Outpatient Medical Rehabilitation Promoting Independence and Quality of Life
The outpatient medical rehabilitation program focuses on individuals 3 years and older from West Virginia and those from out of state between the ages of birth and adulthood.
Occupational Therapy-Occupational Therapists help children learn skills like play, self-care, dressing, eating and feeding, which allows them to be more self-sufficient in their daily lives.  Parents and caregivers are specifically trained in proper handling, positioning, self-care techniques and home exercise programs.
Physical Therapy-Our therapists work to teach skills such as walking, sitting, crawling and rolling.  Parents and caregivers also are trained in proper handling, positioning and home exercise programs
Speech Therapy-Our Speech Therapists treat individuals who have difficulty communicating because of a speech, hearing and/or language deficit or delay. Through our R.E.A.C.H. (Real Experience with Augmentative Communication Hardware) Program, individuals have access to a complete assistive technology and augmentative communication lab.  A certified Audiologist also is available at Easter Seals to provide hearing tests.  
Social Work Services-Our social worker assists families in obtaining services at Easter Seals, as well as linking clients to available resources to help meet their individual needs and the needs of their family.  The social worker also works with families in obtaining insurance authorizations and orienting them to the policies of the Center.
