We address many conditions including attention-deficit disorders, autism, cerebral palsy, developmental delays, genetic syndromes (Down’s, etc.), neurological injuries (head or spinal cord), sensory integration disorders and other conditions that affect their development.

Our program includes assistance for children, parents, and teachers with a goal to maximize learning for children with sensory integration dysfunction.

Our facility includes two large gyms, a climbing wall, a ball-bath play area, kitchen, and several private treatment rooms.

Your child is always seen individually by a credentialed therapist with a master’s degree or higher level of education.

We offer a family-centered children’s therapy program. We believe in the abilities of all children and will work with you to develop a comprehensive therapy program that will help your child develop the skills they need to participate in life. We create fun, effective therapy programs based on the interests and needs of your child and family.

Specialty clinics

The Cleft Clinic at Poudre Valley Hospital

We understand that learning your baby has a cleft lip or palate can be very difficult. Rest assured that our entire team of specially trained and experienced cleft specialists is here for you.

Located in the Children’s Therapy Services office just south of Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, the Cleft Clinic is made up of over 13 team members dedicated to caring for these unique patients. The nationally recognized team was established in 1997.

Children born with cleft lip and/or palate are often followed through to adulthood by their cleft team. In addition to regular appointments, such as speech therapy, the children typically come to the Cleft Clinic for an annual appointment, where they see all their specialists in one visit. The team assesses their development and addresses any ongoing needs. The timing of different interventions can thus be properly and optimally coordinated.

According to the Cleft Palate Foundation, cleft lip and palate are the most common birth defect in the United States. One of every 594 newborns-more than 6,800 U.S. children per year-is affected by cleft lip and/or palate. You are not alone, and we are here to help every step of the way.

The PVH Cleft Clinic is registered with the American Cleft and Craniofacial Association.

For more information or to ask questions about cleft lip and palate, call the PVH cleft palate team coordinator at 970-495-8780.

The Cleft Palate Foundation also has many comprehensive resources for parents like facts sheets, an informative video on how to feed your baby, bottle adaptations and more.

Integrative Autism Assessment Clinic

The Integrative Autism Assessment Clinic provides autism testing, diagnosis, and care planning.

Early Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) ensures your child receives the services he or she needs to thrive. One in 68 children are on the autism spectrum, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Diagnosing can start as early as two years old. Areas of concern may include:

  • Poor eye contact
  • Speech and language disorder
  • Repetitive behaviors
  • Unusual sensory interests
  • Not responding to his/her name
  • Upset by minor changes in routine
  • Echolalia

(Note that these areas of concern are not exclusive indicators of ASD, and people without ASD may display some of these symptoms as well.)

Questions and answers

  • How do I get my child evaluated? Contact your child’s primary care doctor for a referral. Please fax the referral to 970.495.8799. Once we receive the referral, we will contact you to schedule an appointment.
    • Note that some insurances will require authorization prior to services.
    • Our clinic receives several referrals daily, so please allow one week for us to process your request.
  • My child is scheduled for an evaluation. What can I expect? Our office requires that you complete a questionnaire prior to services. Also, we will conduct a parental interview, so be prepared to provide childcare during this time. We perform multidisciplinary ASD testing, and provide same-day results.
