The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh

When you’re looking for the right person to help address your child’s health, you want an open ear, an open mind, and experience. At The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh, we have all three.

We are committed to providing high quality outpatient therapy services for children. We continually advance our treatment methods – by using new techniques, as well as new technology – to produce better therapeutic interventions for children. Quite simply, The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh is your best choice for outpatient pediatric rehabilitation and therapy.

With five convenient locations in Squirrel Hill, Wexford, Irwin, Bridgeville, and Pleasant Hills, the care you need is close to home. Outpatient services might address:

  • Orthopedic and sports injuries
  • Fine and gross motor difficulties
  • Chronic pain conditions
  • Concussions
  • Feeding and swallowing difficulties
  • Developmental delays
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injuries

Each child’s treatment is personalized and family-centered. We focus on the needs of the patients and their caregivers because we know that the key to long-term success is family participation and understanding. We incorporate families into our therapy sessions, promoting understanding, a sense of collaboration, and confidence. In our experience, this approach is key to our patients reaching their maximum potential and living the most fulfilling lives possible.

Our outpatient developmental pediatrics practice, led by Dr. Scott Faber, serves infants, children, and teens with a wide range of developmental-behavioral disorders, including autism spectrum disorders. Developmental pediatrician Dr. Bethany Ziss also cares for children at The Children’s Institute, with patients from infancy through adolescence who have a variety of developmental disabilities.

“Each child and family is unique and we provide ongoing individualized care and support as children grow and develop over time,” Ziss said. “Our family-centered plans incorporate a variety of strategies, from book recommendations to referrals to community organizations, as well as more traditional medical and therapy approaches.”

Every case is different. Whether your child is on a mission to recover from a sports injury or is more medically or developmentally complex, our experienced team at The Children’s Institute is ready to help.
