With all-new facilities and an expanded team of skilled, certified specialists and licensed therapists, Nemours duPont Pediatrics, Voorhees brings a new level of care to children throughout South Jersey.

If a physical, cognitive, or developmental problem makes it difficult for your child to learn, process information, or perform everyday tasks (like self care, school, and leisure activities), our occupational therapists can help. We’ll evaluate your child’s needs, consult with other professionals, and provide family education for you, the parents, as well as siblings and others involved in your child’s care.

Using this family-centered approach we can help your child by:

  • managing sensory disorders
  • splinting upper extremities
  • training movement and strengthening muscles
  • helping you and your child learn to manage activities of daily living, such as eating, dressing, and hygiene

Additional services, including specialized types of diagnostic testing and treatment, are available at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE.
